Denny’s opened its doors in New Zealand in 1988 in Manukau City. Today, there are currently 7 stores in New Zealand situated in Highland Park, Manukau City, Wairau Park, Auckland City and New Lynn in Auckland; Christchurch and Porirua, all owned by Rappongi Excursions Ltd. There are plans to open more restaurants throughout the country so more and more people can get to know and love the Denny’s experience.
Denny’s New Zealand strives to provide the highest level of guest satisfaction and value for money at any of our full service restaurants. We endeavor to do this with courteous and attentive service, quality food products, and a clean environment, in any of our warm and friendly family restaurants.
Harold Butler and Richard Jezak opened a donut stand in 1953 and called it Danny’s Donuts Lakewood, California. Butler’s stated promise was “To serve the best cup of coffee, make the best donuts, give the best service, offer the best value and stay open 24 hours a day.”
That single donut stand from the 50’s is now a restaurant chain with a slightly different name and a proven reputation for keeping Mr. Butler’s original promise. Currently there are more than 1700 restaurants worldwide.
