Royal HD and Sojitz formed a strategic partnership with a capital and business tie-up on February 15, 2021. As part of this partnership, Royal HD and Sojitz are taking on overseas expansion with a new store opening in the global business hub of Singapore, which has information and networks regarding trends in the food business, making it an ideal base to work on identifying growth businesses.

Jewel Changi Airport is a large-scale shopping center, which is connected to Singapore Changi Airport and known as a global hub with more than 58.9 million annual visitors (as of 2023). The Royal Host Singapore Jewel store will be the very first Royal Host in Singapore, and the restaurant will serve a broad menu of Royal Host’s classic Western-style dishes such as French onion soup, rice gratin, and hamburger steak. Royal Host has 50 years of experience in Japan during which time it developed its own Western-style menu in-house. Part of this menu will now be developed and customized to create an original menu for the Singapore store. Royal Host’s signature dishes are characterized by special sauces and other ingredients that are carefully prepared by the central kitchen in Japan, and these ingredients will be exported to Singapore to ensure the same meticulous flavor as in Japan.

Royal Host will provide the same delicious quality, omotenashi spirit, and comfortable dining spaces to customers outside Japan to make Royal Host a global restaurant beloved by people in regions around the world. With the opening of Royal Host’s first directly managed store overseas in Jewel Changi Airport, Royal Host strives to introduce the Royal Host brand to customers on a global scale and increase Royal Host’s fan base.
