Singapore, 9 July 2019 – Following the announcement that American cult-favourite burger joint, FIVE GUYS, will be opening in Singapore, Zouk Group shares that the first outlet will be located at Plaza Singapura. Taking over a prime position on the ground level of mall near the main atrium, the premises at Plaza Singapura will allow FIVE GUYS to accommodate both indoor and outdoor seating options. The outlet is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2019.
“We want our first-ever outlet for FIVE GUYS to be in the heart of the city, where it is convenient, easily accessible, and with high traffic complemented by a great tenant mix in the vicinity. Plaza Singapura offers us just that. We are very fortunate to have secured this opportune space, and to be furthering our partnership with CapitaLand,” says Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group.
“CapitaLand is excited to extend our partnership with Zouk Group for the anchoring of FIVE GUYS’ Singapore flagship outlet at Plaza Singapura. Celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, Plaza Singapura is one of Singapore’s most iconic malls on Orchard Road that is popular with both locals and tourists. Part of the mall’s enduring appeal lies in its capacity to refresh its offerings with new concepts and coveted brands. I am confident that Plaza Singapura will be an excellent platform for the well-loved burger joint to reach out to its fans in Singapore and the region,” says Chris Chong, Managing Director, Retail, CapitaLand Singapore.
