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.

The high walls of US and Chinese tariffs built in recent years will largely remain intact, and few economists are predicting the deal will significantly boost the growth prospects for a slowing US economy. As the New York Times noted this morning, the likes of New Zealand will still face the trade barriers imposed by the Trump administration during the recent rounds of fighting. More>>
