About the company – 

Chef Robotics was founded by Rajat Bhageria in January  2019. It is based in San Francisco, Western US. The company intends to focus on automating the kitchen with AI and modern technology and reduce the cost of fresh food made.

Rajat came to this idea because there was a lack of workers who wanted to work in food services at the wages that are being offered. He believes that robots are the best solution for this problem.

“Chef is designed to mimic the flexibility of humans, allowing customers to handle thousands of different kinds of food using minimal hardware changes. The Chef does this using artificial intelligence that can learn how to handle more and more ingredients over time, and that also improves. This allows customers to do things like changing their menu often. Additionally, Chef’s modular architecture allows customers to quickly scale up just as they would be hiring more staff (but unlike humans, Chef always shows up on time and doesn’t need breaks).”  – CEO, Chef Robotics.
