Announced as a collaboration between MasterCard and SoftBank, the Pepper robot will be coming to Pizza Hut locations in Asia to act as a digital waiter. The robot will be capable of taking orders and payments, and being a friendly service provider for hungry customers.

Set to start being present in Pizza Hut locations by the end of this year, Pepper is an innovative robot from SoftBank that is capable of providing a great experience for customers. The retail robot shows significant promise for a variety of different uses and could help to revolutionize how we think about retail staff in the 21st century.

The Pepper robot will be capable of taking payments in the Pizza Hut locations in the form of MasterPass or other smartphone-centric payment methods.
