Ingka Group governance
We’re an IKEA franchisee
Ingka Holding B.V. is one of 12 franchisees operating IKEA stores and other sales channels. We do this under franchise agreements with Inter IKEA Systems B.V., which is the owner of the IKEA Concept and worldwide IKEA franchisor.
Inter IKEA Systems B.V. is based in the Netherlands and is a part of the Inter IKEA Group. Ingka Group and Inter IKEA Group share the same founder, history and heritage, but are two separate groups of companies with different management and owners.
All IKEA franchisees pay a 3% franchise fee to Inter IKEA Systems B.V., which gives us the right to operate stores and other sales channels under the IKEA Concept and Brand. It also grants us access to systems, methods and solutions, staff trainings, manuals and updates of the IKEA Concept such as stores layout, fittings and display concepts.
Our three businesses
Ingka Holding B.V. is the parent company of the Ingka Group, based in Leiden, the Netherlands. Ingka Group operates three businesses in one: IKEA Retail, Ingka Centres and Ingka Investments.
