Deliver New Speed and Efficiency to Quick-Service Restaurants

Stay Ahead of Customers’ Orders with AI

AI technology is helping quick-service restaurants (QSRs) address labor shortage and become more agile and efficient. With computer vision and speech recognition, restaurant operators can automate food ordering through AI-enabled kiosks, predict when orders will be ready, optimize staffing, and deliver meals to homes faster—creating more satisfied, brand-loyal customers.

Every single fast-food restaurant and retail store should have automated avatar agents that represent each brand to provide excellent customer service.

Speech-Enabled Food Kiosks

NVIDIA Omniverse Avatar connects NVIDIA’s technologies in speech AI, computer vision, natural language understanding, recommendation engines, and simulation technologies to create interactive avatars. The characters are ray-traced 3D graphics that can see, speak, converse on a wide range of subjects, and understand naturally spoken intent.

These avatars can automate ordering in restaurants and drive-through kiosks by chatting with and understanding customers when they order from the menu and making recommendations for cross- and up-selling.

Customer Order Analytics

Leveraging NVIDIA Metropolis to deploy intelligent video analytics (IVA) across stores and restaurants delivers the rich data and insights that help managers improve efficiency, enhance customer experiences, and make critical decisions faster.  

Leading QSRs are using IVA to improve queue and wait-time management, curbside pickup services, production quality and food safety, sanitation management, exterior and interior security, and consumer engagement. 

Forecasting and Inventory Optimization

NVIDIA-Certified Systems™  and NVIDIA RAPIDS data science libraries enable scientists to reduce extract, transform, and load (ETL) operations, train models faster, and Improve forecast accuracy. QSRs can run forecasts more frequently and improve forecast accuracy by as much as 20 percent to ensure they have the right products to meet customer orders.
