Installation of the BellaBot at the Andulino restaurant

October 13, 2021 was an exciting day for the Restaurant Andulino in the Mall of Switzerland. Because on this day, one of the first service robots in Switzerland, the BellaBot, was successfully configured and installed. The entire staff and especially the General Manager, Jeyakumar Tiambiaiah, were over the moon with their newest teammate.

A milestone for the Andulino restaurant

The installation of the BellaBot "Mia", as it was dubbed by the staff, marked a milestone for the restaurant. In the future, the aim is to offer guests an even better and more interactive culinary experience. Right from the start, the employees were thoroughly instructed in the functions and possibilities of the service robot. This is to ensure that it is smoothly integrated into the operational process.

It was amazing to see the team open up and befriend "Mia" right from the start. Thus, the initial skepticism towards the BellaBot vanished. The employees soon recognized the added value that Mia brought to the daily processes.

First point of contact with the guest

The service robot was warmly welcomed by the guests on the first day. He impressed the restaurant visitors with his friendly manner and ability to take orders and pass them on to the kitchen quickly and precisely. Many guests took time to take photos with Mia. They shared this excitement on social media. This has brought additional attention and recognition to the Andulino restaurant.

Although "Mia" was a robot, she almost seemed to have a personality of her own. She moved effortlessly between the tables. She made sure that the guests felt comfortable and well taken care of. 

Over time, "Mia" not only became an integral part of the team, but also developed into a kind of mascot of the restaurant. The children were particularly fascinated by the friendly robot. They were happy when "Mia" told their jokes. This made the restaurant an even more attractive destination for families.
