If you think restaurants are incorporating a lot of technology into their businesses lately, we can guarantee a new San Francisco restaurant has them beat.
A start-up restaurant named has officially opened its first location. The new restaurant is all technology, meaning customers have zero human interaction during their entire experience.
The non-human experience includes ordering and paying on tablets. After ordering, the customer picks up their food at one of the multiple glass cubbies, which displays the customer’s name. The cubby opens by pressing a button.
Co-founder of Eatsa Tim Young told Chain Store Age that Eatsa is a different kind of fast food.
"Eatsa is reinventing fast food by combining the speed and affordability of fast food with the delicious flavors and nutritious ingredients of premium fast casual," Young said. "By developing new technology to automate every aspect of the food experience, we are able to deliver a product with the best qualities of premium fast casual at a price point that is accessible to everyone."
If you think this is a cool concept and want to try it out, there’s one requirement: you must like quinoa. All of the menu options have quinoa as an ingredient, but customizing your order is a possibility.
We don’t know if this is the restaurant of the future, but we think it shows some of the endless possibilities investing in technology can lead to.
