DineEquity Inc., the Glendale-based owner of IHOP Restaurants and Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar, is making a heavy push toward franchising. More than 95% of the company's thousands of restaurants are now owned by entrepreneurs, DineEquity said Tuesday when it announced its first quarter earnings . The franchise model helps keep the company's balance sheet from wild swings, leading to a 5.5% boost in profit to $31.3 million, or $1.64 a share, from $29.7 million, or $1.53 a share during the same quarter a year earlier.

DineEquity Inc., the Glendale-based owner of the Applebee's and IHOP restaurant chains, had a strong fourth quarter after suffering a severe slump a year earlier. Several factors helped the recovery, including the company's increase in franchising, warmer weather that drew out more diners and remodeling efforts that have freshened up hundreds of Applebee's locations. Profit for the quarter that ended Dec. 31 jumped to $27.3 million, or $1.51 cents a share, compared with a loss of $58.1 million, or $3.33 cents a share, from the fourth quarter of 2010.
