The backbone of this flourishing business group is Singapore’s leading figure in entertainment and hospitality – Joseph Ong. His career consisted of a series of errors and trials.

His story is truly inspiring. Noteworthy, he built this whole empire from scratch all by himself. Mr Ong did not come from a wealthy background: Joseph grew up in a 1-room flat.  The One Rochester Group project, which was started as an MBA project, has grown into a $25m collection of lifestyle F&B establishments. Furthermore, Joseph has become software MNC Symantec’s youngest vice president for Asia-Pacific and Japan in 2013 at the age of 41.

Following his success, Joseph Ong wrote a book, Remote-Entrepreneurship. It outlines a novel approach to management where there is collective leadership and a remote owner.

Thus, his reputation as a big authority in this dangerous shark-business was not just granted to him. He has achieved through hard work and high-quality service.

We have created a list of 3 best One-Group venues, which you should definitely visit:
