Yes, you may be able to get Ikea's famous dishes delivered right to your doorstep. Currently, they're testing the program in Paris, according to Fast Company. Apparently, shoppers from around the world buy so much food from the furniture store that they're claiming to be the sixth-largest fast food distributor, the article reported.
If you live in Paris—or are traveling there—here's what you'll be able to get delivered: beets, cabbage, salads, and salmon. I'm a little disappointed that they're not offering their famous meatballs, but maybe they will in the near future.
If this pilot program is a success, it's likely that they'll expand to other parts of Europe. We can only hope that the test makes its way stateside shortly after that.
But based on the report from El Confidencial, there are a lot of grey areas. Ikea hasn't specified whether the food is being delivered frozen or warm and ready-to-eat. “We do not have any further details to at this point, as we are very early in the process," the brand told Fast Company, when they asked for additional information.
The one thing that is clear? Why Ikea is trying to get into the food delivery business: By 2023, it is projected that food delivery will become a whopping $161 billion market. That's a huge opportunity for the already-huge company.
