Who are we ?

Cook-e was founded in 2019 by three partners - Raphaël,  Quentin and Ludovic - united by the same desire: to revolutionize restaurant's kitchens. After having interviewed  around fifty players in the sector (chefs, managers, versatile employees, restaurant owners...)  we designed Cook-e's robotic kitchen with a triple goal. 

The first is to allow restaurants to breathe financially. In France, 60% of restaurant owners close their doors within the first 3 years, because the sector is competitive and the margins are often low, or even zero. By automating certain recurring tasks, Cook-e allows to achieve profitability, thereby sustaining the restaurant's survival and the team's jobs. 

The second is to put the taste of good ingredients  back at the center of attention. Too many restaurant owners have to cut corners on the quality of ingredients to break even. Thanks to the surplus generated by automation, our bet is that Cook-e will allow restaurant owners to invest in higher quality ingredients, for the greatest pleasure of consumers.  

And the last is to harness technology to deliver a better customer experience. Personalization of dishes with the ingredient close for all customers, reduced waiting time, prediction of preparation times, order tracking... These are some of the promises of our robotic platform!
