This Covid-19 Pandemic has increased the demand for drive-through restaurants due to social distancing. The sales in QSRs have surged from 70 per cent to 90 per cent. But the increased volume of customers and labor shortages had slowed down the average drive-through time by 29.8 seconds previous year.
Speed of delivery is one of the crucial factors to meet the efficiency and increase the sales in restaurants. The adaptation of automation and robotics would help to achieve that. Miso Robotics– a revolutionary startup reshaping the food industry with its intelligent automation, has announced its partnership with Lancer Worldwide – a leading brand in beverage dispensing- to build a smart, Energy-Efficient and automated beverage dispenser. This innovation would advance the commercial kitchen and can take them to the next level.
This recently developed automated beverage dispenser will connect with a point of sales system (POS). It would also offer a guided workflow for employees by syncing with driver and customer arrival times. When the order comes through the point of sales system, the connected approach reads the beverage requirements and drops the appropriate size cups onto the conveyor. It also fills the cup with the precise amount of ice and beverage and seals it with an air-tight drink seal. An air-tight drink seal is a brilliant measure to reduce waste, as millions of plastic beverage lids are disposed to the earth every year.
Jake Brewer, Chief Strategy Officer of Miso Robotics, said: “Lancer has a legacy of stand-out industry quality and shares in our vision for beverage innovation and futuristic design. Order fulfillment is a major factor for customer satisfaction and operators can’t afford to have a beverage left behind when a delivery driver or customer visits. We are extremely excited to create a product that will not only make the lives of those working in commercial kitchens better but will be a game-changer for the industry as a whole to deliver a world-class customer experience.”
Brad Davis, Director of Applied Technologies for Lancer Worldwide, said: “The quick-service brands we work with every day are well aware of what their challenges are – they know they need more efficiency, and they know there is new technology out there that could make it possible. Miso Robotics will help us bring all the right pieces together for an innovative design that makes automation, connectivity, and intelligence possible for operators. We are excited to collaborate with them to bring this concept to life, and into the hands of operators around the world.”
This brilliant Automated beverage dispenser arranges the beverage according to the order for easy pick-up. It reduces the waiting time of the customers to a greater extent. There is no doubt that this automated product of the innovative partnership would bring change in the food industry.
