BellaBot is our most popular restaurant service robot and it is for good reason! For running food to the tables, there’s no better serving robot than BellaBot on the market. The most menial task for waiters and waitresses around the world is bringing food from the kitchen to the table, and it’s no wonder why. Dishes can quite large and heavy, and there are only so many you can stack on a tray. Piping hot dishes can be a burn hazard for both workers and patrons as they make way to deliver food to the tables. We’ve heard countless concerning stories from customers we’ve worked with of such injuries and burns happening in their restaurants and their search for a solution. That’s where BellaBot comes in to save the day!
Multi-robot Coordination and Cooperation: KettyBot can coordinate operations with additional units within the same network to operate quickly and efficiently. The robots can coordinate their movements to avoid interrupting each other. KettyBot provides voice alerts and on screen notifications when the battery level gets too low and automatically returns to the docking station to recharge. No need to worry about manually charging the robot, KettyBot takes care of that on its own!
IPX5 Waterproof Cabin: The HolaBot’s cabin area is IPX5 rated to take on various liquids splashing while operating. Simply wipe it off with a damp towel for easy cleaning. Different Operating Scenarios: The HolaBot can be used in various different environments, such as restaurants and hospitals as shown below. Other novel uses include banks, pharmacies, factories, warehouses and order fulfillment centers, auto/truck repair facilities among others.

We’ve had the gracious opportunity to deploy numerous KettyBot units in the field and get feedback from many different restaurants on what the saw as the best case use scenarios for the KettyBot in their establishments. As the carrying capacity of the KettyBot is a bit on the smallish side, it’s ideal for smaller restaurants and cafes to use it for delivering food to tables and fit in tighter aisles, but for larger establishments, the KettyBot’s tray dimensions are usually a limiting factor. On the other hand, it has a large screen up front to display pictures and videos of the latest dishes and to promote upcoming events and sales, so larger restaurant owners have taken it upon themselves to try out the KettyBot to take patrons to their tables.
