Responses to last week's
story on congestion
outside Fergburger on
Shotover St all supported
the big burger business.
Without brands like Shotover Jet,
AJ Hackett Bungy and now
Fergburger, Queenstown would
only be half the place it is
today.When you have the Irish
rugby captain mentioning in front
of 20 million viewers after an All
Black game that he will return to
New Zealand again, not to play
rugby but to visit Fergburger, this
is priceless for the town.
Fergburger should be given
awards. I would say a gold medal
for what it has done for
Queenstown in the past few years
by giving it a new fresh icon for
overseas people to recommend.
You sit on a beach in Bali mention
Queenstown to the person beside
you and BOOM the home of
Fergburger comes out of their
mouth. Five stars to Ferg.

Tribute to contributors
What a bunch of complainers
Queenstowners are with silly
articles like this. Tourists
absolutely love the Fergburger
experience and the vibe and
people queuing is part of the
experience. If it s too hard to get
past there is always the other side
of the road. Without
entrepreneurial operations like
this we would be a boring town
with no character.
Why are they all flocking there?
Because it is fun, not to mention it
probably employs more than 50
people. Who else contributes to
Queenstown employment like that
apart from the big corporates? I
don t even eat Fergburger but
think it is an excellent addition to
the Queenstown experience and
we would be lost without it.
So instead of complaining Jody
and the other writer too scared to
sign your name, maybe start
thinking about how you could
create a successful business that
contributes to Queenstown.
Love at first bite
Now I have heard it all! How does a
successful business such as
Fergburger go about changing
this? Maybe by not being so
successful; is this what these
people want? Because this is what
it will take to curb the people from
being on the side walk. I am
certain the staff should and will do
their best to keep the path clear
but in the food industry there are
obvious peak times when business
needs to take care of business and
I believe Jody and others could
easily walk another way or use
something called manners. Try
asking people to step aside as I
have done myself with never an
issue. As for the shop owner com-
plaint, jealousy comes to mind. I
bet they all wish they had devel-
oped such a Queenstown icon.
Good on you Ferg. QT loves you.
