One brand – many companies
Our brand represents the sum of everything that we say and do. It links all IKEA retailers and other IKEA businesses together.
Reaching the many people with our products can be a challenge, that’s why we work with a business format called franchising. Our franchise system allows for international expansion, while protecting the IKEA Concept. Inter IKEA Systems B.V. is the IKEA franchisor who continuously develops the IKEA Concept and ensures its implementation in all markets. The franchisees run the day-to-day retail business and pay a franchise fee to do so.
Our franchising system
Inter IKEA Systems B.V. is the owner of the IKEA Concept and worldwide IKEA franchisor, and they have assigned other IKEA companies to develop range, supply and communication. Together with IKEA franchisees, we improve and develop IKEA to be more relevant and inspiring.
