First Song Fa restaurant in Beijing
Meanwhile, BreadTalk Group and their joint venture partner Song Fa Holdings just launched their first Song Fa restaurant in Beijing.

The new site can accommodate 100 customers and is said to feature a blend of Nanyang nostalgia decor and contemporary style seating.

“Since the opening of our first Song Fa outlet in Shanghai last year, we were encouraged and overwhelmed by the positive response from consumers in China. This vote of confidence enabled us to open another three restaurants successfully in Shanghai last year,” BreadTalk Group CEO Henry Chu said.

“With the opening of our first restaurant in Beijing, we will continue to harness and leverage on BreadTalk Group’s brand operations and management experience to bring the Song Fa brand to northern China and provide local consumers with high quality Teochew Bak Kut Teh cuisine,” he added.
