Dean was born and bred in Christchurch, moving to Whangarei in 2014. A petrol head, who is now a proud owner of his very own purple BurgerFuel machine, a ‘70 Oldsmobile Cutlass. The Cutlass keeps his ’75 Mini Clubman company, a lingering bone of contention for the new franchisee, “I was told that on no uncertain terms could I paint my mini purple”.
When he can sneak in some time off, you can find Dean taking a walk up Parahaki Hill or dining at the family’s favourite spot Suk Jai, a local Thai restaurant that serves up phenomenal food with loads of personality in their front of house.
Pop in to BurgerFuel Whangarei and meet Dean and the crew and check out their fresh new store. Though you’ll note Dean will be conspicuous by his absence on UFC Sundays.
