Robotic pizza company Piestro has teamed up with sandwich chain Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop to pilot its autonomous pizza-making kiosk at Capriotti’s flagship location in Las Vegas.
Piestro is expanding its market position as customer demand for fast food production and delivery remains high as the hospitality industry continues to struggle with staff shortages and high costs, with robotics coming up with a solution to address such challenges.
“Piestro gives our customers a new menu category for late-night dining that we didn’t have before,” said Ashley Morris, general manager of Capriotti. “During these slower blocks of the day, the module can increase revenue without having to look for additional team members.
“We are optimistic that our first trial will be successful and expect Piestro to be an integral part of our future store layouts,” he said. The collaboration is the latest in a series of moves by Piestro, with the company earlier this month announcing its partnership with Serve Robotics to provide end-to-end robotic pizza services and saying it had received a $580 million pre-order. its an automated pizza kiosk.
