Miso was recently featured in QSR Magazine. “AI, Robots, and the Inventive Future of White Castle” explores how the fast-food industry is embracing cutting-edge technology to enhance their operations and elevate the customer experience.
At the forefront of this technological shift is Miso Robotics’ Flippy, an AI-powered frying robot that cooks food with precision and consistency. White Castle, one of the most iconic fast-food chains in the United States, has deployed Flippy in their kitchens with impressive results.
QSR discusses a whitepaper by Sharon Zackfia, an analyst at William Blair, on the potential return on investment (ROI) for Miso Robotics’ Flippy 2 and Flippy Lite. The robots are offered through a subscription model, with monthly fees starting at $3,000, which includes equipment, maintenance, service calls, and support. The subscription cost is fixed, making it suitable for high-volume restaurants with high average hourly pay, which can save on labor costs. The breakeven point is estimated at six to seven hours of labor per day at $15 per hour.
As the industry continues to evolve, companies like White Castle and Miso Robotics are setting the pace for innovation in fast-food. By embracing new technologies and automation, they’re not only enhancing the customer experience but also creating new job opportunities and a safer work environment for employees.
Miso Robotics’ Flippy is leading the charge in the food service industry’s technological shift, and their collaboration with White Castle and other national leaders highlights the immense potential of AI and robotics in revolutionizing fast-food.
