PicnicWorks, a developer of kitchen automation technology, has partnered with Minnow Technologies, a startup that has developed the Pickup Pod, a self-service pickup solution for foodservice operators, according to a press release.

The partnership leverages the expertise of both companies to help commercial kitchens, stadiums, large franchises, universities and commercial food service providers envision and enable end-to-end food automation services. This includes a focus on mobile and kiosk ordering, automated food assembly and secure contactless pickup solutions.

"Both companies share a desire to create automation solutions for the foodservice industry," Clayton Wood, CEO of Picnic, said in the release. "Minnow's cloud-connected pickup solutions are an excellent complement to Picnic kitchen automation technology. From mobile ordering to secure pickup, together we offer a complete modern automation solution."

The partnership will build customized solutions using the two companies' technology. For example, a customer can place a mobile or kiosk order that is made automatically by the Picnic station and then put in a heated or insulated Pickup Pod for the customer to retrieve at their convenience.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with Picnic to bring leading-edge automation solutions to foodservice operators," Steven Sperry, CEO and co-founder of Minnow, said in the release. "Our goal is to create solutions that delight diners while improving the efficiency and profitability of kitchens. By leveraging Picnic kitchen automation technology and Minnow's pickup offering, we have an opportunity to bring best-in-class automation solutions to our customers."
