Watch out Burger King, a robot-run burger restaurant is opening in the South of Market area of San Francisco.
According to a Craigslist job posting looking for a restaurant manager to lead the robo-dining experience, “this location will feature the world-premiere of our proprietary and remarkable new advances in technology that enable the automatic creation of impossibly delicious burgers at prices everyone can afford.”
The robo-restaurant manager will still take customers’ orders, schedule shifts, and occasionally take out the trash and tidy up. As an added bonus, managers can learn skills like software troubleshooting, market research, and product development research.
The burger-making robots, invented by Momentum Machines in 2012, can customize every aspect of the burger, from thickness and cook time to condiments. Some critics worry that the robots may put a lot of people out of work. But Momentum Machines says jobs will be created by providing opportunities in restaurant management and technology development.
