California welcomes world’s first fully autonomous AI-powered restaurant
By Zoey Sky // Jan 02, 2024

The world's first fully autonomous restaurant controlled and operated by robots that prepare and serve the food has been officially launched in Pasadena, California.

The restaurant is CaliExpress by Flippy, derived from a partnership with Cali Group, a holding company that uses technology to transform the restaurant and retail industries. The collaboration also includes Miso Robotics, the creator of Flippy, the world's first AI-powered robotic fry station, and PopID, a technology company that simplifies ordering and transactions with biometrics.

CaliExpress by Flippy will use the most advanced systems in food technology, with both grill and fry stations fully automated and powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.

Restaurant guests can watch their food being cooked robotically after checking in with their PopID accounts on self-ordering kiosks to get personalized order recommendations. The PopID accounts can also be used to pay for orders It's a contactless facial recognition payment system that allows customers to pay for their items using just their faces.

The new CaliExpress by Flippy restaurant is located in Pasadena, California on the northwest corner of Green Street and Madison Avenue at 561 E. Green St. (Related: SMASHING the AI threat matrix – How human resistance defeats Skynet.)

AI-powered restaurant will still be run by a smaller crew of human workers

According to a press release, CaliExpress by Flippy will use these various technologies "to deliver freshly made burgers based on a wagyu blend at price points competitive with other premium burgers using standard meat."

The restaurant uses a unique grill robot that grinds high-quality beef in real-time after the order is placed, resulting in a burger patty that melts in the mouth.

Flippy, the robotic fry station, will then serve crispy, hot fries made from top-grade potatoes that are cooked for exact times. The menu is very simple and customers can order burgers, cheeseburgers and fries.

The CaliExpress by Flippy kitchen will still be run by a much smaller crew. The press release added that the smaller crew will receive above-average wages.

John Miller, CEO of PopID and board member of Miso Robotics, said that CaliExpress by Flippy "is the world's first operating restaurant where both ordering and every single cooking process are fully automated."

The combination of these different technologies to create the most autonomous restaurant in the world is the product of "years of research, development, and investment in a family of revolutionary companies."

The CaliExpress by Flippy location will also be a pseudo-museum experience presented by Miso Robotics.

The museum will feature dancing robot arms from retired Flippy units, experimental 3D-printed artifacts from past development, photographic displays and more exhibits. The CaliExpress by Flippy museum is designed to inspire the next generation of kitchen AI and automation entrepreneurs.

Other restaurants also using AI to create new menu items

Other restaurants are also experimenting with AI technology, with some using AI to design new menu options and flavors.

Some local restaurants are testing generative AI technology, and several establishments think their tests are exceeding expectations.

Greg Tierney, the owner of Motor City Pizza, a Detroit-style pizzeria in Lewisville, Texas, said AI has enhanced his menu. According to Tierney, one of his regular customers had an idea for a new pizza. The customer got the recipe from AI by using standard pizza ingredients, and then suggesting ideas like "Mexican street-corn pizza" to the AI.

Chat GPT then produced an initial recipe.

Tierney explained that the customer made several adjustments, such as making the recipe more savory and adding protein. The AI then produced the recipe for "Winston's Elote."

The Winston's Elote pizza is a blend of ingredients like chicken, jalapenos, onions, red peppers and roasted corn on a Detroit-style crust. The AI-developed pizza is then topped with queso fresco and cilantro, and drizzled with a tangy cream and hot sauce.

Tierney noted that Winston's Elote is now a permanent item on their menu and that customers love it.
