Investing in restaurants in Singapore, Vietnam and Myanmar

The Singapore Business Federation is organising a seminar, with support from the Restaurant Association of Singapore, on business opportunities in Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam through direct investments, franchising and other commercial arrangements for Singapore companies.

Besides rising affluence, there are several other socio-economic trends that will boost growth in the restaurant and food retail services sector in these places.

They include rising urbanisation, health and wellness consciousness, such as switching to organic or premium foods; increasingly busy, hectic lifestyles, which will benefit fast-food chains; and the Westernisation of food choices.

Throughout the Asia-Pacific, domestic fast- food chains, including small-scale local ones, will expand and attract consumers by offering quality products and by targeting suburban areas ignored by multinational chains.
