KUCHING: The Chicken Rice Shop (TCRS) plans to open up to 10 new restaurants, including two or three in Singapore, this year.

TCRS Restaurant Sdn Bhd managing director Gaik Wong said an outlet would be set up in Bangsar South next month and another in Muar in June.

“The setting up of the new outlets depends on the right locations. We are identifying such locations including in Sibu and Miri,’’ she told reporters at the TCRS restaurant in The Spring shopping mall here on Tuesday.

The Kuching outlet, TCRS’ first in Sarawak, celebrated its first anniversary by hosting a free luncheon for residents of the Salvation Army Boys’ Home and old folks from Rumah Seri Kenangan.

TCRS, which has a chain of 48 halal family restaurants, including one in Singapore, was founded by Gaik and her daughter Wong Kah Lin in 2000.

Gaik said TCRS served a variety of wholesome Malaysian dishes, such as authentic Hainanese chicken rice, curry laksa, assam fish and curry chicken.

She said that in view of the current economic slowdown, TCRS was giving a 20% discount on its meals to senior citizens (aged 60 and above) every Tuesday while pensioners and government servants get a 10% daily discount.

On TCRS’ plans to introduce its meals to other countries through a franchise programme, Gaik said the plan was on hold at the moment.
