Dishcraft Introduces Automated Dishroom for Commercial Kitchens


Dishcraft introduces an automated dishroom to transform commercial kitchens by using robotics, process innovation, and machine learning to sort, scrub, inspect, and rack dishes.

The Dishcraft solution cleans each dish individually using grey water and energy-efficient cleaning mechanisms, resulting in more sustainable operations. Each dish is inspected in a fraction of a second for remaining food residue using computer vision and machine learning to achieve a consistent level of quality unmatched in dishrooms today. The work environment created by the Dishcraft solution leads to fewer slips, better ergonomics, and no use of additional chemicals.

Dishcraft is led by co-founders Linda Pouliot and Paul Birkmeyer. Prior to Dishcraft, Pouliot co-founded Neato Robotics. Birkmeyer, the company’s CTO, was previously co-founder of Dash Robotics, which focused on making low-cost, build-it-yourself, bio-inspired robots promoting STEM engagement for kids. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley and has led projects ranging from wearable robotics to humanoid robots to autonomous motorcycle-racing robots.

The company has raised $25 million from leading venture capital firms including Baseline Ventures, First Round Capital, and Lemnos. To learn more, visit
