White Castle from California is a burger chain that is testing a “robot cook” together with the company Miso Robotics. According to the fast food company, this is a test run – in a branch near Chicago – to use the robot named Flippy in the whole country if successful.

Tomorrow’s kitchen by Flippy?

White Castle Vice President of Shareholder Relations Jamie Richardson wondered months ago how to start thinking about tomorrow’s kitchens today. And spoke in general of a development that does not stop at fast food kitchens. This called Miso Robotics on the scene.

“Automation remains”

“I think automation will stay and this is the first example of a really big, credible ‘player’ to take this journey,” said Buck Jordan, CEO of Miso Robotics, of the new collaboration with White Castle.
