Wendy's is utilizing new technology to get its customers their burgers, fries and frostys as quickly as possible.
The Ohio-based fast-food company announced a partnership with Pipedream, a hyperlogistics company, to test an underground autonomous robot system that can deliver digital food orders to your parking spot outside the restaurant "in seconds," according to a company news release.

The first fast-food chain to test such a concept, Wendy's is on a mission to further its goal of serving digital-forward customers "with greater ease, speed and accuracy."
The first-of-its-kind system utilizes an autonomous robot to bring your order straight from the Wendy's kitchen to the Instant Pickup portal adjacent to your parking space. Think of a bank drive-thru tube system - but with robots and sophisticated technology.
The delivery system will be integrated into an existing Wendy's location later this year, however where exactly it will be hasn't been announced.
