Automation should be designed to accommodate kitchens, not the other way around.
At Caldo, we’re passionate about making automation accessible to any kitchen in the world - be it for a single task or handling a full menu from start to finish.

The US foodservice industry is facing the worst labor shortage in recorded history with ~1.5 million unfilled jobs. Operators are in dire need of technology that can help maximize the productivity of every set of hands available.

We believe that empowering kitchen workers with purpose-built robotics is the way to do it.

Your Kitchen + Our Tech

We’ve developed a platform of turnkey robotic kitchen assistants that handle a wide range of tasks
Our robotic systems require only 7 sqft. of tabletop space. Every system is completely turnkey and requires zero construction.

Just place the system, plug it in, and go.
No kitchen re-build. No downtime.
Our modular design and proprietary ingredient handling technology allows our system to control many cuisine types with ingredients of varying material properties - in other words, our systems aren't limited to just bowls or salads.
In addition to freeing up hundreds of labor hours, our systems reduce food waste, improve portioning accuracy, and collect unit-level data to support supply chain management.

Customers & Partners

Restaurant Kitchens
We’ve developed systems to help high-volume QSR and fast casual operations to automate select tasks (e.g. portioning and packaging of ingredients and sauces) as well as more complex assignments (e.g. full meal assembly automation).
Off-Premise Foodservice
Our systems can support foodservice operations at grocery stores, corporate campuses, airports, and hospitals with assembly of large batches of grab-and-go meals.
Commissary &
Ghost Kitchens
Given the high concentration of workers in these large format kitchens, we've found a natural fit for our technology when it comes to augmenting kitchen productivity per available staff member.

Can I put a system in my kitchen today?

We have a pre-order waitlist that's growing fast. Connect with our team to define which of our automation products fits best for your operation and add your name to the list today!

How would automation impact my business?

Kitchen operators see immediate improvements in product consistency, presentation, staff productivity, food waste, training and turnover costs, and supply chain management.

Customers are happier, employees are happier, and operators are happier.
In short, it's a win, win, win.

What would working with Caldo look like?

Our systems are offered as a Robotics-as-a-Service subscription.

A subscription to our service includes: access to our hardware and software, installation, training, routine maintenance, remote support, and system upgrades.

Our success is tied to the success of our customers, so we work hand-in-hand with operators to uncover inconspicuous tasks that quietly eat up labor, produce product inconsistencies, and cause significant amounts of food waste.
