Pancakes with Your Selfie on Them? Yes, It’s Really Real.


Free pancakes with your selfie on them? Yes, it’s really real! The #PancakeSelfieExpress truck has been hanging out here at #HolidayInnUF before the big breakfast event tomorrow morning on the University of Florida Campus.

The Holiday Inn Express brand embarked on a 9-city tour across the US as the proud sponsor of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) football, bringing with it not only a pancake Narcissus himself would have adored, but late checkout and breakfast until noon as part of their “Snoozapalooza” campaign. The late checkout/breakfast promo began back on Sept. 17 and will run through December 18th for guests staying at a Holiday Inn Express on weekends.

The on-trend food truck allows guests at the event on the University of Florida campus tomorrow to start their day with a heaping serving of technology as the high-tech laser printer and super fast pancake maker takes your selfie from phone to food in a matter of minutes. It also made a great backdrop from some really fun photos our team took earlier today.


The Holiday Inn Express Pancake Selfie Express food truck will be visiting the University of Florida campus tomorrow from 9:00AM until 12:00 PM as SEC Nation broadcasts live from campus. More info about the event here.
