Central Auckland foodie destination, Ponsonby Central, has launched home delivery to meet growing demand from people wanting a wide range of food delivered to their doors.
Ponsonby Central restaurants, including organic and free-range chicken restaurant, Bird On A Wire, and neighbouring hot spots, Miss Istanbul, The Dairy and El Sizzling Chorizo, have partnered with New Zealand’s largest online food delivery platform, Menulog, to offer an array of cuisine to its local community.
The popular eateries, located on Ponsonby Road, are among a growing number of restaurants across New Zealand – ranging from high-end bistros to takeaway chains – to join the online food delivery revolution.
Tina Plunkett from Ponsonby Central said its focus is on catering to its loyal local community and Menulog helps the restaurant hub take this to the next level by offering home delivery.
“Like us Menulog is also very community focussed and by partnering with them it means we can now service our local customers onsite and by delivering delicious food right to their door step,” she said.
Sophie Gilmour, owner of Bird On A Wire, said that home delivery has become an important part of their business and key to making this successful is ensuring home delivery is an easy and efficient process for customers.
“Our goal is to feed the world better food and part of that is recognising that people are sometimes too busy to cook. We want all people to have access to nutritious and delicious food that’s convenient – and not feel guilty if that means buying dinner.”
The Ponsonby Central restaurants join more than 800 restaurants across New Zealand offering online ordering and delivery via the Menulog app or menulog.co.nz.
Menulog NZ Commercial Director, Paul Dodds, said Ponsonby Central adds to the wide variety of cuisine it offers and reflects the demand from New Zealanders for a range of different cuisines alongside traditional takeaway favourites.
“From a customer point of view, there is now a huge variety of cuisine available so they can get almost any dish or type of food they want delivered to their door. The Ponsonby Central restaurants, which offer everything from delicious free-range chicken through to grilled cheese melts, are the perfect example of that diversity of food.”
