Business owners know Halloween creates opportunities to make extra money.
With this in mind, restaurants have started offering Halloween freebies to lure customers in.

IHOP is giving kids aged 12 and under a free Halloween "Scary Face" Pancake, which features a whipped-cream smile dotted with candy corn.
Chipotle will offer its annual "Boorito" promotion, which gives all customers dressed in costumes a $3 burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos.
