A&W CEO Kevin Bazner has given Singaporeans more to cheer after he confirmed that A&W Singapore would definitely be halal-certified to ensure the Malay-Muslim community can enjoy the food after a long absence.
He shared that A&W's beef will be sourced from Australia, chicken from the region and other ingredients to be provided by local suppliers.
He also gave a little background on what sparked A&W's return to Singapore:
“We have been discussing A&W Restaurants’ return to Singapore since 2011, when A&W Restaurants Inc took over ownership from Yum! Brands.
Given the popularity of A&W Restaurants brand and its signature products, coupled with rising demand from local consumers, we knew we had to give the Singapore market another shot"
