Singapore-listed food-and-beverage operator Jumbo Group has opened its first Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh and Xinyao Hainanese Chicken Rice restaurants in Shanghai.
Located in the commercial hub of Puxi at Shanghai One International Trade Centre, both restaurants occupy a 2800sqft area.
The opening of the group’s first Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh restaurant in Shanghai follows the successful launch of four other restaurants in Taiwan in the span of 15 months, according to a company spokesperson.
“Together with its outlets in Singapore and Taiwan, the opening of the Shanghai outlet brings the total number of Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh restaurants in the region to nine,” said the spokesperson.
“Our Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh brand has been highly successful in Singapore and Taiwan,” said Ang Kiam Meng, executive director and group CEO at Jumbo. “Both these outlets are strategically located within a new landmark building in Shanghai, and enjoy access to both office workers and shoppers alike. We certainly look forward to a warm reception for these Singapore heritage foods by both locals and tourists.”
Apart from Ng Ah Sio and Xinyao, Jumbo operates four other brands, including Jumbo Seafood, Jumbo Kitchen, Zui Teochew Cuisine and Chao Ting.
Founded 1987, Jumbo Group has 38 outlets across 15 Asian cities.
