After owning a coffee shop and coffee roaster in a small mountain town in Colorado, it didn't take long for Matt to realize the industry needs to adapt and adjust for rising labor costs, high turn over rates and increasing property costs.
If the manufacturing industry turned to automation, why wouldn't the service industry? That's when Matt thought "You can start adapting and automating now, or watch everyone else do it." After 9 months of research and planning, another 9 months of building and programming, the first prototype was born (It's the versions you see on the site).
