The streets of South Korea – where fried chicken is very popular – are full of restaurants serving this quick meal, but Kang Ji Young’s restaurant adopts a different method of preparation than others, as it entrusted the task to robots.
Enter Kang, a 38-year-old entrepreneur, saw an opportunity to improve the way fried chicken is prepared in South Korea.
“The market is huge,” she told Agence France-Presse from her restaurant, “Robert Chicken,” noting that chicken strips are one of the most requested foods in delivery operations in South Korea, and the sector will certainly benefit if it adopts greater automation.” To address the problem of labor shortage.
Kang’s robot, which consists simply of a flexible mechanical arm, is capable of frying 100 chicken strips in two hours, a task that requires about five people and a large number of large frying pans.
The robot not only speeds up the process of frying chicken, but also provides tastier chicken pieces, according to Kang, who added: “We can now say that our robot frys chicken better than what humans do.”
Entrepreneur Enter Kang currently has 15 chicken restaurants that use robots to prepare her dishes in South Korea, and one restaurant in Singapore.
