Menulog partners with Auckland Council to deliver great cuisine to Music and Movies in Parks

Menulog teams up with Auckland Council to dish up tasty samples at Movies in Parks and Music in Parks

For the second consecutive year, online food delivery service, Menulog, is partnering with Auckland Council to dish up some tasty samples of local cuisine and giveaway goodies and vouchers at the biggest free summer entertainment series, Movies in Parks and Music in Parks.

Following the popularity of Menulog’s life-size delivery robot at last year’s series, The Menubot will also return to help deliver food and take snaps with the crowd.

At each of the 13 free events Menulog is attending, the Menulog Voucher Blower will have thousands of discount vouchers ready to be snapped up by attendees. There will also be loads of giveaway goodies, including vouchers, air loungers, umbrellas and blankets, for those who download the Menulog app.

At the events, Menulog, New Zealand’s largest online food delivery service, will give hungry movie and concert-goers the chance to sample food from great local restaurants, including slices of pizza, Indian tasters and delicious dumplings.

Menulog's NZ Commercial Director, Rory Murphy, said: "With more than 500 Auckland restaurants on the Menulog platform our main aim is to help its local restaurant partners grow their businesses and ensure as many people as possible get to taste their delicious food.

“The beauty of Movies and Music in Parks is it goes to every corner of Auckland so it’s a great chance to spread the word about some of the city’s best neighbourhood restaurants and in some cases, the area’s best kept secret.

“There’s nothing better than sitting down to watch a movie and eating delicious food – it’s something everyone loves, and these events are the perfect opportunity for family and friends to get together and try something new or one of their local favourites."

The latest data from Menulog NZ shows Aucklanders favourite cuisine is Indian, taking up almost half of orders, however also in the top three were Thai and the ever-popular pizza.

At five of the Movies in Parks events, Menulog is introducing Delight Nights, delivering sweet treats to attendees once the movie has started.

Menulog Delight Nights will be at Kingswood Reserve on February 2 for The Greatest Showman, followed by Valentine’s Day movie La La Land at Nixon Park on February 14, Paddington 2 at Mairangi Bay Park on March 22, Christopher Robin at Milford Reserve on April 5, and finishing up at Henderson Park with Peter Rabbit on April 20.
