In response to the fervour and support from Singapore, Five Guys is proud to announce its second store here, following its debut at Plaza Singapura at Dhoby Ghaut. Spanning an area of over 2500 square feet with 73 seats, the newest store located at Serangoon Central’s NEX, opens its doors on 11 January 2021. Create the Five Guys burger of your dreams with over 250,000 possible combinations!
Known for its highly customisable menu, Five Guys hopes to encourage customers to build the burger or sandwich of their dreams by exploring different combinations and taste profiles based on their unique preferences. Five Guys offers 15 free toppings including an in-house mayo recipe created exclusively for Five Guys by Heinz. As such, there are approximately 250,000 combinations one can choose from.
Besides your classic cheeseburger and bacon burger, one can opt for a BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) sandwich, grilled cheese sandwich, and veggie sandwich. Customers may also enjoy their burgers in a lettuce wrap or bowl if they want to do without the bun.
Likewise, Five Guys milkshakes can also be tailored to specific tastes with its 10 free mix-ins including peanut butter, salted caramel, banana, and even applewood smoked bacon.
Attention all burger-lovers, cult-favourite American burger joint, Five Guys has opened its first Singapore store at Plaza Singapura.
Occupying a space of over 460 sqm, the outlet at Plaza Singapura is located along a prime stretch on the ground floor of the mall overlooking the Orchard Road belt. Currently comprising an indoor area that seats up to 52 patrons, the store will eventually also house an outdoor seating area that will increase the outlet’s capacity to accommodate up to over 160 patrons.
The Singapore store is the global burgers and fries joint’s first franchise in Asia, and the latest addition to Zouk Group’s growing food and beverage portfolio as part of its lifestyle expansion plans.
“After many months of planning, we’re thrilled to finally unveil the very first Five Guys store in Singapore. Five Guys is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and we were fortunate to be presented with an opportune space in the city that is highly accessible, so that fans of Five Guyscan come together to enjoy their favourite burgers with ease. This first outlet will be the bedrock upon which we grow the brand in Singapore, and we look forward to more to come,” says Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group.
Five Guys is a family run burgers & fries joint offering a mouth-watering menu made from scratch. Five Guys has been a Washington, D.C. area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to three of the Murrell brothers: “Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrells opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington, Virginia, USA. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the little burger joint quickly developed a cult-like following. Customers voted the burger “#1” in the D.C. metro area.
During the 1980s and 1990s, the Murrells perfected their simple concept. Five Guys became The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between two fresh-baked buns. Two more brothers joined the team and as the family grew, so did the business. Early in 2003, Jerry and Janie, together with the “Five Guys”, began offering franchise opportunities. In just under 18 months, more than 300 units had been sold.
Now, decades after FIVE GUYS first opened, there are locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, with planned expansion into Australia, Africa, Central and South America. By maintaining a simple ethos, coupled with the highest quality, the Murrells continue to follow through on the vision they outlined in 1986.
Five Guys’ mission is to redefine the global burger landscape by focusing on freshness and quality. With no freezers and no microwaves, it is built on the premise that all burgers and fries are made fresh every day. The meat is a perfected 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio. Patties are hand-made seven days a week on site. The bread, which is Five Guys’ only proprietary item, is baked fresh five days a week in a locally contracted bakery. The same unique recipe is used globally. Potatoes are cut fresh daily, soaked to remove the starch and double-fried in pure, no cholesterol peanut oil to create the firm exterior and fluffy ‘mashed-potato’ interior that Five Guys fries are known for.
Lifestyle company Zouk Group have announced that they will be launching US Burger Joint, Five Guys in Singapore.
The Five Guys franchise outlet is slated to open in the last quarter of this year in a "central" area.
In 1986, Five Guys opened its first location in Arlington, Virginia as a family-run restaurant named after five brothers.
Five Guys founder Jerry Murrell's mother always told him, "If you can give a good haircut or if you can serve a good drink at a bar or if you can serve a good hamburger, you can always make money in America."
