Robotics Drone Deliveries & Ghost Kitchens For Now Cuisine | Valdamark Direct

Robotic drones are the latest innovation in delivery services.

This intersection of robotics and technology has allowed for rapid advancement in delivery capabilities, with drones able to cover much larger distances in a much shorter period. Robotic drones can travel up to 11 miles per hour, unlocking new possibilities in deliveries. From food to mail, to medical supplies, robotic drone deliveries have been successful across a variety of industries and applications.  With high speed and accuracy, robotic drone deliveries offer convenience and reliability while opening opportunities within the industry.

Ghost kitchens are taking the restaurant industry by storm. These remote and automated eateries solely exist online, preparing foods without the need for customer-facing space of any kind. Robots are used to prepare food instead of humans, ensuring quality and speed in equal measure. Customers order via phone, tablet, or laptop with their payment details being processed electronically before delivery is accomplished with a fleet or partner driver. Ghost kitchens revolutionise how food is purchased, enabling customers to get their favourite meals easily and conveniently all with the use of advanced food preparation techniques.

Robotic Devices - Industry News

Chowbotics, the leading food automation technology provider, recently announced its acquisition by Door Dash - making this a truly ground-breaking development for food tech. By combining Chowbotics' advanced robotics to create cafeteria-grade meals at a fraction of the time – with Door Dash's extensive reach and logistics capability – customers across the nation will have access to delicious and efficient meals faster than ever before. This new merger signals an exciting step forward for convenient dining, with impacts that could extend far beyond just restaurants. With the combination of these two companies, it looks like an 'automated' culinary revolution is on the horizon!

White Castle restaurants are now utilising the latest technology with the hire of Miso Robotics devices as chefs in their burger kitchens. These robotic devices can perform tasks other than flipping burgers, including chopping vegetables and stirring fryers. This will enable White Castle to benefit from consistent quality experiences for customers and improved operating efficiency. It also increases food safety compliance, as the robots have been trained to meet hygiene requirements. Moreover, this type of technology can be implemented in different types of kitchen environments due to its incredible versatility. With this technological advancement, White Castle is truly pushing the boundaries of innovation in the restaurant industry.

Why the Need for Robotics in the Fast-Food Industry?

The food service industry is quickly recognising the value of robotics in streamlining processes and improving efficiency. With advancements in automation, robotics can speed up many labour-intensive tasks, allowing employees to focus their efforts on activities that require more critical thinking and customer engagement. Not only does this have tremendous operational benefits for restaurants, but it also provides numerous safety advantages.

Robotics can improve sanitation protocols by eliminating the need for manual cleaning and reducing the possibility of human error. Additionally, physical contact between customers and staff members is reduced, creating an environment that is healthier and more secure for both parties. The incorporation of robotics into the fast-food industry will be beneficial in many ways, making operations more efficient while enhancing customer satisfaction.
It has been reported that 42% of small business fast food chains are also looking to automate their kitchens due to job application shortages with no signs that this will improve.

A Case Study: Now Cuisine

One of the latest entrants into the automated food preparation space is Adam Lloyd Cohen at Now Cuisine. What makes Now Cuisine different is that unlike focusing on augmenting kitchen equipment, workflows and processes Cohen offers the business an innovative franchise model that focuses on robot-ready kiosks.

Capitalising on the shift towards off-premises dining away from dining rooms due to the pandemic Now Cuisines solution appears to be far more cost-effective for operators than teaming up with the numerous third-party delivery companies that have also rapidly increased in popularity. (Uber Eats, Door Dash, etc).

Cohen's theory is that with labour in such short supply and stubbornly high staff turnovers running a restaurant will continue to increase in cost making his proposal more attractive.

The use of robotics is inevitable and will only increase with time. Orders for robots in the food industry have increased over the past few years and are projected to grow even more in popularity. Some restaurants have already started using robots to deliver food and there are even robot chefs!

As technology advances and artificial intelligence becomes part of everyday life, we'll likely see even more advanced uses of robotics in the food industry - and beyond.
