It will serve customers across North Shore, Central, West Auckland, East Auckland and Drury.

According to the news agency, the food delivery platform has already partnered with major restaurant brands such as McDonald’s, KFC, Tank Juice and Hell Pizza.

The company is also said to have partnered with a few local restaurant brands, including Pizza Club, Chicking, Sumthin Dumplin, Daily Bread, Duck Island, Tiger Burger and Wise Boys.
