SingaporeÂ will no longer hear â€œhi, welcome to Chiliâ€™sâ€ as of this week, because the American casual restaurant chain breathed its last on March 24. In whatÂ appearedÂ to be an abrupt announcement yesterday, the brand put up a Facebook post informing customers it had shuttered all its outlets on the island the day before.
The short online farewell thanked guests for â€œall the great moments and memoriesâ€ over the past 10 years, eliciting sad reacts from netizens who seemed to really enjoy the burgers, steak, and enchiladas there.
If youâ€™re a fickle foodie, you probably havenâ€™t stepped into a Chiliâ€™s in years, seeing as how weâ€™ve got plenty of other (dare we say, better) options in Singapore. But unfortunately for loyal fans of the eatery, if you didnâ€™t get a chance to say goodbye to its Tanglin Mall, Resorts World Sentosa, and Clarke Quay Central branches, itâ€™s too late now.
At least it lasted an entire decade, which is more than we can say forÂ other international F&B concepts thatâ€™ve tried and failed to make their mark on the tough dining scene in Singapore.
