NEW YORK (Reuters) – Starbucks Corp’s newest cafe lacks one element most customers are used to seeing: cashiers.
The global coffee chain on Thursday opened its first ever location in partnership with Amazon Go, the e-commerce giant’s brick-and-mortar convenience store, where customers can sit at a table with a latte or grab a sandwich from a shelf and walk out.
Hit by a U.S. labor crunch, Starbucks and other companies are expanding labor-saving technology like artificial intelligence, robotics and digital touch screens.
White Castle is testing a robotic fry cook and Domino’s Pizza Inc is experimenting with self-driving vehicles for delivery. IBM is developing automated order taking for McDonald’s Corp drive-thrus.
