Back in ya box, Ctd

Now these nostalgic TV ads really got me thinking. See Labour’s Kris Fa’afoi just loved McDonalds. No wonder as McDonalds opened their first New Zealand restaurant in Porirua. Yet again we have seen a Labour MP caught out lying.

Sadly I couldn’t see Kris Fa’foi in this TV ad using this McDonalds as his family playground.

    The first McDonalds was at Browns Bay.

    Over the years they moved the story to write it out of history completely.

    It was opened by Wally Morris of Shoprite – it was less than successful and he regrouped with his brother Hugh and other investors and the Porirua store was opened.
    Even in the 1980’s a display at Porirua acknowledged that Porirua was not the first but you had to read it carefully.

    I know this is a minor issue but it annoys me that some companies will lie even when it is of no great consequence.

      Crikey – Shoprite, that sure is a name from the past!

    Was working in Porirua when the 1st McDonalds was opened. Not too many customers with brown skins to start with. Run by an Ex Cop who was very successful. Family playground. He must be joking!!! No playing around there. Remember it was the start of the fast food revolution. Your order delivered in 1 minute. So kids-keep out of the way!!!
