Other than these three locations, Chef in Box machines can also be found in hotels, schools, industrial parks and offices.

House of Seafood is known for its chilli crab and black pepper crab. From one outlet in 2008, it now has three outlets around Singapore. At the Punggol Settlement branch, in addition to tucking into their award-winning crab, you can also purchase ready-to-eat vacuum-packed crab from a vending machine outside the outlet.
