SINGAPORE (Oct 8): No Signboard Holdings has secured an exclusive master franchise agreement with Haimarrow Food Service and HFS Global to develop and operate South Korean restaurant chain Mom’s Touch Chicken and Burger restaurants in Singapore and Malaysia.

Mom’s Touch set up its first store in 2004 in South Korea and now has more than 1,100 stores across South Korea and is established in the US, Taiwan and Vietnam.

The group aims to, on its own and/or find suitable sub-franchisees, launch eight Mom’s Touch restaurants across Singapore and Malaysia within the first three years of the agreement.

This agreement is in-line with the group’s long-term strategy to diversify its restaurant portfolio and provide its customers with a wider choice of quality cuisine.
