Dishcraft is a robotics company focused on solving the labor and sustainability challenges facing foodservice operators.
Dishcraft Robotics has a simple pitch to corporate kitchens and restaurants that could potentially save tons of single use plastic, noncompostable takeout containers, dishware and cutlery from ending up in landfills.
Dishcraft was founded in 2015 by Linda Pouliot and Paul Birkmeyer. The company is headquartered in San Carlos, California.
Dishcraft's mission is to create happy, productive, sustainable workplaces by making automation accessible to food-service operations.
Dishcraft Daily is a full-service dishware delivery service that uses robotics and AI to improve sustainability, efficiency and the dining experience of food service operations. Similar to a linen service, Dishcraft Daily delivers quality, reusable dishes and flatware each day with pricing comparable to, or less than, disposable wares and in-house dishwashing.
Dishcraft's technology involves the integration of sensors, computer vision, machine learning, UV lighting and innovative mechanics to autonomously sort, scrub, inspect and rack dishware. Plates are cleaned and inspected multiple times using sensors that can spot miniscule particles invisible to the human eye.
Dishcraft is backed by First Round Capital, Lemnos VC, Grit Ventures, Baseline Ventures, Fuel Capital and others. The company raised $20M in a Series B round on May 27, 2020. This brings Dishcraft's total funding to $45.2M to date.
