Hyphen, an emerging automation company that uses software and robotics to help improve efficiency and consistency in commercial kitchens, announced it raised $24 million in a Series A financing round.

Since launching in 2020, the company has raised $34.4 million and will use the funds to build out its factory, expand into new markets, invest in research and development for next-generation products and deploy with customers nationwide. The new round of financing also will help Hyphen hire designers, engineers and operators.

Hyphen’s first product, The Makeline, automates the assembly of digital orders. The company says the system can produce 350 meals per hour while improving order accuracy. The system lids and labels every meal with the customer’s name and meal information to prevent mix-ups.

In the past 12 months, Hyphen has tripled the number of customers who have reserved hundreds of Makelines. At planned production capacity, Hyphen says it has sufficient demand for the next two years and will begin taking new reservations later this year for deployments in 2024.
