Hospitality expert, Jon Taffer, best known as the host of reality TV series Opens a New Window. ‘Bar Rescue’ believes machines Opens a New Window. will replace chefs in less than a decade.
“The future of culinary is not chefs,” he told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney Opens a New Window. on Thursday. “The future of culinary is technology.”
In Taffer’s opinion, higher minimum wages will lead to less people in the kitchen and more technology.
“The restaurant sector, we’re facing $15 an hour minimum wages now. We’re facing no labor pools. We can’t afford to count on an individual to cook these burgers,” he said. “I believe 7 years from now, there could be machines cooking these hamburgers.”
