Third-generation owner of The White Lady shows behind the scenes of Auckland's longest-running food truck

For more than seven decades The White Lady has been a staple of downtown Auckland. 

From 7pm every night, the food truck sits dutifully in its position on Commerce St where it serves hot burgers and fries to hungry patrons. 

The White Lady was opened in 1948 by Brian Washer and has since been passed down three generations. The business is now in the hands of Brian's grandson, Max Washer. 

Since the demand for food trucks increased in recent years, Max has expanded the business and introduced two new trucks that cater for events across the city.

Although The White Lady has come a long way since its humble beginnings, the owners admit they won’t be straying from the original recipes that their customers have grown to love. 

"The great thing about our business is that if we changed anything, people would hate us for it," Max laughs. 

"Like a lot of sons, I never wanted to become my father but I find myself slowly becoming my dad and the older I get, the more and more proud I am of that."
