JUMBO Group has opened its second franchised outlet in South Korea, in Ilsan, only three months after the first opening, the iconic Singapore chili crab restaurateur said in a filing to SGX Monday.

The food and beverage company has a 50 percent stake in the second JUMBO outlet, which is located at the rooftop of Didim Town building in Ilsan, a city northwest of Seoul, the filing said.

“Opening the second JUMBO Seafood restaurant in South Korea proves our commitment to continue expansion in the Asia region, and we hope that more South Koreans will now be able to enjoy well-loved Singapore cuisine,” Ang Kiam Meng, CEO and executive director of JUMBO, said in the statement. “Looking ahead, we seek to progressively grow our F&B outlets in North Asia.”

The new outlet is JUMBO’s seventh franchised seafood outlet, with the other six located in Bangkok, Fuzhou, Ho Chi Minh, Seoul, Taipei and Taichung, the filing said.

JUMBO also has 12 own-managed seafood restaurants, with six in Singapore, four in Shanghai and one each in Beijing and Xi’an, the filing said.
