    Here robot makes burgers:

    Taste test: Burger robot startup Creator opens first restaurant
    $6 of algorithmic deliciousness

    Creator’s transparent burger robot doesn’t grind your brisket and chuck steak into a gourmet patty until you order it.

    When I ask how a startup launching one eatery at a time could become a $10 billion company, Creator co-founder and CEO Alex Vardakostas looks me dead in the eye and says, “the market is much bigger than that.”

    Eventually, an app will let people customize the exact ratios of all the ingredients, unlocking near infinite permutations.

    “This is the kind of burger you would get for $12 to $18 [at an upscale restaurant], and it’s $6,”

    the best at that price. A lot of that comes from the savings on labor and kitchen space afforded by a robot cook. “We spend more on our ingredients than any other burger restaurant.”

    In the meantime, other entrepreneurs have tried to find a business in food robots.

    The pizza kitchen with the Pizza Rax logo features two Universal Robotics robots and robotic robots from Robotiq. They are used to fill pizza, to bake and to give to the customer.
