Studies have been conducted to examine the recent increase in the implementation of robotic automation in foodservice. These studies conclude that serving robots do exist currently, primarily in countries outside of the United States. In addition, studies suggest that customers have a better customer service experience with serving robots if they go into the interaction with a positive perception. Therefore, the implementation of robotic automation in the foodservice industry will possibly continue to be implemented in countries where it has not yet currently been brought to the markets.
