Miso Robotics has joined forces with sports and entertainment hospitality firm Levy on a new initiative that could see robotic kitchen assistants introduced in venues around the world.
Plans are in place to use Miso Robotics’ adaptable robotic kitchen assistants in sports and entertainment venues, helping staff at such facilities to serve fans in attendance.
The move comes after Levy last month opted to take part in Miso Robotics’ $10m (€8.1m/£7.2m) Series B funding, with both companies at the time agreeing to team up and will launch the first autonomous robotic kitchen assistant in a Levy-operated venue later this year.
Melissa Burghardt, chief operating officer of Miso Robotics, said: “Serving food in sports venues can be a more complex challenge than in fast food restaurants.
“Levy values the role our robotic kitchen assistants play in helping staff deliver faster, freshly prepared food and we’re excited to join forces with such a forward thinking partner to achieve our collective mission in improving consumers’ dining experiences.”
Andy Lansing, president and chief executive of Levy added: “We understand that our guests desire exceptional experiences and we’re committed to making sure each one we serve has the most memorable and frictionless dining experiences possible.
“What appealed to us most in partnering with Miso Robotics is our shared vision in changing the way food is prepared through advanced technology. Their platform will enable us to operate more efficiently, control waste, decrease wait times, enhance consistency and, most importantly, meet guests’ needs.”
