Fergus the LollyBot Makes Debut at Big Hospitality Expo 2022

Lolly, the hospitality technology specialist, is excited to showcase Fergus, the robot waiter, at this week's Big Hospitality Expo in London. Fergus, the result of many months of development, has been designed to support busy hospitality environments, specifically assisting waiting staff. The robot can operate for an entire evening, delivering food from the kitchen to tables, navigating obstacles and interacting with customers.

Fergus is not just a waiter; it can also clear tables, allowing human staff to focus on providing an enhanced dining experience. When not in use, the robot automatically returns to its docking station, recharging in approximately three to four hours. Peter Moore, CEO at Lolly, comments on the commercial viability of investing in LollyBots: "Fergus won’t ask for time off, will always show up for work and will do whatever you ask him to!"

Moore emphasizes Lolly's commitment to innovation, making state-of-the-art technology accessible, simple, and highly agile. The launch of Fergus, the new robot waiter, is seen as a solution to support busy waiting staff, especially during challenging times for staff recruitment and retention. Moore believes that the increasing use of technology, including AI and machine learning, indicates that robot waiting staff are here to stay.

The LollyBot is available through a one-off purchase or a monthly lease scheme, including maintenance and support from Lolly. The leasing option offers an ideal financing solution for managing cash flow, with prices starting from approximately £750 per month over a three-year period.
