From Popeyes: Refreshed storefront design that Fei Siong Group is looking to adopt for upcoming Popeyes Singapore outlets






Fei Siong Group first began its journey into the local food and beverages industry, starting from a humble fishball noodle stall. Over the past 27 years, Fei Siong Group has gradually grown, and now operates over 160 outlets islandwide, as one of Singapore's leading food service companies. Fei Siong Group's dining concepts range from food kiosks to specialty stores and food atriums – notable names include Encik Tan, EAT, Malaysia Boleh! and Nam Kee Pau. Now, Fei Siong Group is looking to open its first Popeyes store in January 2023, reflecting the latest visual design and store enhancements.

"This agreement marks Fei Siong Group's first venture into the fried chicken quick service restaurant industry. We believe in Popeyes' ethos, to serve delicious fried chicken for everyone, and we look forward to bringing more value to guests and fans in terms of the brand look and menu offerings. In line with recent digital transformation efforts in the local F&B scene, we will also be looking to streamline operations through innovative technology in the coming months," said Mr Tan Kim Siong, Chairman of Fei Siong Group.

Popeyes has been in Singapore for well over a decade, and with this agreement between RBI and Fei Siong Group, customers can look forward to refreshed and modernised Popeyes outlets islandwide, starting with a new outlet opening at The Rail Mall in January 2023. Additionally, Fei Siong Group remains committed to delivering high food quality, and looks to bring exciting new menu items to guests in Singapore.

"Popeyes has been serving Singaporeans for a long time, and we believe Fei Siong Group will continue to do so as a great franchise operator for years to come. They have established themselves as a household name, and their success with local food businesses is indicative of their understanding of the Singaporean palate. We believe that Fei Siong Group's expertise in local food will provide invaluable experience to replicate the global success of Popeyes in Singapore," said Rafael Odorizzi, APAC President of Restaurant Brands International.
