Launch of the first two productive coffee shops in Singapore, facilitated by SPRING and #HDB. Read:
1 Jointly facilitated by SPRING Singapore (SPRING) and the Housing & Development Board (HDB), the first two productive coffee shops by Koufu Pte Ltd (Koufu) and Chang Cheng Group Pte Ltd (Chang Cheng) were unveiled on 20 and 21 May 2017 respectively. These have been rolled out under the pilot tender system that encourages operators to innovate and transform from traditional formats into more efficient ones. With plans for the opening of other productive coffee shops in 2018, more residents can look forward to an enhanced dining experience in their neighbourhoods. This initiative is in line with the recommendations proposed under the Food Services Industry Transformation Map (ITM), which was launched in September 2016.
