Chipotle Tests Chippy, a Tortilla Frying Version of Miso's Flippy
Miso's focus on working the fryers seems to be paying off.
Chippy is trained to cook Chipotle’s chips using the restaurants exact ingredients.
Upon successful conclusion of the test, Chippy will be used at a Southern California Chipotle restaurant later this year.
Chippy is the latest modificaiton Miso has made to its Flippy platform, following a specialized Wings version the company unveiled last year.
The story here is that Flippy is gaining traction as a fry cook for big, national level brands. In addition to Chipotle, Miso is also working with White Castle and Inspire Brands/Buffalo Wild Wings.
Chippy is also illustrating the flexibility of the Flippy platform, which was once used for grilling burgers, and is now frying up a variety of products for these QSRs.
