A&W Singapore opening second outlet

American fast-food chain A&W Singapore will open second outlet in Ang Mo Kio Hub in July.

The outlet at AMK Hub’s basement will span 2812sqft and seat up to 142 diners.

Unlike the Jewel Changi outlet, the AMK one will be ‘family-oriented’ and more flexible to accommodate larger groups of diners.

There will also be a counter for customers to watch waffles being made, and a selfie corner to satisfy millennials.

A retail section will sell merchandise such as t-shirts, caps and pins will be set up.

“The A&W brand is something people remember from childhood,” A&W international manager for business development Sally See shared with The Straits Times.

“We see baby boomers taking their children to the Jewel outlet. With the AMK Hub outlet, we hope they can relive those memories of the time when A&W used to be in Ang Mo Kio.”

Initially, the new store will trade during normal mall hours but it will eventually be open 24-seven.

The menu will feature A&W signature items, and will expand to include breakfasts as well.

More A&W Singapore stores are scheduled to open from the second quarter of next year with the Tampines and Jurong areas targeted.
