Neil Humphreys, posted the following photo about Buddy Hoagies, a 12-year-old cafe in Nee Soon South Community Club that will cease operation due to lease not renewed.

This is what he said in the facebook post:

What do you think of this?

There’s a popular, family-run cafe, which I’ve really liked in the past, called Buddy Hoagies cafe and grill. It’s at Nee Soon South CC and produces a healthy menu at a reasonable price for Nee Soon residents.
It’s been there for 12 years.
But the owners just found out the CC property management agent would not be renewing the tender. They were given ONE MONTH to leave(they had to plead with their MP to get a month’s extension).
And what is taking their place?

Well, the rumour is … KFC!

Because I was just thinking how we needed to see another local, popular family-run eatery moved out so another American fast food franchise could move in.

There’s nothing like rewarding local enterprise and supporting healthy food options for heartlanders.

And this is nothing like that.

Sad really, isn’t it?

This is what the closure notice read:

CLOSURE NOTICE

TO ALL OUR LOYAL AND VALUED PATRONS

It is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that Buddy Hoagies Cafe & Grill will cease its operations permanently at Nee Soon South Community Club as our lease has not been renewed in favour of a new tenant. Our last day of operations here is 15 June 2016 (Wed).

It has been a great privilege being part of this community for the last 12 years. We wish to thank you for your continued support, patience and friendships, without which, our business would not have been a success.

We hope to see you at out other outlets at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre (#B1-05) and Punggol Waterway Point (#02-22). Please visit our website at www.buddyhoagies.com.sg for any updates on relocation details.

However, that’s not exactly the full story.

Based on what Humphreys wrote, it is understood that the cafe was not only forced out after being given a short one-month notice, the next establishment to take over their place could possibly be a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet:
