Seattle-based Picnic unveiled what is said to be the first-of-its-kind intelligent end-to-end automated assembly platform for the foodservice industry.
The compact, freestanding system integrates Picnic’s modular, configurable equipment with its software, cloud and deep learning technology. The platform initially focuses on the production of high-volume, customizable pizzas, made with any kind of ingredients, consistently and sequentially, at a rate of up to 180 18-inch or 300 12-inch pizzas per hour.
Picnic’s platform is a culmination of production customization and throughput and smart back-end data and cloud analytics.
The platform only requires a small footprint and the modular, configurable equipment makes it flexible to slip into a wide array of stationary and mobile kitchen formats.
