Take a byte out of robotic pizza

Smart data, cloud analytics and a great sauce
“This is one robot that won’t be a CES exhibitor only showing futuristic concepts; it is already in use in real-world kitchen settings and will only continue to grow in its capabilities,” says Clayton Wood, CEO of Picnic. The robot’s pilot mission was at another Centerplate location, T-Mobile Park, home of the Seattle Mariners.
