A&W has recently announced that they are making a return to Singapore.
In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore, A&W President and CEO Kevin Bazner has revealed that the new A&W outlet will be Halal Certified. He elaborated that the beef patties will be wholly sourced from Australia while its fresh chicken supply will “predominantly be sourced in the region and prepared locally”.
The announcement was received with support from the local Muslim community, many of whom have expressed their enthusiasm on A&W’s return.
Apart from that, customers can look forward to hot-sellers like fried chicken, burgers, Coney Dogs, waffle ice cream, curly fries and “freshly-made” root beer served in frosty mugs.
Despite being the first fast food chain to open its business in Singapore, A&W had shut its last Singapore outlet in 2003, the same year Yum! Brands acquired the company. The company has since been sold to A Great American Brand in 2011. Since then, there have been plans for the fast food chain to return to Singapore.
The exact location on where the outlet will be have not been confirmed, but they are looking into key neighbourhood towns and regions, commercial malls and the Central Business District.
Meanwhile, those who crave for some A&W delicacy can travel across the Causeway to Aeon Bukit Indah in JB. You can take either Causeway Link bus services CW3 (Jurong) or CW6 (Boon Lay) to take you directly there.
