Double the Kitchen Output,
Half the Labour
Jasen is an automated grill designed to replace the grill section in a commercial kitchen and can cook in excess of 300 steaks or other proteins per service including chicken, pork, lamb, sturdy fish the limit is up to the chef's imagination.
Being fully automated the product aims to reduce labour by one or more chefs per service providing much-needed relief for understaffed kitchens and delivering massive labour savings.
Jasen has 16 individual sous vide baths, to cook up to 16 different precise temperatures and timings allowing for rare - well-done steaks or other proteins and a robotic arm that sears the steak on a traditional grill.
Commercial kitchens across the world are screaming out for chefs.
There are more food operations than ever before, yet fewer new chefs coming through the ranks. It is rare to find a kitchen that is fully staffed.
Working as a chef is hard work, being constantly uderstaffed is harder. In understaffed kitchens, chefs get stressed and over-worked, which leads to staff turnover and inconsistency in the kitchen, ultimately leading to lost customers and high wage bills.
Kitchintel is here to help. We exist to solve the problem of chronically understaffed kitchens, by automating and semi-automating complex kitchen processes.
We are Raising Capital
See how you can get involved in our upcoming capital raise
Jasen by Kitchintel has been designed as a collaboration between an Executive Chef and a process automation specialist. The aim is to reduce labour as well as increase speed and consistency during service.
Manufacturers drawings have been created and vetted by electrical and mechanical engineers. We are in discussions with two universtites to produce the proto-type and have a provisional patent in place. Market validation has been sought from a casino, a large stadium, function centres and pub / hotel chains. We are currently pre-revenue. We are raising capital to fund the prototype and inital production. Once the prototype is produced it will be placed into the kitchen of one of our target clients with an imbedded staff member to document how it can replace the current process.
Kitchintel exists to solve one problem. The chronic understaffing of commercial kitchens. We will do this by automating and semi-automating complex commercial kitchen processes
With our intitial capital raise we intend to have the prototype produced and operational in a key target client kitchen. We will embed a staff member with the machine to work with the venue to maximise the machines utility and deliver the promise of reducing labour. Once the machine has been thoroughly tested we will create production schematics, software programming for integration with point of sale and commence production. Our vision is to target North America, Europe and Australia. We have commenced discussions with manufactures in Australia and North America to produce the machine.
Across North America, Europe and Australia food venue operators are reporting staff shortages and are struggling to hire chefs and cooks. Industry insiders see this challenge persisting as market expansion exceeds workforce growth.
The demand for restaurant automation technology is on the rise. In the last 3 years US based companies in this space have raised over $600 million in the with SoftBank and Khosla Ventures investing in Zume, Bear Robotics, and Cafe X, all robotics start ups for the hospitality industry. While most of the new technology is focused on fully automating very simple kitchen procedures, Kitchintel sees an opportunity working alongside chefs in a more realistic and complex kitchen environment.
