A company has started selling its pizza-making robot to restaurants. Now it has to convince chefs it’s worth the money.
Last week, Seattle-based Picnic announced that it’s now accepting pre-orders for its pizza-assembling robot. The announcement happened at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, an annual gathering of more than 13,000 pizza professionals.
The “Pizza System” consists of a collection of modules that dispense sauce, cheese, and toppings onto dough. According to a press release, the cost of leasing the machine “ranges from $3,500 to $5,000 per month including free installation and maintenance,” and that with the Pizza System, a single person can make up to 100 pizzas in an hour.
