It is now widely accepted that this type of operation will be a common element of the global food and beverage service industry and goes way beyond the Covid part. We provide the reach and, along with BIB, a hugely viable economic advantage to both independent operators and major brands.”
Deloss Pickett, the founder of BIB technologies, added, “We are excited to hit the ground running in 2021, and having KP on-board allows us to expand our ecosystem dramatically. It is just super cool to think you can have an entire operation from prep to delivery in a zero-emission environment from a parking lot to our Automato pickup-delivery EV-trucks, and we are looking for those great fits to test out cities across America and help any business move forward.”
