Buckle up, burger lovers – Singapore might be getting our very own Shake Shack if rumours are to be believed. An article by 8 Days revealed that Shake Shack's founder Danny Meyer is in town to give a talk at the Restaurant Association of Singapore – though we wouldn't be surprised if he's also here to scout out the burger chain's next location too.
This follows the Shake Shack's plans to open 14 outlets across Hong Kong and Macau, so clearly, ideas for Asian domination are in the works. The NYC-based chain is rumoured to be partnering with Korean F&B conglomerate SPC Group, which runs the bakery chain Paris Baguette, to bring those juicy burgers that people queue for hours for to our shores.
The first outlet is speculated to be at the upcoming Jewel Changi Airport, a five-storey undertaking connected to Terminal 1 with over 300 shops and food and beverage outlets. The behemoth of a complex, complete with indoor waterfall and a five-storey garden, is slated to open in 2019 – hopefully with Shake Shack in tow.
