Robots that slice, grill, assemble and bag 400 burgers in one hour are set to invade California.

Momentum Machines unveiled its autonomous grill master in 2012 and recently announced it will be opening a robot-powered burger bar in San Francisco’s South of Market.

Although this machine can do the work of three humans, the startup is still hiring people to perform other tasks such as payroll and taking out the garbage.

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS OF THE ROBOT-POWERED BURGER BAR? 

According to Momentum Machines job posting on Craigslists, the startup plans to open its restaurant at 680 Folsom street in San Francisco California. 

The burgers will be fresh-ground and grilled to order. 

Customers can specify what type of meat mixture they want and build their own burger. 

Humans will be employeed at the facility but for other tasks such as payroll and taking out the garbage.

The Craiglist posting shares specific characteristics the firm is looking for in human workers: autonomous, conscientious, autodidactic and service orientated –the word robot does not show up once in the Craigslist post.

With the minimum wage increasing in parts of the US, the idea of hiring a staff of robots may be a way to combat costs.

Former McDonald’s USA CEO Ed Rensi has said it would be cheaper to hire robots to replace the company’s staff than to pay them the $15 minimum wage that many are demanding in protests across the country.

‘It’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging french fries,’ Rensi told Fox Business Tuesday.

One comment on “Robo Burger Makers Coming to California

  1. For almost any business, labor is one of the highest, if not THE highest cost. Most people who have never owned or operated a business are ignorant of how much they cost their employer. It’s more than merely wages though that is a big part of it. We all saw what happened to jobs because of the higher costs of labor imposed by Obamacare. Yet people remain willfully ignorant. The ones most affected are at the bottom, with the least skills, the least experience…the least productive…and increasingly the least opportunities to change any of that.

    Can’t blame business owners for trying to protect their investment and business and stay IN business, feed their own families, etc.
