McDonald’s Pukekohe have recently successfully embraced the latest technology by introducing the innovative ‘Create Your Taste’, where you are able to build your very own burger from the bun up.

There are over 30 delicious ingredients to choose from, including five cheeses, jalapenos, guacamole and grilled mushrooms, along with a range of sauces. A bun-less burger option is also available.
The Post Newspaper caught up with Brian Baker, local owner and operator of McDonald’s Pukekohe, who exudes passion and enthusiasm for not only his store, but for his customers as well. Brian took the time to deal with customers on the floor and help his staff assist them with the new digital kiosks.
This same attitude and hands-on approach is presented through his staff, who were not only friendly, but efficient and service orientated. The new Create Your Taste has also served up 15 new employment opportunities at Pukekohe McDonalds, bringing a total of 70 staff employed at their restaurant.
Brian, and his wife, Brenda, have owned and operated the Pukekohe restaurant for 16 years, and say customers should expect a new and exciting dining experience with Create Your Taste.
“Not only can customers order at digital kiosks and have their meal delivered to their table, they can build their dream burger, exactly how they want it. It’s a step in a new direction and quite a different dining experience from what our customers will be used to at McDonald’s,” says Brian. Whether Kiwis want the iconic Big Mac and the fast convenience McDonald’s is famous for, or a gourmet burger in a relaxed dining environment, customers will now have more options than ever before.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
