iFood Original Kitchens

iFood Original Kitchens are part of the company's brand strategy, consisting of a hub of temporary restaurant activations with the aim of providing exclusive experiences to its customers. Since 2019, the company has worked to elevate the eating experience of Brazilians, when it allowed its customers to order Bolos da Paz (cakes shown in the soap operas and A Dona do Pedaço), for example. 

In 2021, iFood teamed up with Netflix to provide fans of the Sex Education series with an unprecedented experience where they could order the famous cupcakes sold by the main character. Later that year, the company approached the gaming public and opened the well-known Avalanches snack bar, from the game Cidade Alta. In it, players could be iFood delivery people and make deliveries by electric motorcycle, bike or car, while consumers outside the game could order Avalanches combos at their homes, through the iFood app, experiencing a journey into the metaverse.
