Meatball Madness: Ikea restaurants could soon be a reality

What if I told you that sometime in the near future an Ikea restaurant, yep – just a restaurant with food (no furniture) would be coming to a suburb near you.

Well, according to the Swedish furniture giant, it could soon be a reality.

In an interview with FastCompany, managing director of Ikea Food Michael La Cour said that they were considering opening up stand-alone Ikea restaurants due to the popularity of their food.


Mr La Cour revealed to the magazine that 30% of Ikea customers are heading to the popular furniture store not for a new couch or dining table, but just for the affordable food.

In the last few years, Ikea has already been testing pop-up restaurants in London, Paris, and Oslo and they’ve been a success.

Here’s to hoping we’ll soon be able to make meatball Monday part of our weekly routine!
