Our Team (Singapore)

ELDWIN CHUA, CEO

   

It was working part-time in seafood restaurants in his late teens that sparked 30-something Eldwin’s interest in the culinary world, particularly seafood. And this culminated in him taking the plunge to start his own restaurant at the tender age of 22. Despite his youth, Eldwin founded his restaurant on a strong foundation of offering delicious home-style dishes made with quality ingredients offered at good value. A decade on, this continues to be the linchpin of the Paradise Group business.

Even now with full-fledge kitchen teams headed by experienced executive chefs, Edwin is still very much hands-on bringing new dishes to the Paradise menu. Taking pride in providing quality cuisine with good value, Edwin takes seriously the comments that he receives and uses these to constantly improve the his menu and services.

Edwin was awarded the overall winner of 'The Entrepreneur of the Year 2011' by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (ASME) and Rotary Cub of Singapore.

 

EDLAN CHUA, COO

   

Edlan joined Paradise Group in 2006 when Seafood Paradise has grown appreciably and Taste Paradise was making its first foray into the restaurant scene. Despite not coming from culinary background, Edlan passionately took the challenge by learning as much as he could about the business, from the costing to people management and marketing. It is in this spirit that Edlan approaches his role, and as the leader, he is dedicated to instilling the company's value to his team.

With the right attitudes in place, he believes that Paradise has the potential to grow into an established brand while upholding its philosophy of quality food, good service and true value to Paradise's customers.
