Think of Amazon’s self-checkout grocery stores in the U.S. Now, make it a restaurant. Box’d claims it is the first fully automated restaurant in Canada and it’s opening its location in Toronto at 4 King St. W., near Yonge St., on June 18. Overseen by Paramount Fine Foods, this mainly take-out venture — though there are six dining tables available once public health restrictions lift — allows customers to order boxed meals using the company’s app and website, or come directly into the restaurant and speak with a “concierge,” who will take their order.
