SINGAPORE - - Mainboard-listed Soup Restaurant Group announced on Wednesday (Aug 17) the opening of five new outlets in Singapore by October this year.
The five outlets include one at Changi Airport, Terminal 1, and two in Holland Village. The planned expansion will boost the number of the group's restaurants in Singapore to 19.
Said Mr Wong Chi Keong, co-founder and executive director: "Although the retail climate in Singapore remains challenging with high rents and labour costs, we feel confident that the expansion will position us for the future as our new restaurants are all located in new or refurbished malls with high traffic.
"We have also taken the opportunity to introduce new dining concepts and add new dishes. For example, our new Soup Heritage Restaurant at Raffles Hotel, which opened in June, expanded its menu to include chilli crab and an extensive wine list to cater to local residents and tourists."
