Creator, a burger experience! With a Start-to-finish fully automated preparation process to create their gourmet burgers. They soft launched June 2018 in San Francisco, offering customers their first taste of what may just be the future of fast food. At Creator’s heart is a robot kitchen which automatically creates gourmet burgers using haute cuisine techniques of alums from Michelin-starred restaurants including Chez Panisse and Momofuku who worked closely with roboticists from Disney Imagineering, NASA, and Tesla to create it. The result is a burger so precise and gourmet, it can’t practically be made by hand. In fact, they call their burger the freshest burger on the market! For example the beef in the patty doesn’t get ground until after the order is placed. Even the tomatoes, pickles, and onions are sliced crisp to order, buns are sliced in half after the order is placed and the cheese is grated directly onto the bun before it’s melted. Sauce is dispensed down to the milliliter and seasoning is dispensed down to the gram. Creator is located in the San Francisco SOMA district at 680 Folsom Street. read more
