Founding Partner Kristine Foo is in charge of curating and managing events at Famous Treasure and sister restaurant Famous Kitchen. She is also responsible for liquor procurement
Kristine Foo is a trailblazer.
Someone brimming with innovative ideas that challenge conventional, taken-for-granted, tired, yesterday’s norms.
“Kris”, as she is popularly known, is dedicated to giving the consumer a value-for-money, unexpected experience when they attend her events at Famous Treasure.
Founded in 2018 within Capitol Piazza, Famous Treasure grew out of Famous Kitchen which siblings Jeff and Jenny started. The restaurant is today located in Sembawang and was launched by the Foo Family and their friends back in 2009. Kris is the youngest child.
Just as with that first outlet, Famous Treasure brings together founding partners who are long-time friends.
From the very outset, Kristine Foo was charged with one particular responsibility. And has gone on to set a mighty high benchmark for events curation and management at Famous Treasure. Her expertise is the envy not just of the spirits industry but of events management companies.
The inaugural event with Malt & Wine Asia (whose founder Alex Yong is a founding partner of the restaurant), Famous Treasure sold some 200 bottles of Glendronach!!
“From the success of the pass and ongoing events in both restaurants, Famous has gained a reputation and established a very close knit relationship with brand owners including Edrington Singapore, William Grant & Son, Moët Hennessy Diageo, Pernod Ricard, Beam Suntory, Bacardi and Malt Wine Asia,” informed Kris during our interview at Famous Treasure.
Incidentally, the lady is also in charge of liquor procurement for both restaurants.
Friends and fans have been mighty impressed with how Kris has delivered quality cuisine, delicious matchings, excellent service, and a door gift bottle of whisky or cognac that is worth practically the entire cost of the dinner event.
“As a restaurant, we have already made a profit with the food. So, we want to give something back to our customers.”
It’s that loyalty that has resulted in satisfied customers returning to Famous Treasure again and again.
Kris Foo is not only innovative and trailblazing, she is also incredibly far-sighted.
