Navia Robotics and Nuwa Robotics, developers of service cobotics, have announced a partnership to deliver AI robotic solutions for restaurants, aiming to revolutionise the foodservice industry.

The collaboration aims to enhance operational efficiency and profit margins for restaurants by integrating advanced robotic technologies into their daily operations.

The partnership is a strategic response to increasing labour costs in the foodservice sector, with California’s legislation AB1228 setting the minimum wage for fast food workers at $20.00 per hour.

By deploying restaurant robots, the two companies aim to help businesses navigate these financial pressures.

Navia Robotics specialises in AI-driven service robots capable of performing tasks ranging from food delivery to cleaning.

Its robots are designed to fit seamlessly into restaurant workflows, supporting staff and elevating the customer experience.

Nuwa Robotics brings to the table interactive humanoid robots that engage with customers through AI, taking orders and providing menu information with a personal touch.

Together, Navia Robotics and Nuwa Robotics will develop integrated systems combining advanced navigation with interactive AI.

These solutions are expected to optimise restaurant operations by automating routine tasks, allowing staff to concentrate on activities that add more value to the customer experience.

The introduction of robot models such as Navia’s Collibot and Nuwa’s Kebbi is anticipated to enhance customer service by offering timely and personalised attention, a crucial aspect of the dining experience.

The partnership will focus on joint research and development to continually advance service robotics technology for the foodservice industry.

The two companies are committed to providing robust and reliable AI robotic solutions for restaurants, with the potential to significantly reduce operational costs and improve profit margins.

Navia Robotics chief technology officer Peter Kim said: “We are excited to partner with Nuwa Robotics at a time when the restaurant industry is seeking innovative solutions to counter rising labour and material costs.

“Together, we can provide robotic systems that not only improve efficiency but also enhance the dining experience for customers.”

Nuwa Robotics chairman Leo Guo said: “This partnership represents a significant advancement in the deployment of serving robot models in the food service industry.

“By combining our interactive AI technology with Navia’s deployment expertise, we can offer comprehensive solutions that address both operational challenges and customer engagement specific to the needs of local businesses.”
