Automation in the Food Service Industry

McDonalds food service automation is reaching new heights.

Most of us have seen the touch screens which allow us to order then move to the counter to pick it up when it is ready.

A McDonalds was opened in 2015 using robots that work up to 50 times faster than a human being. Just a few people are needed to keep the robots in check.

The Manager says “It’s great. They don’t argue or ask for cigarette breaks, there is better hygiene and less errors.”

I ask myself a simple question - Who is going to have the money to spend on fast food if they don’t have a job in the first place????
