Open-a-fast-food-in-SingaporeThe food and beverages industry is currently one of the most prosperous branches of the tourism sector in Singapore, which is why many enterprisers open food businesses in the city-state. Among the most successful are cafes, restaurants, bars, and during the last few years, fast foods. The most important reason why foreign investors have turned their attention towards setting up fast foods in Singapore is the lower amount of money required for this type of company. However, the licensing requirements are very strict like for any other food business in Singapore.

If you want to open a Singapore company in the food industry, our company registration experts can assist you.

Below, businessmen can find out more details on how to set up a fast food in Singapore

First steps when starting a Singapore fast food business

Foreign investors must have an entrepreneur pass in order to be allowed to register any type of business in Singapore. Once this step is completed, one must register the company with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) and then start looking for the suitable premises for the fast food. This step is very important as the authorities will first verify the location which must respect the Environmental Public Health Law’s requirements. Based on the same legislation, the Singapore fast food will obtain its food shop license.

Our Singapore company formation agents can offer more information about the laws related to starting a fast food business in the Republic.

Applying for a food shop license in Singapore

The food shop license is the most important license which grants the right to operate a fast food business in Singapore.  The following documents are required when applying for a food shop license when opening a fast food in Singapore:

  • -          copies after the owner’s identity card or passport;
  • -          a detailed plan of the location’s layout;
  • -          the tenancy contract for the premises;
  • -          approval for the location from the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Building and Construction Authority or other authorities;
  • -          a management plan for food safety.

It is also important to know that the employees of the Singapore fast food must have specific qualifications and a list with their names must be provided to the National Environment Agency. The fast food must also appoint a food hygiene officer.

Other licenses for fast food business in Singapore

It is important to know that apart from the food shop license, a company registered in Singapore with the purpose for running a fast food business, may also apply for one of the following permits, provided that it will offer the following products:

  • -          a liquor license;
  • -          a halal food license;
  • -          a license to import foodstuff.
