PRINGLE ROBOTIC'S ROBOT WAITRESSES PROVIDED SNACKS AT THE EVENT

On Thursday, Peoria Chamber of Commerce and Barracks Hospitality Group Banquet Center & Catering co-hosted an after-hours networking event. Pringle Robotic's robot waitresses provided snacks at the event.

Pringle Robotics is a local company that offers a variety of robots capable of moving and delivering objects, making announcements, and disinfecting places. Gerald Prall, Pringle Robotics' Director of Sales, stated that all of their robot's software was developed in-house. According to Prall, the robots are a tool that may assist businesses with understaffing.

"Many industries are experiencing staffing shortages, but service based industries in particular are experiencing it to a greater degree," Prall said. Barrack's Hospitality President Jim Barrack said the robot servers are a great idea.

“I would like to offer them to certain clients and to certain applications because it is really unique,” said Barrack.

Avantis on North Knoxville Avenue. Peoria recently introduced customers to a robot called "Rosie," which was programmed to require customers to their seats and carry menus. Rosie joined Avanti from the locally owned Pringle Robotics.

Stefan Zeller, CEO of Avanti, said the robot was introduced to him to alleviate the shortage of labor. "Some people hate it and refuse to be seated by the robot, which is ok, but if you have got two or three hostesses and now only one or two, this makes up for the loss. Personally, it helps, "said Zeller. Zeller said he wants to rent an extra hostess, but they cannot fill the position, but Rosie helps fill the gap to produce quality service.

"We're not trying to destroy our jobs, we're trying to enrich where we will provide the services our guests want and therefore the services they need to produce," Zeller said. Zeller said the robot hostess could be a hit with kids, despite some feedback
