From HospitalityTech Oct2020 —
Here in the US there have been a few concepts using self-service ordering kiosks and pickup cubbies. Pioneers in the US space include Brightloom, formerly eatsa, and Little Caesars Pizza’s self-service mobile order pick-up station, known as the Pizza Portal.
The Toronto venture was developed by restaurant industry veterans, Fahim Ahmadi and Jay Yordi of the Naan & Kabob Group.
“The new Cubby Smart Kitchen is designed to offer customers a delicious taste….of the future”, said Ahmadi. “Our self-serve order kiosks and food cubbies make the entire experience easy, seamless and fun.”
The co-founders deep expertise improves on the recent “virtual kitchen” concept and introduces a Smart Kitchen, designed to optimize operations while ensuring consistency of product, service and experience, making Cubby particularly well suited to both contactless service and food delivery.
