The chain is partnering with Miso Robotics to use Flippy and Sippy at one restaurant with the possibility for more.

Kelly Roddy, CEO of the multi-concept operator, said the deal would be announced in the next couple of weeks, and that both of the purchases would be better-for-you brands.

The two California-based fast-food chains completed their merger this week. Here’s a look at some of the changes that could come to the taco chain.

The quick-service burger chain shrunk last quarter. But it has more commitments for new units from franchisees than at any time in its history.

The burger chain, which made a surprising deal for the Mexican concept, is not exactly ruling out another acquisition down the line.

The burger chain is paying $12.51 per share for the Mexican fast food chain to get more scale and drive more unit growth.

The Bottom Line: The deal signals a shifting market in the restaurant business. But it also demonstrates why executives should reconsider overreacting to activist investors.

With sales hurt from a lack of workers, the burger chain is turning to a variety of strategies to keep workers, including automated shake machines and mobile applications.

The burger chain estimates that closing hours and problems getting products hurt same-store sales by 4% last quarter.
