The kitchen of the future starts with our robotic chef, “Flippy,” which has cooked 60k lbs of fried food and 12k burgers. We’re developing technology to assist and empower chefs to make food consistently and perfectly, at prices everyone can afford.
We engineered this robotic chef to cook food perfectly and consistently alongside chefs in commercial kitchens using computer and thermal vision.
In 2020 Flippy got an upgrade as Miso introduced the Robot on a Rail (ROAR), which mounts Flippy upside-down on an overhead rail. This allows Flippy to move along a line of kitchen equipment and remain out of the path of busy cooks.
Solving the Labor Problem
The $273B global Quick Service Restaurant industry has tight margins (~5%) due to rising wages and a worsening labor shortage.
"Miso can offer Flippys to fast food restaurant owners for an estimated $2,000 per month on a subscription basis...A human doing the same job costs $4,000 to $10,000 and up per month, depending on a restaurant's hours and the local minimum wage." - LA Times
With Flippy, restaurants can increase profit margins from 5% to 14%, which translates into a 3x increase in EBITDA.
After success with its pilot in CaliBurger’s Pasadena, CA location, the restaurant recently signed an $11 million purchase order to implement two Flippy bots at each of its 50+ locations worldwide.
White Castle, America's first burger chain, recently entered into an agreement with Miso to develop, pilot, and undertake a beta rollout of ROAR for White Castle's North American restaurants. The pilot will launch at a location in the Midwest in Q4 2020.
Miso has also signed partnership agreements with PopID to enable contactless payments and temperature screenings, with PathSpot Technologies to integrate their sanitizing scanning technology, and with TimePayment to offer low to zero-interest financing to customers.
Miso Robotics is poised to increase efficiency, profitability and food quality for the entire restaurant industry and bring us closer to the kitchen of the future.
