Robot fry cooks are likely coming soon to a White Castle near you.

Flippy 2, a robotic arm created by Miso Robotics that is able to operate the fast food restaurants’ fryer stations, will be implemented in 100 standalone White Castle restaurants across the country soon.

This accounts for just under one-third of White Castle locations nationwide.

According to a press release announcing the move, Flippy 2 completes food prep twice as fast as a human employee, and fries 30% more food at a time.

White Castle initially partnered with Miso in 2020, when it launched a pilot Flippy program to test its efficacy within the burger chain.

“Our partnership with Miso continues to lead the way on what’s next for back-of-house restaurant operations looking to empower team members with technology to better satisfy customers,” Jeff Carper, Chief Operating officer of White Castle, said in a press release. “Having Flippy 2 be a new hire at 100 of our White Castle locations keeps us on a path to achieve big goals at White Castle.”
