Chowbotics is shifting the foodservice industry by automating menial tasks through the power of robotics with its first product, Sally the Robot. It is the world’s first fresh food bot serving customizable grain bowls, salads, snacks, and breakfast bowls and operates 24/7. Last week, the National Restaurant Association announced Sally the Robot has been awarded the 2019 Kitchen Innovation Awards. Plus, Chowbotics was named honoree in Fast Company’s The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies for the Robotics Sector. The award and honorable mention from these two highly reputable organizations push the Chowbotics brand and product forward in its mission to deliver fresh food to everyone, everywhere.
Sally the robot is gaining recognition for its innovation because it utilizes sophisticated robotics technology and algorithms to dispense accurate portions of hundreds of different ingredients with various sizes and weights.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the Kitchen Innovation Awards program defines the gold standard of foodservice equipment innovations. The fresh food bot was honored alongside veterans of the industry such as Hobart Corporation, Vollrath Company, and Welbilt Corp. and startups such as Bear Robotics amongst others for driving industry growth through automation, efficiency, safety, and sustainability. The KI Awards program judge panel consists of respected third-party experts from across the foodservice industry representing some of the most well-known brands such as Aramark, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, McDonald’s Corporation, Darden, and FoodStrategy, Inc. As part of the award, Sally the Robot will be featured in the Kitchen Innovations showroom at the National Restaurant Association Show May 18-21, 2019, in Chicago.
