The world’s first restaurant where food is prepared by a robot is opened in San Francisco

Get ready to eat burgers made entirely by a robot. A new burger store in San Francisco has done away with people and is introducing a fully automated burger making machine.

The Creator robot looks like a miniaturized factory. It is constructed from a series of computers and sensors that collaborate to push the raw ingredients together to get a fully formed and cooked burger on the other side.

At a price of $6, Creator’s burgers are price competitive with the McDonald’s Big Mac. In part because it needs fewer kitchen staff and spends less on real estate costs as its smaller kitchen allows more space for foot traffic, Creator plans to allocate more than 40% of its revenue to the cost of ingredients. This means it can preserve an accessible price point without relying on cost-cutting measures more commonly seen in burger concepts, like utilizing factory-farmed meat.

Instead of already sliced buns there are fresh buns without preservatives. The robot toast each bun for 90 seconds. Usually, cooks do not have enough time or patience for this.

Tomatoes and onions are cut exactly when they need to be added to the dish. Therefore, they are always fresh and crunchy. This applies to cheese – it delicately melts on a fresh bun.

The founders of the restaurant plan to open a new restaurant outside San Francisco in the near future, including  small towns.
