The F&B industry is a tough nut to crack in Singapore, especially if you are looking to make it in the long run. Common factors attributing to many restaurant closures include rising labour costs, skyhigh rental rates, manpower issues, strong competition and many more – including the fickle tastebuds of us Singaporeans.
It’s sad for the SG Lifestyle Team to be putting together this round-up but nonetheless, let’s give a last show of support to the following F&B businesses who made it this far before bowing out for good.

Dear friends of JPOT, For the last 10 years, JPOT has proudly served quality Singapore-style hotpot to customers from all walks of life, and we are glad to have been a part of many happy celebrations and gatherings. It is with a heavy heart to make this announcement that JPOT will be closing its doors on Sunday, 16 June 2019. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our supporters for this past decade and thank everyone for being part of this memorable journey with JPOT. We had previously received many requests for a Mala soup option and so as a farewell special, our JPOT Team has created a new Mala Soup base for our customers to enjoy. The Mala Soup base is paired with a Vegetable and Mushroom Platter at only $8.80++ for an individual hotpot serving. At the same time, JUMBO Rewards members with a dining group of four or more persons at JPOT will exclusively receive a complimentary hand-made Jumbo Pork Ball to relish with their hotpot. For enquiries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM us. For queries relating to the JUMBO Rewards membership, please contact us at email@example.com or PM us. Thank you once again and we hope to see everyone again soon before we bid our final goodbye. Yours sincerely, JPOT Team

Dear fans and friends of GoroGoro Steamboat, thank you for your support the past 3 years and 3 months! We are sad to announce that we will not be renewing our lease with OGE and closing our doors on 14 July 2019. It was a difficult decision but it wasn't an easy feat to manage the rising operating costs, while ensuring that we offer the best quality food and service to you – our valued guests. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have dined with us and for all the wonderful memories at this big 6000sqf "ulu" space in Somerset since our first day of opening in Feb 2016. With that aside, we still have a good 2 months left, so do share this news with your family and friends! You may visit www.kingdomfood.sg or call us at 6385 7854 for reservation. We are located at Orchardgateway@emerald #04-01 S238851 😊 See you all soon!
It’s sorry to see you go, but thank you for the food and memories during their years of operations in Singapore!

On a brighter note, you never know if a miracle could happen and something similar to Kenny’s Rogers Roasters could happen.
Or if they would make a comeback – just like A&W Singapore after so many years!
Indeed, you never know 😉
More importantly, don’t say we NEVER share! 😎
