New app for Christchurch foodies

New app for Christchurch foodies brings affordable dining options to the table


Christchurch has a vibrant and world class hospitality scene, but in a city that’s changing and growing rapidly it’s not always easy to find nearby and affordable places to eat.


AndUndr is a new app that brings together price, location and special offers in an easy-to-use package. Co-Founder, George Journeaux, found that it was hard to discover new but affordable places to eat out in Christchurch.


“We just wanted to be able to see everywhere we could get a decent bite for under $15!


“More needed to be done to help people like us discover and explore the city's newest restaurants and street food outlets in the price-range they could afford.”


Top of mind for Journeaux was also seeing local hospitality businesses struggling in the post-quake Christchurch market.


Many companies charge restaurants a percentage fee to advertise special deals, but Andundr deemed this inequitable for struggling restaurants. They are looking to disrupt the daily deals market by offering a free, self service platform for restaurants to advertise deals and vouchers on. The app and website are also free for users.


“We ultimately hope that AndUndr will provide a cost-effective solution for both consumers and the local industry” says Journeaux.

Coronavirus: On The Addiction To Chinese Student Fees, And A Possible Future For RNZ Concert

Last week, Australian PM Scott Morrison extended its ban on foreign visitors from or passing through from mainland China – including Chinese students - for a third week. New Zealand has dutifully followed suit, with our travel ban extending until next Monday at least, presumably dependent to some extent on what Morrison decides to do later this week.
Our universities are now asking for an exemption to the travel ban for their Chinese students, who would still, the universities assure us, be subjected to strict quarantine procedures upon arrival. Given how the inability of the university system to care for its own students on campus made world news last year, that promise may not do much to reduce the coronavirus fears among the wider New Zealand public.
