Customers of KFC have been served the same secret original recipe for over 60 years now. You can however look out to see a change in one of their usual traditions. Colonel Sanders will be introducing a new concept store in Shanghai, China. The store will allow its customers to order fired chicken from a voice activated robot.
While the robot cannot distinguish other dialects and accents, at least not yet, the robot called ‘Dumi’ is smart enough to handle order changes and substitutes. The store located at the National Exhibition Convention Center, is a collaboration between KFC and Baidu, a Chinese web service. In honor of the brand’s traditional recipe, the duo has named the establishment ‘Original+.’
