DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself
30/M/SG, likes movies, interested to know… #ikid
I do like scurrying around for good food, paired with great conversations (like curry to my roti or sambal to my stingray).
Fish Sh-nack was a hobby that became a “not-such-a-hobby” hobby, it now has a brick-mortar (named DOCO) that sells our famous Donburi Series, which will soon be featuring its second outlet!
Check it out DOCO, International Plaza, 10 Anson Road #01-16 Singapore 079903. Anyway, if you’re a food and convo person, hit me up; Nine0four99Ninetwenty-six.
D: What is your vision/mission for your company?
Our Mission is to ensure that customers get the bang for their buck!
We focus a lot on customer service, we generally feel that as companies grow bigger, they tend to lack the customer relationship component. We however try to ensure that we use the customer-to-friend approach!
Aside from being competitively priced, we do constant quality checks on our food, I.e. Serving portions, quality of the products basically making sure what is the usual, stays the usual.
Vision, to promote the use of Fish Skin in all applications of food, increasing brand awareness and seeing our customers smile as they scuff down our products!
