Uggli Muffins to shut if successor not found by 10 Oct

The saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” rings particularly true for Uggli Muffins, whose uniquely-shaped bakes defy the traditional muffin appearance. Despite their unconventional look, they’ve garnered a reputation as some of the finest muffins in Singapore.

Regrettably, I’ve recently learned that the establishment is set to cease operations by 10 Oct 2023.

Uggli Muffins is located at Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre as well as their latest outlet at Jalan Besar. As a frequent visitor to the former (where I satisfy my carrot cake cravings at Chey Sua Carrot Cake), I’ve often witnessed a lengthy, winding queue forming outside Uggli Muffins.

Being my lazy self, I’ve continuously postponed the idea of trying their muffins, a promise yet to be fulfilled. Alas, it appears that I have less than 2 months before the possibility of it disappears.

You might wonder why I used the term “possibility.” It’s because Anton Tan, the 53-year-old owner, is still holding on to the hope of discovering a successor before the impending deadline.

A prominently-displayed notice on the wall outside the stall states: “Uggli Muffins will STOP operation after 10 Oct 2023 until a successor is found.

Anton says “I’m currently in search of 2 types of successors. The first would be a prominent figure with extensive experience in the F&B industry, capable of elevating the brand to new heights. Alternatively, we’re also open to individuals who are interested in managing the stall itself; in such a case, we would furnish them with our recipes, equipment, and operational procedures.”

I browsed through Uggli Muffins’ Facebook page and realised that Anton had already been searching as early as March this year.

Anton further shares with me that they have reached a stage that they either go big and open more outlets, or they close everything and go home.

To all devoted fans of their ugly-looking muffins, do head down to either one of the outlets and support them before the D date.

We at Sethlui sincerely hope that Anton finds someone to take over his business as soon as possible.
