WE BUILD COMPACT, COLLABORATIVE ROBOTIC KITCHENS THAT CAN PREPARE A LARGE VARIETY OF RECIPES, ENABLING OUR ENTERPRISE CLIENTS TO OFFER PERSONALIZED COOKING CLOSE TO THE CONSUMER

YPC stands for Your Personal Chef. We build compact, collaborative robotic kitchens that can prepare a large variety of recipes, enabling our enterprise clients to offer personalized cooking close to the consumer. We leverage modern kitchen appliances and off-the-shelf robotics hardware with machine learning and mathematical process optimization (operations research, OR) to bring fast food efficiency to fresh cooking.

Our robotic kitchen can prepare tens of thousands of recipes. Meals can be cooked autonomously, but the plating is done by a human worker. Our kitchen cooks fresh, customized meals and decreases the cost of labor, rent, and food waste to boost our clients’ operating profits. As our systems are compact and work with a ventless hood, they can operate next to consumers in locations not suited for standard commercial kitchens, such as residential high rises or office buildings without kitchen infrastructure.

YPC is not an autonomous system. Rather than trying to automate all processes in a commercial kitchen, our system collaborates with human cooks. We let each side focus on what they are best at. While YPC takes care of highly repetitive and monotonous work, humans are assigned tasks that require dexterity and creativity, such as plating meals or creating new recipes and menus.

In doing so, we can increase the output efficiency of human kitchen workers by more than 300%. By improving labor productivity, reducing the cost of employee turnover, and minimizing food waste, YPC enables the fresh preparation of complex meals at maximum efficiency. As YPC enables touchless food preparation, our system can help to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and other illnesses.
