Dirty Tricks Revealed...

 

Fancy Beating the Insane Queue or Making a Reservation In Advance?

 

Just yesterday, this guy with his clothes soaked full of perspiration, arrived at the stall wanting to order at 2.19pm.

But... We served the last bowl just 3 minutes ago!

 

I spoke to him and found out that he travelled here all the way from Pasir Ris. He was in the area, but apparently, was lost and walking around in circles. From Maxwell to Chinatown, and then to Amoy due to Google map and couldn't rush here in time.

 

I politely explained that it isn't that I don’t want to make a bowl for him, but I really do not have any ingredients left.

Due to our tiny space and tedious preparation process, our production is limited to 200 bowls daily. So, if someone comes and order 30 packets, it's a sure-bet we will sell-out earlier than usual.

 

I felt some of his disappointment and promised him a bowl on us the next time he visits.

 

********************************************************************

Previously, people would call me to reserve food for them and I would gladly obliged.

 

Often, after we had already sold-out, I still kept the stoves firing, maintaining that rolling boil in anticipation of their arrival. I waited and waited and waited...

 

But still, no one arrived. Kena played out.

 

An opportunity loss which I could have serve to other customers. A waste of time for nothing. Very precious time in our tight schedule which we could use to clean-up, prep and get ready for dinner service.

 

I was getting played out so frequently that I stopped taking in reservations by call.

 

*********************************************************************

I'd heard some feedbacks on that insane queue...

 

Just need to let you know that we try our best to move as quickly as possible while maintaining our high standards.

Customers don't usually order only one bowl. Most order 2-5 bowls and that's the reason why the queue doesn't seem like it's moving sometimes.

 

I know it’s frustrating for you when you're in a rush and your lunch hour is limited.

 

***************************************

To solve these issues, I'd partnered with Klook (a travel app) to offer you 'Reservation Ticket' & ‘Beat d’Queue Priority FastPass' options for your convenience.

 

These 2 products are listed in the Shop in our FB page.

Do note that only 8 FastPasses will be issue per timeslot. This is to minimize disruptions as much as possible to the main queue.

 

PS: These are dirty but very useful tricks. Do not use them unnecessarily!

  • File photo of the Food Junction outlet at Bugis in Singapore and a BreadTalk outlet. (Photo: Food Junction website and Facebook@BreadTalk) SINGAPORE: BreadTalk Group on Monday (Sep 2) announced its intention to acquire food court operator Food Junction Management (FJM) for S$80 million through subsidiary Topwin Investment Holding. In a filing to the Singapore Exchange, the food and beverage group said its wholly owned subsidiary Topwin had entered into a sale and purchase agreement on Aug 30 for the proposed acquisition of FJM from Food Junction Holdings. The total consideration of S$80 million will be paid in cash and will be funded through BreadTalk Group's internal resources - including available cash on hand - and debt facilities, according to the filing. The amount could be subject to further adjustments to take into account actual cash, debt and working capital of FJM as at completion of the acquisition. The figure was arrived at after "arms’ length negotiations", said BreadTalk Group in its filing.  It took into consideration factors such as the quality of the assets being acquired and the strategic value of FJM’s existing network of food courts and outlets to BreadTalk Group, as well as its financials, earnings quality and future potential. FJM and its wholly owned subsidiaries Food Junction Singapore and T&W Food Junction operate food courts and food and beverage outlets in Singapore and Malaysia. They collectively operate a network of 12 food courts in Singapore and three in Malaysia, with another one scheduled to open in Johor Bahru next year. BreadTalk Group operates food courts under the Food Republic and Food Opera brands across Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Cambodia and Thailand. As at Jun 30 this year, BreadTalk Group operates 14 food courts in Singapore and two in Malaysia.
