Automation Replacing Staff at Restaurants


SEOUL, Dec. 19 (Korea Bizwire)Genesis BBQ Co., a major South Korean fried chicken chain, opened a new ‘smart store’ in Seoul’s Songpa District on December 6.

There are no employees to take orders at the store. Instead, there are tablet PCs on each table that are used to order food.

The food made in the kitchen is then served by food bots, self-driving robots that deliver the food to the customers.

A map of the store is programmed into the food bots, which deliver food to each table based on pre-mapped destinations included in the program.
