If you’re a food lover like myself, it’s likely that you would have heard about Jumbo Group Ltd (SGX: 42R), the company that runs the Jumbo Seafood chain of seafood restaurants in Singapore that are famous for the chili crab dish.

The company, which is relatively new in Singapore’s stock market given that it was listed less than a year ago on November 2015, may also have caught the attention of investors given its great stock market performance – its current share price of S$0.59 is 136% higher than the listing price of S$0.25.

Here’s an overview of the Jumbo business to help investors understand the company better:

1. The food & beverage brands

As already mentioned, Jumbo Group has the Jumbo Seafood restaurants under its belt. But that’s not all.

The company also has Chui Huay Lim Teochew Cuisine (restaurant that focuses on authentic Teochew cuisine), JPot (hotpot restaurant outlet), Ng Ah SIo Bak Kut Teh (chain of outlets serving pork-based soups), JCafe (an eatery serving Singapore street food), and Singapore Seafood Republic (food & beverage outlet serving Singapore-style seafood dishes).

2. Jumbo Group’s history

Today, Jumbo has 16 food & beverage outlets in Singapore and three outlets in China. How did Jumbo become the company it is today? Here’s a short-summary of its milestones:

3. Jumbo’s financials

Any overview of a company is never complete without some basic numbers. So here you go.

Jumbo sells more than 1.6 tons of crab per day; over 6,800 diners patronise its restaurants and outlets daily; it has an employee headcount of around 940 right now.
