Quick Service Restaurants are facing labor shortages and are resorting to excessively raising wages and compensations to keep their stores afloat. The average wage of production and nonsupervisory employees has risen sharply, reaching an average of $19, far exceeding the minimum wage. As a result, the profit margin of QSRs, which had already been low, is dropping steeply.
Our intelligent robotic kitchen is fundamentally and cost-effectively solving this problem by supplying restaurants faced with a shortage of manpower with the required labor. Additionally, with the robotic kitchen doing the demanding and dangerous work in the kitchen, even elderly workers can be actively hired for the remaining tasks like refilling ingredients.
(FACTS) – Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), which account for more than a third of restaurants in the US, have increased by 40% over the past 20 years. However, the fast food industry, which has considerably relied on teenagers for its entry-level jobs with minimum hourly wages, is now finding a shortage of labor. The supply of young workers is decreasing, and the reasons are as follows: lower fertility rates and the pursuit of high-salary jobs due to increased emphasis on education. This eventually cascaded to 1.5 million unfilled job openings at restaurants and hotels, double the number a year earlier.
