An oasis for coffee lovers: First Jamaica Blue cafe opens in Singapore
Leading retail food franchise companies and regional licence partners, Foodco Group Pty Ltd and Universal F&B Pte Ltd, officially opened the first Jamaica Blue café in Singapore.
Jamaica Blue is also celebrating its 20th anniversary of operation in Australia, with currently 73 cafe franchises operating. Also operating in New Zealand with five cafes, China with 17 and the United Arab Emirates with three cafe franchises.
Singapore’s first Jamaica Blue café is located at One Raffles Place in the heart of Singapore’s financial business district. A second Singaporean Jamaica Blue café franchise is scheduled to open in mid-September at Star Vista, the nation’s prime shopping and entertainment venue located in the Western Central region of Singapore.
Familiar with the Foodco network as a former franchisee of Foodco’s Muffin Break brand, Universal F&B Director, Hermanto Karjadi, said Singapore is ripe for the launch of Jamaica Blue.
"The coffee drinking culture in Singapore has developed significantly during the past few years. Today’s Singaporeans are more appreciative of quality coffee than ever before and this appreciation, combined with Jamaica Blue’s unique and prize-winning products is sure to see great success in Singapore,” said Mr Karjadi.
According to Foodco Group Managing Director, Serge Infanti, the franchise company has been carefully planning Jamaica Blue’s entrance into the Singaporean market for quite some time.
"I have every confidence that Mr Karjadi and his Universal F&B team will continue to espouse in Singapore the excellent reputation that Jamaica Blue currently enjoys in other markets across the globe," added Mr Infanti.
