Five Guys opening a store in Singapore and maybe Malaysia by year end

Popular U.S. burger joint, Five Guys, will be opening a restaurant in Singapore sometime towards the end of the year.

The restaurant in Singapore will be the first one in South East Asia but franchise holder, Zouk Group, is tight-lipped exactly where the outlet will be and when it will be opened. They’ve only indicated that it will be within the fourth quarter of this year.

Although unverified, there are talks that the group is planning to open a Five Guys outlet in Malaysia as well.

Originating from Arlington, Virginia in 1986, Five Guys was started by the Murrell Family, who ran the burger joint as a family business until 2003 when they began franchising.

Today, it has over 1,600 restaurants worldwide across North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia, with the largest presence in the United States and United Kingdom.
