Chipotle fighting back against labor shortage by bringing on chip-making robot – IOTW Report

BPR

Chipotle will soon be hiring an ideal new employee – one that will always show up for work on time, won’t complain about pay, and will never call in sick.

“Chippy,” a new robotic staff member, was created in partnership with Miso Robotics whose CEO Michael Bell said will help the already stressed workforce because “automation is the solution.”

“The restaurant industry had a labor gap before the pandemic,” Bell told  “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” on Friday. “The pandemic just accelerated this big gap between the number of jobs and the available labor.”

Bell explained that creating the tortilla chip-making robot was no easy undertaking and the mechanical chef is designed to make chips in a way that mirrors the subtle differences that you would find in human-made chips.
