KANNUR – Gone are the days when customers had to look with disgust at the irritating mannerisms and unhygienic ways of waiters in restaurants. Now, it is the turn of robots to serve food. It is not a distant dream. In fact, ‘Be At Kiwizo’ hotel in Kannur, which is slated to be opened on Sunday, is all set to launch robots to serve customers.
“This is a first of its kind in Kerala,” said Vineeth M K, Managing Partner of BE@KIWIZO. It is also interesting to know that one of the partners of this venture is Maniyanpilla Raju, a well-known cine actor. “Apart from the curious element that food is being served by robots, everything else is same as in other hotels,” he said.
Once the order is placed, a tray with the food is placed on the hands of the robot. The robot starts from the station near the kitchen. As programmed accordingly, it goes straight to the particular table where food has to be served. Then it says ‘Sir, your food is ready’ and serves it.
Once the food is served, the customer has to touch a sensor behind the robot and it returns to its station. As of now, there are three five-feet tall ‘female’ robots named Aleena, Helen and Jane to serve customers.
BE@KIWIZO is subsidiary of Kiwizo App which is incorporated in Singapore and has the plan to expand its operations in major cities in Middle East and India.
