Apparently 30% of Ikea customers visit the furniture store solely to get their grub on in the cafes — those Swedish meatballs are something else! And now the peeps at the retailer are thinking of opening stand-alone eateries!
Last year alone, the company made $1.8 BILLION in food sales, up from $1.5 billion in 2013.
Stand-alone restaurants already exist in London and Paris, but US versions are still in the planning stages. Moreover, the company is also planning on expanding its meatball fare to include veggie and chicken options. Nice!
Anyway, would you be up for going to an Ikea restaurant, Perezcious readers???
