Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has announced the development of a further 15 locations in Singapore with Mavin Singh and his business partner Ang (Ding) Yen, who will open the 15 new units over a period of ten years. The brand is also celebrating its 80th anniversary.
Singh opened a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit ghost kitchen earlier in the year and met Ang (Ding) Yen while the two shared adjacent stalls in the same ghost kitchen in the central business district in Singapore.
“Barbecue is a unique delicacy and has been so well received here in Singapore,” said Singh.
“Our partnership is very exciting; we complement each other with our backgrounds and our determination and energy. The complementary skill set and growing friendship with both men and their wives is also key to the success of introducing barbecue to Singapore,” said Yen.
“We are thrilled to expand with Mavin and Ding further across Singapore,” said Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Capital Group.
“And we welcome Ding and his partner Geraldine alongside of Mavin and his spouse Jasmin.”
“We consider Singapore to be one of the gateways to Asia and I could not be more pleased with the partnership in Ding and Mavin to bring more barbecue to Singapore,” said Jim Perkins executive vice president of international development.
It’s been a strong year for Dickey’s with numerous international debuts and openings, with new locations in Sao Paulo, Japan and units planned for Botswana. Dickey’s has also been strong in its domestic U.S. market, and plans to open 48 locations across the Northeast over the next five years.
