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.

IKEA is a brand with operations all over the globe, and a large part of IKEA products are made from wood.
