Recently USA Today posted an article regarding a new robot that is being programmed to flip burgers. The report states how Caliburger was unable to keep long-term employees. CEO John Miller says that employees “Work on the grill, they realize that it’s not fun.. and so they leave to drive Ubers.”
The average wage for a fast food worker in Seattle (where a Caliburger is located) is $9.70 per hour. The average Uber driver in Seattle makes between $19 and $21 per hour before expenses with expenses ranging from $2.94 and $6.46 per hour meaning an uber drive makes around $3-8.00 more hourly than a fast food employee.
The robot costs between $60,000 to 100,000 for the Flippy that also cleans the oven, Flippy is also capable of flipping as many as 2,000 burgers a day. CEO of Miso Robotics created Flippy with the Cali Group, the owner of the Pasadena-based Caliburger chain.
John Miller mentions that he is looking to eventually have the robot in all 50 of his chain stores. Frux Home and Yard, a leading brand in quality kitchen oven gloves, understands the growing tech industry and supports the change as stated in their comment on Flippy the robot. “With the growing influence of tech in the food industry, we at frux embrace this new change and are eager to work with various tech industries to lend our expertise and success with food grade silicone from our top-rated, heat-resistant oven mitts.”
Frux Home and Yard added that “having a robot in the kitchen still means that protection is needed from grease splatter even if it’s protecting delicate machinery instead of hands and forearms.”
