NAME: STRATIS MORFOGEN, OWNER, BROOKLYN DUMPLING SHOP
"You know, embrace technology, because technology is something that has to be embraced by hospitality (business) to thrive... This is the future. This is the way, the most efficient and cost effective way to distribute a product... Seven out of 10 restaurants do fell within three years, the number one reason is excessive payroll. And with that, I believe that the automat actually saves jobs."
The shop aims to get customers
in and out in two to four minutes
