TFS (The French Stall) is closing in June - your last chance!

Postby PNGMK » Wed, 08 Jun 2016 5:24 pm

The 3 star chef is shutting it down (not selling). This has been our no 1 choice for excellent French Cuisine for a few years. It's on Serangoon Road. Go and experience before it's too late.

It would seem so... http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/sin ... 34874.html

This was before the days of hipster cafes and alfresco dining. Today, faced with high rental costs and a labour crunch in the F&B industry, the game has changed since Mr Le Henaff first started.

“In France, 15 years they say, ‘Oh the guy has just opened the restaurant’. Here they say, ‘Woah he’s still around?” Mr Le Henaff said, referring to the transient nature of restaurants in Singapore.

Staffing cost increases I can believe, but haven't rental rates come down at least over the past couple years?

Not yet in commercial spaces... plus idiot Landlords here like to wipe out successful tenants.

From what the paper (linked by SE) says, looks like the current business is not profitable enough (too much competition) and he is going to move to the high end.

I'll be interested to hear what tenant (if any) replaces TFS. If somebody could report back in a few months (let's say), that'd be an interesting report.
