While the entire hospitality industry is suffering from the corona pandemic, Seattle-based Picnic has reported a $ 16.3 million capital increase. With the pizza-making robot.
Pizza at the push of a button with the pizza robot
The startup Picnic has developed a pizza robot that is revolutionizing the kitchen industry. The pizza robot can produce up to 300 pizzas per hour. All the necessary ingredients are stored in the robot. And the best thing about the robot is: The pizzas can be filled as desired and according to customer requirements. With computer vision and deep learning technology, the pizza robot enables uniform production. In addition, less than 1% food waste is caused by efficient production! You can probably already imagine that the robot is not necessarily intended for private households. The robot is used, for example, in restaurants, schools, hospitals or football stadiums.
The pizza robot was only presented at the CES Technology Convention in Las Vegas in 2020 and already brings Picnic an equity investment of 16.3 million dollars. This investment already includes a $ 3 million investment from last fall.
