Robots and Food Service Automation

When we hear the word “Automate or Automation”, it simply means to get things done from start to finish with little to no human direct input or support. In terms of food, it means getting food cooked and delivered to your doorstep through automation of the process (using robots).

Robots have existed for decades now but becoming more popular and valuable by the day in various and different aspects of life and business.

Food Service Automation

Robots are starting to play essential roles in restaurants and food service chain

While the idea may sound unrealistic or exaggerated to you, the truth is that the idea that robots and automation could soon be taking over the food service industry is not out of place. As a matter of fact, robots are already starting to play an important role and the young and tech-inclined population is excited by the possibilities.

The price of acquiring a robot is becoming cheaper by the day, as compared to the increasing value of the minimum wage, and the difficulties faced by those in the food industry to get cooks, waiters, and other employees. As a result of these, we are bound to see a rapid increase in the use of robots in the coming years.

There are several types of restaurant automation and robots. There are robots for making cocktails, flipping pizza, making the salad, flipping hamburger patties, delivering food/drinks to customers within the restaurant, delivering food/drinks to customers at their doorstep, and adding ingredients to soups, etc.

Functions of Food Delivery Robots

Food delivery robots are small, autonomous machines that carry meals from the point where it was cooked/prepared to the point where the customer is.

As there are different types of these machines, some are designed to function within the restaurant i.e taking food from the kitchen or drinks from the bar to a certain customer at table 15, while others are designed to operate outside of the restaurant i.e taking food/drinks from the restaurant to the doorstep of the customer (home meal delivery)

A typical robot costs between $5,500 and $15,000, depending on the amenities and design factor/operation of the robot.

Importance of Food delivery automation and the reason why food delivery robots are becoming popular

Bottom line: These robots are here to stay and are multiplying.

  1. It aids the labor shortages: As we all know many people who work in restaurants and some other food service sectors take it as a temporary job and most people still actively are searching for high-paying or green-collar jobs. This has led to a constant shortage of available workforce. With the use of robotic automation, labor shortages are solved
  2. Robots are faster
  3. Food is safer
  4. Autonomous food delivery is cheaper
  5. You can track robots
  6. They can talk with humans
  7. They are not a threat to customers

Examples of such robots include;

  1. Keenon Robot – indoor intelligent service robot
  2. Cecilia.ai — interactive robot bartender
  3. Smile Robotics— plates-collecting robot
  4. Miso Robotics — robotic kitchen for fast food chains
  5. Sally by Chowbotics — salad-making robot etc.
