Aramark has launched the first Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered Quick Eats store in Scotland. The landmark AI powered store has been launched at Aegon’s offices in Edinburgh to serve its 1,300 staff members.

Quick Eats is an ambient Intelligence driven, no-wait, checkout-free retail store offering easy access to various foods, beverages, and essentials at all hours of the working day. Customers are enabled to shop at their own pace without disruption. By using Aramark’s WorkXgo App, customers simply walk in and walk out without waiting in lines or going through a cashier and going on with their day.

The store features overhead cameras and intelligent shelf sensors, which combine detection, visual cognition, and secure payment integration, always safeguarding privacy. This innovative technology and retail offer eliminates check-out waiting times and offers a quick, seamless, and convenient alternative to the traditional shopping experience.

The flagship Quick Eats store forms part of ‘Aramark Connected’, which applies technology-enabled innovation that provides frictionless experiences for consumers, whenever and wherever they are. Aramark continuously invests in new technologies and offers seamless interactions to eliminate friction wherever possible. This investment puts service at the core of everything Aramark does, securing an exceptional experience for clients and customers.

Globally, this is the third Aramark Quick Eats store deploying the technology, with the first two opening in Germany and Chile.
