Artificial intelligence-powered robots developing company for the restaurant industry Miso Robotics partners with Americana Restaurants at Wimpy in Dubai Mall to deploy its Flippy 2 frying robots.
Americana Restaurants is a renowned F&B operator and master franchisee known for delivering famous worldwide brands to the Middle East and North Africa, such as KFC, Pizza Hut, Hardee’s, Krispy Kreme, and TGI Friday’s.
Miso Robotics claims that its Flippy 2 can accomplish the duty of a complete fry station on its own, streamlining operations in quick-service restaurants (QSRs). The robot has demonstrated its ability to optimize operations at QSRs and will be integrated and expanded across more Americana Restaurants locations in the coming months.
Melvin Michael, Brand Director of Wimpy, said, “Americana Restaurants’ partnership with Miso Robotics marks a significant milestone for the company as we continue to strive to address shifting customer behaviors and preferences through state-of-the-art, innovative solutions.”
He further added that as the first QSR operator in the MENA region to integrate robots in its kitchens, Americana Restaurants displays its dedication to providing consumers with new eating experiences at their most iconic brands. According to the company, Flippy 2 will provide a customizable robotic fry station to Wimpy’s kitchen, resulting in a reduction in order-to-delivery time, an increase in food uniformity, and a better working environment for human team members.
Mike Bell, CEO of Miso Robotics, said, “In the past year, we’ve announced partnerships with some of the largest brands in the U.S., and that momentum has led to us being pulled internationally to introduce our technology on a global scale.”
Recently, Bakery chain Panera Bread also started to deploy Miso Robotics’ new automated coffee brewing system, CookRight Coffee, at its outlets. The one-of-a-kind robot ensures a quality cup of coffee and a more efficient team member experience by monitoring indicators such as volume, temperature, and time data and combining it with predictive analytics.
