How Much Capital Has Miso Robotics Raised Towards the World’s First Autonomous Robotic Kitchen Assistant
Miso Robotics is the creator of Flippy, the world’s first autonomous robotic kitchen assistant. Considered for the kitchen of the future, Flippy is a robotic arm that uses AI technology to automate continuous operations to perfectly fry, grill, and serve food throughout the restaurant and prepared food industries. By adding Flippy to the kitchen, team members of restaurants can now focus more of their attention on other matters, such as customer service experiences, and properly assisting delivery partner drivers.
How much capital have Miso Robotics raised as of May 4, 2021
Currently, according to Miso Robotics, the company has raised exactly $21,691,814 towards the world’s first autonomous robotic kitchen assistant.
Miso Robotics started its crowdfunding project on April 7, 2020.
How much further in capital gain does Miso Robotics have to go to reach its goal?
As Miso Robotics has currently raised $21,291,814, their goal to operate as needed is $30,000,000. Based on the current amount of capital raised thus far, Miso Robotics needs $8,308,186 more to reach its goal.
With 9,111 investors, the average investment is $2,380.84. As the specifics of every investor of Flippy isn’t recognized through the Miso Robotics website, more than likely some investors have contributed a heck of a lot more than $2,380.84. And we surely do not want to discredit these investors. The minimum investment for anyone is $988. As some investors are minimalist, that’s totally fine, their investments are surely appreciated nonethless. However, those who contribute a certain figure above that mnimum are in fact appreciated a little more:
- $3,000 - $4,999 - 2 Miso Robotic hats
- $5,000 to $9,999 - 2 Miso Robotics hats and 4 free tickets to a regular-season LA Dodgers game
- $10,000 to $29,999 - 5 Miso Robotics hats and 4 free tickets to a regular-season LA Dodgers game
The appreciation goes on, all the way up to $100,000 + investments.
What is Flippy?
Flippy is a kitchen assistant robot that uses a cloud-based-connected AI platform to operate. It grills, fries, and serves food in a kitchen setting for over 100,000 hours continuous uptime.
The purpose of Flippy is to increase speed and efficiency while freeing up team members to focus more on customer service experiences, order accuracy, and handling delivery partner drivers properly as they arrive at the restaurant. It handles dangerous work in the kitchen, decreasing the number of grill and frying injuries (burns and scars) in the process.
Flippy is a robotic arm that can manipulate objects and tools in a kitchen. Very flexible, it can work multiple stations as needed. It can handle all heat variations in the kitchen while improving food quality by perfectly cooking foods according to settings. It removes hot oil, lifts and dumps baskets, it doesn’t slip and fall, and reduces food cross-contamination risks. It’s hard-working, efficient, and a representation of safe food practices in the kitchen.
How reliable is Flippy?
To ensure that Flippy doesn’t breakdown during wworking hours, engineers built a software system to monitor the autonomous robot continuously. This way, any minor problems that may arise can be taken care of immediately before they get out of hand. As of today, there haven’t been any complaints about Flippy conking out. However, there were some speed concerns reported while using Flippy.
A 2018 article released by the Washington Post revealed that Flippy was decommissioned for operating too slowly. At a Caliburger in the Pasadena location, Flippy failed to keep up with the restaurant’s demand. However, it was said that the autonomous robot was to be only temporarily decommissioned. This problem is minor. A timing calibration can fix this issue with ease.
In another article by the Internet of Business, Flippy was reported for working too fast for employees to keep up. The Caliburger holding company, Cali Group, stated that more time, training, and investment are needed for employees to keep up with the robot’s speed.

Will Flippy be the future of restaurants?
According to Flippy’s operations in 2018, it had some issues with its speed. Keeping up with or working too fastly for its employee counterparts definitely affects business flow, inconveniently putting workers in uncomfortable positions for efficient performances. Although Flippy’s beginnings were rough, those minor hiccups were easy to overcome with system adjustments and staff training.
Flippy can fry 19 foods. According to PCmag, “The next time you stop at the nearby drive-thru, your burger might be prepared by a robot.”
As of October 2020, Flippy is available for purchase to all restaurants. This robot is definitely a viable way to deal with coronavirus restrictions and concerns by customers. Flippy will cost restaurants an upfront cost of $30,000, plus a $1,500 monthly software fee. According to Business Insider, the demand is through the roof!
As an investor, the idea of an incredible opportunity to increase profits is exciting. As Miso Robotics gives us the opportunity to invest in their new project, Flippy, we as investors can be hopeful. With demand through the roof for this product in restaurants abroad, according to Business Insider, we can certainly have much confidence that our investment in Flippy would go to good use and grow, as we urge. With just $8,308,186 until the goal, after raising $21,291,814 following a crowdfunding campaign started on April 7, 2020, it is safe to conclude that Miso Robotics will get adequate funding needed to fully support the appetite of a demanding market for the trending robotic restaurant chef, Flippy.
