PROBLEM: Lidl is a chain of discount food stores. Unfortunately, people in Sweden don’t believe that high quality and low price go together. SOLUTION: We built a pop-up restaurant in Stockholm named Dill. The Two-Star chef, Michael Wignall, and his British team were in charge of the cooking. What nobody knew was that ALL the food was bought at Lidl. Dill was open for 3 weeks and served a nine course tasting menu providing a direct gourmet experience of Lidl’s products. When we revealed that Lidl was behind the restaurant, all media exploded. RESULT: Dill sparked a national debate about food quality and low prices. The 3 weeks were fully booked in 29 minutes. 500 people on the waiting list. The following 4 months were the most profitable since Lidl was established in Sweden 10 years ago. 2013 was Lidl’s first profitable year ever in Sweden.
