Can you truly call yourself an Auckland of you haven't had a burger from The White Lady?

Auckland's best-loved and longest standing food truck, The White Lady turns 70! 

The Washer family began The White Lady in 1948, quickly cementing the tractor-driven food truck into Auckland folklore. Since then three generations of Washer's have flipped, shaken and served their way to the milestone of 70 years in business. (And they’ve NEVER missed a day in all those years).

To mark the occasion, an epic celebration is planned for 7pm this evening. Join us either in person or watch Seven Sharp as The White Lady is towed into position for the 25,567th time.

There’ll be balloons, live music, a motorbike guard of honour, a White Lady replica cake and a very special surprise at opening time. Don’t miss out on all the fun and free burgers!

And did you know The White Lady has a little sister? She's called "Connie" and you can find her in the container village on Queens Wharf. "Connie" for container or for Connie Clarkson, Panuku's resident foodie and White Lady super-fan, we'll let you decide…

"I'm a fan, a real fan of The White Lady and an ardent admirer of the Washer Family. As Panuku's Commercial Place Operations Manager I was very keen to see The White Lady set up shop on Queens Wharf when the opportunity arose."

Clarkson, together with Auckland Transport, have played a role in organising the birthday celebrations for The While Lady. “It’s been an honour to be associated with the Washer family over the years and it's a privilege to help celebrate their phenomenal achievement."

Here’s to 70 more years. Congratulations Washer family.
