The F&B scene is buzzing once again, with rumors of yet another cult fave American burger joint coming to our shores. We’ve already got Shake Shack at Jewel Changi which, if you haven’t tried, you should be prepared to wait two hours. London’s Burger & Lobster is also opening at the new airport multiplex this month, and now it seems Five Guys wants a bite of the burger scene in Singapore, too.
In an exclusive revealed by 8 Days, an anonymous but “credible F&B industry source” apparently told the publication that Five Guys has plans in the pipeline for an outlet in Singapore and Malaysia, possibly opening towards the end of 2019. If you’re a fan, you may know it’s already been dishing out burgers and fries in Hong Kong, its first Asian outpost, since late last year.
For some background info, the brand was established in 1986 in Virginia as a family business, and stayed in the family until 2003, when it started franchising. Those who haven’t sunk their teeth into a Five Guys burger should know that its signature is the double beef patty burger, which you can customize with any number of the 15 toppings, including pickles, grilled onions, mushrooms, and mustard.
Other items on the menu include hotdogs buns, grilled cheese or veggie sammies, regular or Cajun fries, milkshakes, and free peanuts to munch on so you don’t get hangry while waiting for your burger.
