The interfaces can be grouped into 5 major categories as shown in the example below.
The joint team behind KitchenFlow has over 10 years experience in restaurant technology, with key involvement in developing the KDS solution of McDonald’s, and has been winning restaurant tech innovation awards since 2014.
We believe that the only way to deliver transformative operational efficiency in restaurants is to tackle the core processes that inevitably involve the kitchen. We are building a future-proof, scalable KDS platform that allows easy extension and integration via open APIs. We are re-architecting the data flows of the restaurant to put the centre of gravity into the kitchen instead of the POS. With this paradigm shift, the POS system is just one of a number of order data sources for kitchen-based central orchestration solution.
Our vision is to optimize processes and quality in all industrial kitchens, leveraging state-of-the-art technologies.
We see a future in which most kitchen operations are fully automated, serving futuristic delivery and dine-in workflows. Delivery will likely evolve into a quality assured self-service journey of order-by-phone, deliver-by-drone, while for dine-in will likely focus more on the experience around the meal, rather than the meal itself. In such a technologized future, KitchenFlow aims to be the coordinator of automated kitchen processing stations.
We deliver automation and control to improve throughput, service time and order accuracy in high volume kitchens.
We achieve this via our self-monitoring kitchen operations system that extends the coverage of the production and preparation steps, using tailored interfaces, machine vision, AI and collaborative robots.
At present the solution is in public preview, with exclusive deployment within Nando’s. General availability will follow in early 2024.
In the mean-time, the team behind the solution, is available for consultancy work related to:
