What may be the world's first fully automated restaurant is opening in California


Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. What is believed to be the world's first fully automated restaurant is opening in Pasadena, Calif. Customers at the CaliExpress will order and pay for their food from self-service kiosks, and they can then watch as robots grind premium beef for their burger or cheeseburger and cook up their fries. The creators of the burger spot say it will be safer for employees and cut down on waste. No word on whether the robots will check your cholesterol. It's MORNING EDITION.
