Domino’s isn’t the only popular pizza chain that intends to utilize new technologies to improve their business. As ZDNet reports, Little Caesars has acquired a patent for an “automated pizza assembly system” — or, as other outlets have put it, a pizza-making robot.
Little Caesars’ new patent breaks down its robotic system as a “robot including a stationary base and an articulating arm having a gripper attached to the end is operable to grip a pizza pan having pizza dough therein.” Before a finished product is produced, the robotic cook also takes the pizza pan through a “cheese spreading station” and “pepperoni applying station” for “properly-distributed” rations of pepperoni and cheese.
You can check out the example laid out in Little Caesars’ patent below.
