Food Republic was founded on the concept of serving well-loved street food at affordable prices housed in the air-conditioned comfort of shopping malls. With the opening of its first flagship outlet in Singapore at Wisma Atria in 2005, the brand has revolutionised the food court scene in Singapore by being the first to introduce the quintessential thematic food atrium experience, bringing together the best of hawker and restaurant fare under a single roof. Promoting the appreciation of cultures and heritage in Asian cuisine, Food Republic continues to hand-pick reputable, dedicated hawkers to reflect the authentic taste that people love, while providing an immersive experience for all senses, which includes the ‘live’ cooking demonstration delivered through each stall’s open-kitchen concept.
Food Republic continues to grow its presence in the region, recording 53 outlets globally as at end 2017. In Singapore, there are currently 13 Food Republic outlets and 1 Food Opera.
