Jones the Grocer opens duplex store at Changi T2
Jones the Grocer has opened an artisan café, pizzeria, bar and restaurant at Changi Airport, Terminal 2. The iconic split-level duplex unit was developed in partnership with SSP Group. The expansion of the brand onto level three of the terminal follows the successful debut of the Jones the Grocer on the lower level in October last year.
Comprising over 6,600 square feet on two levels at Door 1 in the Departure Hall of Terminal 2, with proximity to the MRT and access to Jewel Mall, the space is designed to provide travelers with a comfortable and memorable gourmet dining experience.
The upper level boasts expert chefs who prepare Jones the Grocer’s modern, globally-influenced food for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a theatre kitchen, enabling travelers to see their food as it’s cooked. At the island bar, which offers sweeping views of the terminal, bar staff serve handcrafted cocktails and small bites. Customers can choose hand-thrown pizzas baked in a traditional Italian pizza oven. There is also a specially created "retail zone" that features hand-picked gourmet retail options.
Jonathan Robinson, Chief Executive Officer, SSP Asia Pacific said, “With our partners at Changi Airport Group and Jones the Grocer International we have created something truly special here at Changi, and this foodie hub is already proving very popular with travelers in Singapore. This latest venture is the next step in our ambitious plans for our Asian business in Singapore and beyond. Asia is a region that offers considerable scope for expansion, and with our understanding of the global traveling consumer and our very strong local team, we are well placed to make the best of this opportunity.”
Yunib Siddiqui, Chief Executive Officer of Jones the Grocer added, “It has been an exciting journey working alongside SSP to bring Jones the Grocer alive in this iconic duplex unit at Changi Airport’s Terminal 2. Grabbing a delicious quick bite or lingering upstairs over fantastic food and drink before checking in couldn’t be any easier. This opening also marks the first of many Jones stores and I look forward to introducing our fabulous food to travelling consumers across Asia.”
