Food Franchises That Should Already Be In Singapore

With a wide array of cafe food and restaurants available in Singapore, we constantly see new players entering the local F&B industry. Over the years, renowned and popular food franchises including Krispy Kreme and IIao IIao have also joined in, flourishing Singapore’s F&B market. Here are our top picks for popular food franchises that we think should be available in Singapore.
1. Shake Shack

Origin: America

Shake Shack originated from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park from 2001 to 2003 and given their overwhelming popularity for 3 years, a permanent burger stand was opened in 2004. Serving burgers, frozen custard, hotdogs, wine and more than what you can ask for from a burger stand — the American-based fast food chain has since opened outlets internationally, in cities such as Tokyo, London and Istanbul.

2. In-N-Out Burger

Signature item: Animal Fries

In-N-Out Burger goes way back to 1948 when they opened their first store, and has since celebrated their 300th store in 2015. Insisting on using the freshest ingredients only, In-N-Out Burger keeps their customers coming back for more of their burgers, fries and shakes.
