US fast food chain Chick-fil-A to hold pop-up event in Singapore in June

SINGAPORE – American fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A will hold a pop-up event in Singapore from June 26 to 28. It will be the first time the popular chain has set foot in Asia.

The pop-up at Esplanade Mall will open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 7 p.m.

Customers can expect to try the Chick-fil-A Original Chicken Sandwich, a recipe developed 60 years ago by founder S. Truett Cathy.

Breaded, boneless chicken breast is pressure cooked in peanut oil and served on a buttery, toasted bun with two pickle chips.

Waffle Potato Fries, Coca-Cola and water will also be available at the pop-up.

Fans can pre-register starting June 3 to reserve a seat for the pop-up event. More information will be available on the fast food chain’s Instagram page @chickenandsmiles.

In response to queries from The Straits Times, Chick-fil-A said it will not charge customers for the pop-up experience.

However, each ticket reservation will cost $10 and all proceeds will go to the Community Chest. The chain will match the donation amount dollar for dollar.

In the United States, the price of a Chick-fil-A Original Chicken Sandwich starts at US$4.95 (S$6.70).

The Atlanta-based company currently has more than 3,000 restaurants in 48 US states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and Canada.

In 2023, the company announced that it plans to open restaurants in Europe and Asia by 2026, with locations in five international markets by 2030.
