Redditors applaud benefits & perks
In less than a day, the Reddit thread garnered over 1,400 reactions and 136 comments.
The OP later shared that the advertisement made them realise that what Takagi Ramen offers are ‘essential benefits’ that small and medium companies should offer employees.
They hoped that this could help increase awareness in the Singapore job market about what job seekers should expect.
Another Redditor pointed out how it’s amusing that among the bonuses, Takagi Ramen was offering free bubble tea and ramen to staff.
One netizen also said Takagi Ramen seems to be very caring towards their staff even as they continue to grow their business.
They went on to say that it shows that there’s no need to expand a business at the expense of workers’ mental and physical health.
Owner hopes to bring affordable, quality ramen to Singapore
Takagi Ramen Singapore was founded in 2015 by married couple Yang Kaiheng and Ai Takagi.
Prior to starting the ramen chain, the pair were editors of the now-defunct sociopolitical website The Real Singapore.
After the website closed, the couple went on to other ventures like Takagi Ramen which now has eight outlets in Singapore.
Their vision for the F&B chain is to bring authentic, quality ramen here at affordable prices.
The couple also runs the media company The Royal Singapore which publicises feel-good stories of ordinary people.
Yang previously told South China Morning Post he felt compelled to uplift Singaporeans with positive online content.
