“Cobots and robots may soon start doing many of the essential duties of fast food and other restaurant workers. Their contribution will change the nature of the 500,000 jobs the foodservice industry workforce expects to add this year and the 15.5 million jobs in the industry overall. The fast food sector offers many opportunities to leverage machine labor since common tasks such as frying are tedious and dangerous.
Fast food is the frontier for the integration of robotics into foodservice because it has the lowest prices for dining establishments. The rise in costs for food, gas and labor constantly motivate owners to find new ways to reduce expenses.One robotics engineering companies designing solutions that meet the needs of fast food restaurants is Miso Robotics, headquartered in Pasadena, Calif. Miso currently produces four robotic solutions: Flippy, a modular frying robot, Chippy, a frying and finishing robot, CookRight, AI-powered sensor systems, and Sippy, an automatic beverage dispenser.”
