JUMBO Group opened its second NG AH SIO Bak Kut Teh franchise outlet in Taipei City, Taiwan, in an agreement with franchisee Ho Sing Food, the iconic Singapore restaurateur said in a filing to SGX Tuesday.
There are now six NG AH SIO outlets, including the four in Singapore, the filing said. Bak Kut Teh is pork-rib soup.
“We are heartened that our JUMBO Seafood and NG AH SIO Bak Kut Teh outlets are well-received by the Taiwanese consumer market, which is a testament to the popularity of Singapore cuisine,” Ang Kiam Meng, group CEO and executive director of JUMBO, said in the statement.
JUMBO said it plans to work with Ho Sing to open two additional NG AH SIO outlets over the next 12 months.
