Published: 18 Oct 2021

The Texas-style barbecue brand is proud to announce 15 additional locations opening in Singapore. Mavin Singh and his business partner Ang (Ding) Yen are opening the additional locations over 10 years.
The additional locations come after Mavin Singh opened a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Ghost Kitchen nine months ago, and he met Ang (Ding) Yen while the two shared adjacent stalls in the same ghost kitchen in the central business district in Singapore.
“Barbecue is a unique delicacy and has been so well received here in Singapore” says Singh.
“Our partnership is very exciting; we complement each other with our backgrounds and our determination and energy.” Says Yen. The complimentary skill set and growing friendship with both men and their wives is also key to the success of introducing barbecue to Singapore.
“We are thrilled to expand with Mavin and Ding further across Singapore” said Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey's Capital Group. “ And we welcome Ding and his partner Geraldine alongside of Mavin and his spouse Jasmine”
