Located in Naperville, Illinois, at Route 59 and Ogden Ave, the AI-based robotic kitchen, says the company, can create dishes from any cuisine around the world, using authentic recipes from celebrated chefs. The flagship restaurant is expected to be the first step in transforming the food service industry with AI-powered service, addressing many of the issues affecting restaurant owners during COVID-19 by providing a variety of cuisines without potential contamination from human contact.
"We are eager to see our years of hard work put into action this April," says Vijay Kodali, the company's Chief Technology Officer. "We expect Nala to be one of the biggest game-changers in restaurant automation — emerging as the 'go to' technology and methodology for years to come."
Using the company's proprietary hardware and software, each order placed to the robotic chef is created precisely as requested, ensuring every customer receives their food customized to their preferences and dietary requirements. Modifications like "Easy on Spices," "No Salt," "Allergic to Peanuts," or "Keto Specific Ingredients" are guaranteed to be fulfilled by the AI-driven restaurant, simply by placing an order through the Nala App says the company.
For their debut, the company will offer the menus of 10 restaurants in one: The robotic kitchen is a pizza parlor, burger joint, and chicken wing shack all at once. In addition, international cuisines will be on offer: Italian, Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, and Portuguese. Thanks to the AI-controlled robotic chef, says the company, each dish can be cooked to perfection, with the recipes of celebrity chefs from around the world.
"Nala is the culmination of our years of research to bring a chef's passionate culinary creations to life and customize it for every connoisseur's taste using robotics and Artificial Intelligence," says Ajay Sunkara, the company's President. "Our Naperville food court is first of many locations that we plan to launch all over world."
