"Flip camera inventor turns to high-tech grilled cheese"
Are there other fast food restaurants taking advantage of new technology in a similar fashion?
Buy a grilled cheese on your smartphone, and you get a QR code to swipe in store when you arrive. The back-end software ensures that you get a piping hot grilled cheese in your hands within 60 seconds of checking in.
He (Jonathan Kaplan) tapped European appliance giant Electrolux to create a brand-new grill with a built-in microwave. It nukes the cheese for 15 seconds, then toasts the bread for another 30 seconds.
Kaplan won't say how much funding he received, but he plans to start more than 500 Melt locations in the next four years. Each store will cost between $500,000 and $1 million. You do the math.
Assuming it's a good meal/product, will this influence where you choose to eat your meal?
