A Q&A with Chas Studor, Founder of Briggo and New CTO of Now Cuisine
Studor talks about his new role, lessons learned and the importance of software.
Normally, I don’t cover personnel announcements (PR people, please take note). Unless they are super influential or well-known, no one cares who your new VP of marketing is. But when I learned that Chas Studor is Now Cuisine’s new CTO, I though it merited a post.
Studor’s been in the role for a while, but they’ve kept it quiet. I first met Studor years ago at, appropriatley enough a coffee shop. At the time, he was Co-Founder and CTO of Briggo, which made a robotic coffee kiosk. Costa Coffee bought Briggo last year for an undisclosed sum. Studor has moved on from coffee to food and is now helping build Now Cuisine, which is basically a robot-restaurant in a box.
Studor was kind enough to sit down with me (virtually) this week for a quick Q&A about his new role, some technical challenges of building an all-in-one food kiosk, and the lessons he he learned from Briggo.
