Shakey’s goes to Singapore


    Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures Inc. is opening its first Shakey’s store in Singapore after signing a seven-year franchising agreement with Singapore’s Brenrich Pte. Ltd.

    Shakey’s Lucky Plaza restaurant on Orchard road is set to open late in the second quarter or early in the third quarter of 2021.?

    It will offer Shakey’s entire menu, including its thin crust pizzas and iconic chicken and mojos, although some items will be tweaked to comply with halal standards in consideration of Singapore’s large Muslim population.?

    Jose Arnold Alvero, Shakey’s vice president for international operations and franchising, said, Shakey’s Singapore’s primary target market initially will be Filipinos living in the city-state.

    “But the Lucky Plaza outlet is also seen to attract Singaporeans, as it is located along a busy business district,” he said.

    Shakey’s has three stores outside the Philippines.
