Botswana Butchery Auckland's First Birthday


Botswana Butchery Auckland celebrated their first Birthday this past weekend with a milestone lunch for their loyal food followers.

The Queenstown based company behind the restaurant, Good Group Hospitality, are thrilled with the success of the restaurant which boasts a steady lunch and dinner trade, seven days a week.

"Business continues to go from strength to strength at Botswana Butchery Auckland. We've seen more than 50,000 people go through the door since it opened last year which is a testament to the popularity and quality of the restaurant. What is particularly pleasing is the high level of repeat customers including a good amount of corporate clients from the local business area", says Good Group CEO Russell Gray.

The chef behind Botswana Butchery Auckland, Executive Chef Stuart Rogan, has finely tuned the menu over the past 12 months to suit a broad patronage. The menu continues to reflect seasonal local produce and changes regularly while always retaining the popular signature dishes such as Spanish style whiebait, whole shoulder of New Zealand lamb and Peking duck.

The onsite team at Botswana Butchery Auckland is led by General Manager Kieran Turnbull who has been with the restaurant since it's inception. The team also include four full time managers, wine sommelier Piers Haszard and a 20-strong kitchen, bar and floor team.

Mr Gray says "the early success of Botswana Butchery Auckland gave us the confidence to acquire Harbourside restaurant and we are currently embarking upon a major refurbishment to create a new premium seafood Harbourside restaurant. We are going to deliver a truly special dining precinct in the magnificent Ferry Building with opening set for July."

Good Group Hospitality own and operate premium hospitality operations across New Zealand, with a portfolio consisting of 11 businesses in Queenstown, Christchurch and Auckland.
