Case Study on Jumbo Group Limited (SGX: 42R)

JUMBO Group Limited began with the inception of JUMBO Seafood, a Singapore-style seafood restaurant, in 1987. Best known for its chilli and black pepper crabs, the company has evolved over the years and now offers multiple diverse Asian dining experiences, serving more than 6,000 diners daily. From a single seafood restaurant, the company has grown to over 20 restaurants in Singapore, China and Japan. They currently offer a wide array of dining concepts catering to the discerning palates of local and overseas gastronomes. Company’s statistic is as of 3rd October 2018.

With JUMBO opening its first franchised Jumbo Seafood Restaurant in FuZhou, marking its 7th restaurant in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and its 15th restaurant across Asia, the Group is continuously exploring suitable opportunities to expand its network of F&B outlets and businesses through opening of new outlets and strategic alliances with partners who can strengthen market position and add value to its existing business.

In their recent announcement for Q3 FY 2018 performance, JUMBO's revenue increases 2.9% to $35.8 million mainly due to China operations - contributed by two new outlets in Beijing and Shanghai and opening of Xi'an outlet.

The Group's Q3 FY2018 results reflect the gestation period of its expansions, locally and regionally as they continue to focus on cost efficiency and improving work flow processes to increase productivity.
