Food to go (2nd of 2)

Food to go

International fast-food chains such as McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut are now found throughout New Zealand. One local version (albeit with an American name) is Burger Wisconsin, a small chain of hamburger bars that was started up in Wellington in 1988. The traditional takeaway meals of fish and chips and meat pies are also still popular.
