2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period.
Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.
Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
The past few days have been filled with a string of bad news. With the closure of popular patisserie Antoinette and seafood restaurant The Pelican, there can’t possibly be anything else worse, right? Sadly, we are wrong.
The Fabulous Baker is the next dining establishment to announce its closure and their last day will be on 11 July 2020.
This year hasn’t been a good one for anyone, and the F&B industry in Singapore is one of the hardest-hit sectors. This has caused many well-loved eateries to close their doors.
Joining the other eateries that have shut down in Singapore is The Pelican, which will officially cease operations on 30 June 2020.
COVID-19 has left Singapore’s F&B industry in a catastrophic mess, especially after dining out was banned during the Circuit Breaker period. Eateries have been struggling to make ends meet and despite many of them still allowing takeaway or delivery, it is not always enough.
So, it isn’t surprising that a number of these dining establishments have had to shut their doors and leave Singapore’s F&B industry. Over the past few months, we’ve heard of the closing of a number of reputable restaurants across our little red dot and it is truly heartbreaking.
Just recently, there have been rumours that Stärker Group has become one of the next casualties of the pandemic. Are these, however, true? We will find out by 10 June 2020.
