Hyphen is a foodservice platform designed to help restaurant owners, operators, and budding chefs move their businesses forward by putting their kitchen operations on autopilot. We are addressing the operational complexities in the kitchen with the use of AI-based software and robotics. We help restaurants augment their workforce, reduce food waste, and ensure meals are created the way their chef intended.

Founded in 2020, our team is composed of leaders in advanced food-robotics, food-tech, and food-service – we know kitchens and the equipment that makes them run. We’ve seen the challenges that restaurants face as dining preferences continue to shift, and we’re here to help them adapt. We champion thoughtful, human-centered design, and we see its potential to improve our daily lives.

After experiencing a crucible moment amidst the global pandemic in 2020 (you can read more here), Hyphen was born to help restaurants in a time of need. Today, we have customers across the US with reservations for hundreds of systems to design, build, and deploy.

We’ve raised over $50M from top VCs and we’re growing rapidly. We have offices in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, with many of our roles open to partial or fully remote work. We’re a team of food and technology enthusiasts, laser focused on revolutionizing the restaurant landscape together.
