If you've ever peeked behind the counter at McD.....there is a lots of automation there already.

They have all sorts of nooks cooking and keeping things warm. They put in the raw product and out comes cooked eggs, cooked chicken breasts, etc.....

The pizza places still make the pizzas by hand but they go in gigantic conveyer ovens..... it's just a small step to robots making the pizzas......

In 10 years, with the cost of employees going up, there's going to be a lot more automation....and fewer employees....
