JPOT at Tampines 1 will close its doors permanently on Sunday, June 16.

Last outlet to close

JPOT, a hotpot restaurant owned by the Jumbo Group of Restaurants is best known for their Singapore-style hotpot.

According to The Straits Times, the restaurant chain opened their first outlet at VivoCity in 2009, before expanding to Tampines 1 in August 2012, and subsequently to Parkway Parade in 2014.

All restaurants but the one in Tampines have closed since. JPOT’s Parkway Parade outlet closed in August 2017, while its Vivocity outlet closed in July 2018.

In a heartfelt Facebook post, JPOT thanked its supporters for being part of its memorable journey over the past decade.

“We are glad to have been a part of many happy celebrations and gatherings,” wrote the hotpot restaurant.

Many of their fans were inconsolable.
