Wing Zone to put robot chicken wing fryer in all new units
Fast casual chicken wing brand Wing Zone will install the autonomous robot chef called Flippy 2 into all future restaurant brands.
Flippy Wings is a robotic chicken wing fryer uses artificial intelligence (AI) and image recognition to identify the food items that need to be cooked once an order is placed. The autonomous robot chef can then pick up the food, cook it and place the food into a hot holding area.
This can free up back-of-house staff to focus on the preparation of other items and improving worker safety through the elimination of hot touch points and decreased oil spillage.
In addition to benefitting workers, Flippy Wings, created by Miso Robotics, could increase production speeds by 10-20%, the company said.
