We’ve come a long way since the mid-1900s, when the dining options available to New Zealanders largely consisted of meat, three veg and tomato sauce at the nearest hotel. Now we’re overwhelmed by choice. So, as technology continues to change the way we dine, what will it look like in 2030?
The rise of fast-casual dining is having an influence on some of the most well known fast food restaurant chains in the business – most recently, fried chicken giant KFC.
