Rooting for you: A&W returns to Singapore after 16 years with Jewel Changi Airport outlet
The latest outlet of the fast food chain, known for its root beer and root beer floats, seats 80 diners and will be open for 24 hours a day.
After 16 years away from Singapore, American fast food giant A&W Restaurants returned with the official opening of its Jewel Changi Airport outlet today (Apr 11).
Located at Basement 2 of the new complex, the restaurant seats 80 and will operate for 24 hours a day to serve travellers at Changi Airport.
“Making our comeback into the Singapore market, we are very excited to be finally offering our well-loved classics again, alongside some newer favourites from around the world to cater to the market’s international footfall, as well as to Singapore’s evolved tastes and preferences,” said Kelvin Tan, director of Marketing and Communication, in a press release.
Classic items making a comeback include the iconic A&W root beer (S$2.90), served in a chilled mug, the Chicken/Beef Coney Dog (S$5.20) and Curly Fries (S$3.60).
Also available are the Root Beer Float (S$3.50) and Waffle Ice Cream (S$7.90).
Menu items making their debut in Singapore include the Cream Cheese Chicken/Beef Burgers (S$7.90), as popularised by A&W restaurants in Okinawa, Japan, and the Golden Aroma Chicken (from S$3.20) from A&W restaurants in Indonesia.

Open only to 500,000 who received preview tickets to Jewel...........the official opening for everyone else is 17 April. :)
The restaurant looks small though hmmm
Well you could always visit it at 2am in the morning, definitely there won't be much folks around.
I guess.......except that I would probably have to take a taxi or Grab back home, thus spending more money on transport.
The outlet at Batam looks way better, just saying.
Don Don Donki is also opening soon.
PSA: Queue at A&W Jewel is approximately 2.5 hours.
They should consider flashing this life-and-death announcement on all departure and arrival screens at T1, T2, T3 and T4.
SINGAPORE: Drawn like bees to honey, hungry customers wait in line patiently.
It is about 10am on Monday (Apr 15) and the promise of crispy curly fries, coney dogs topped with chunky relish and frosted mugs filled with frothy root beer seems more tantalising than anything else on offer at Jewel Changi Airport.
"We’re glad to have customers who truly are very patient with us and have been adopting the view that good food deserves the wait."
It is a wait that has spanned 16 years for many of A&W's die-hard fans.
A&W – which stands for Allen and Wright – made its debut in Singapore in 1966 at Dunearn Road, and the first A&W drive-through opened in 1970 at Bukit Timah Road. But after decades in Singapore, the fast-food chain decided to pull out of the country in 2003, with five outlets then.
This time, A&W is here to stay, insisted Mr Tan. And very soon, it plans to open a second outlet in Singapore.
"The outlet will be open in the next one-and-a-half to two months – in June," Mr Tan told CNA.
He declined to reveal more details, saying only that it will be located at a "very high traffic location".
"After opening here, we wanted to be able to scale in such a speed where it would ease off the crowd at the first outlet," said Mr Tan. "It’s not that we come unprepared, we know that there's going to be a huge crowd."
There are also plans to add a third outlet by 2020, he said.

The queue was still shockingly long at 11pm last night when I walked past...........
The level of idiocy demonstrated by Sinkies is unbelievable!
Guess I shall stay away for the time being, and wait till they open another outlet elsewhere.
