Baristas out on their Keisters when Starbucks automates!

Episode 231:  Currently my favorite robotic stock isn’t a high tech company like ABB, it’s Starbucks.  I believe that over the short to near term, Starbucks will start implementing off-the-shelf robotic baristas that will drastically reduce headcount.  This will not only improve profits but also improve customer service.

As I discuss in my book, some of the best investments in automation won’t be the innovators of robotics, but rather the companies that implement robots.
