Korean Foodtech startup Robo Arete is set to give New York the taste of its unique Korean fried chicken made by robots. Robo Arete was founded in 2018 to innovate the food culture and the overall F&B business with robotics technology.
Robo Arete boasts innovative, unique, next-gen advanced solutions that can cook more than 50 chickens per hour, cutting labor costs in half. The company is scheduled to open a flagship store in Manhattan in July this year.
Robo Arete owns six Robert Chicken in Seoul, popular among local food lovers. Robo Arete wants to bring Korean specialties and traditional foods to the USA.
Robo Arete’s technology innovates the cooking process with robotics and allows anyone to open a store with an automated kitchen, drastically reducing labor costs. The startup’s goal is to enable robots to cook fried food and all kinds of food. “We are also developing technology that allows robots to make decisions and cook personalized menu orders through our software platform by combining various technologies such as sensors and visions,” the company states.
Robo Arete’s robotic fryer can take on the breading, battering and marinating process and frying. A single person can operate a restaurant with Robert Chicken’s system. With success in Korea, Robert Chicken hopes to bring change in the US F&B market. The company plans to introduce its technology to global F&B franchises like McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King.
