Expo Attendees Will Experience Pizza Made by A System Producing 300 Pies an Hour Using AI, Cloud, Automation Tech and Robotics-as-a-Service
Seattle-based Picnic, an innovator of food production technology and Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) solutions, will demonstrate the first-of-its-kind intelligent end-to-end automated assembly platform for the food service and hospitality industries. Picnic welcomes International Pizza Expo attendees to visit their booth and experience firsthand the high quality and consistently made custom pizza produced by the system, at a rate of up to 300 12″ pizzas an hour.
The freestanding system integrates issued U.S. patent and other U.S. and international patent-pending modular, configurable equipment with its software, cloud and deep learning technology. Flexible and only requiring a small footprint, the system easily slips into a wide array of stationary and mobile kitchen formats, and brings unrivaled capabilities in production customization and throughput; smart back-end data and cloud analytics; and its ability to continually learn and meet the changing needs of food service operators, protect their brands and elevate customers’ overall experience with food.
