Are you ready to get a taste of the iconic Pon De Ring doughnut? Don’t miss the opening of Mister Donut on May 21 at Bishan’s Junction 8 Mall!
The long wait is finally over. This May, Singapore will welcome Japan’s biggest doughnut chain, Mister Donut, offering a menu of 20 classic and locally inspired options, including the unique Pon de Ring mochi doughnut flavor that is exclusive to the chain.
It can be recalled that in July 2022, when Mister Donut launched a pop-up store at Jurong Point shopping center, Singaporeans swarmed over the place—some even queued for up to five hours—to satisfy their cravings. In just a month, RE&S, who ran the pop-up sold 83,000 doughnuts!
This time, RE&S Enterprises formally adds Mister Donut to their list of restaurants and brands that serve Japanese cuisine, including Ichiban Boshi, Kuriya Dining, and Shimbashi Soba. The long-term goal of the local food and beverage company is to open at least nine stores in the next three years—one of which is planned to be a large-format café around Singapore.
Here’s What to Look Forward to with Mister Donut’s Opening in Singapore
On May 21, expect an overwhelming fluffy treat from Mister Donut. Aside from the mochi-like Pon de Ring doughnut, they will also serve a variety of sweets that are made from imported Japanese flour, cream custard, and doughnut coating.
On its opening, bundle purchases will be made available, like $14 for six doughnuts and $23 for 10. This is your opportunity to get a hold of the Custard Strawberry French Cruller doughnut, Golden Chocolate ring, Honey Dip doughnut, and the Singapore-exclusive Strawberry Chocolate doughnut—all priced between $2.30 and $2.50.
Providing equal opportunity to all Singaporeans who are fond of Mister Donut’s sweet treats, customers are only allowed to purchase up to 10 doughnuts and no more than four Pon de Ring doughnuts.
By far, Mister Donut has more than 900 stores across Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia since it started in the US in 1955, after founder Harry Winouker broke off his partnership with his brother-in-law and Dunkin’ Donuts founder, Bill Rosenberg. The brand was first introduced in Japan in 1971, and since then it has become one of the largest doughnut chains in the world.
