Karakuri automates restaurant fry lines with new /FRYR Robot Family

Perfect fries will always be available to consumers thanks to a new automated fryline system unveiled by Karakuri, the company revolutionising quick service and fast casual restaurants with intelligent, robotic kitchen automation. Its /FRYR™ fry lines are intelligent, high-precision frying solutions that help restaurants save time and reduce waste while ensuring perfectly cooked fried food is available anytime.

The /FRYR210 system is the first in Karakuri’s range of automated fry lines. It combines robotics and real-time data analysis to provide restaurants with optimal fried food production of up to 130lbs/60kg of french fries per hour. Simultaneously, /FRYR210 improves food quality and consistency by ensuring the SOP is adhered to 100% of the time.

“Every restaurant knows that serving consistently great food keeps customers coming back for more,” said Barney Wragg, CEO and co-founder of Karakuri. “Our /FRYR automated fry lines are game changing for QSR and fast casual restaurants. They strike the perfect balance of food, people and intelligent automation, allowing restaurants to deliver expertly fried food with total consistency and availability, at a price point that works for their bottom line.”
