F&B Franchising

The F&B industry is one of the most dynamic yet competitive industries in Singapore. Many times, we hear friends or families eagerly sharing with us their dreams about setting up a cafe or restaurant. And that is perhaps why we see new food establishments springing up every day and F&B franchises being sought after day after day.

Earlier this month, we attended the Food and Licensing Asia 2011 at Marina Bay Sands. It is great to see some of our fairly young (by that, I mean 5 years or less) F&B customers introducing their F&B concepts to enthusiastic international visitors!

Are you an aspiring F&B owner? Check out these promising F&B brands:

With so many F&B franchise opportunities to choose from, it is essential to gather these key pieces of information from the franchisors:

  • Franchise Fees
  • Royalties and ongoing A&P Fees
  • Legal Fees
  • Leasing Fees and Security Deposit
  • Initial Investment (including opening inventory, food equipment, furniture and fittings etc)
  • Working Capital Requirement
  • Projected P&Ls
  • ROI and Profitability


Commercial Kitchen Refrigerating Equipment

Chillers and freezers are one of the most basic food service kitchen equipment required for all F&B businesses. They are important simply because they store everything you need for your food preparation, from raw ingredients to work-in-progress to cooked food.

This is the reason why a significant number of businesses in the F&B as well as the hospitality industry make it a point to invest in the right kitchen equipment from a reputable commercial kitchen equipment supplier. This is where Bakers and Chefs come in.

Aside from offering world-class kitchen equipment, we also offer a leasing programme with zero percent upfront costs with a lifetime warranty that includes free kitchen equipment repairs and maintenance.

On top of the said advantages, we also practice quick approval (1 day). As soon as we receive your payment and complete documents, we arrange delivery and take care of your kitchen equipment installation afterwards. Plus, our knowledgeable personnel can help you obtain the right kitchen equipment that can complement your operational needs in the most effective and efficient way possible.

As with all restaurant equipment, there are factors you need to consider when purchasing your commercial refrigerating equipment. Here is a non-exhaustive list of features you should compare when making your selection:

  1. Capacity
  2. Blower system/piping system?
  3. Automatic/manual defrosting?
  4. Drainage outlet required/not required?
  5. Price (when comparing price, compare the $ per litre to find the best value)
  6. Sizing dimensions
  7. Efficiency (how fast can temperature decrease?)
  8. Ventilation (how even is the cooling within the cabinet?)
  9. Warranty
  10. After-sales service

Being an established kitchen equipment supplier, you can rest assured that we are going to get back to you in a timely manner. To ensure that you will get your money’s worth and obtain kitchen equipment that can tap the success potential of your business.
