Reasons to Invest

Backed by lead investor, Wavemaker Partners, a global Venture Capital fund with $400M AUM and Wavemaker Labs, a food automation focused venture studio.
A seasoned team of food and robotics expertise made up of executives and founders from Miso Robotics, Kitchen United, SBE Entertainment Group, Graze Autonomous Mowers, and Wolfgang Puck.
Serving the most popular food in the US, pizza ($46.3B), with a dual go-to-market approach: operating our own Piestro units and providing existing pizzerias with the ability to white label Piestro units to grow their market share for a fraction of the cost.

“A revolutionary high quality pizzeria without the high operational costs”

The Problem


Full-service pizza restaurants are expensive to run and have slim margins

The profit margins of a full-service restaurant are extremely low, at approximately 5-10%, due to high real estate and labor costs. According to a survey from Restaurant Owner, restaurant startup costs range anywhere between $175,500 and $750,500, with the median cost at $375,000. Restaurant opening costs average at about $450 per square foot. Additionally, most restaurants have high labor costs due to labor shortage, high turnover rates and rising wages. In fact, it can cost over $3,500 to hire and train a new staff member, so employee retention is crucial. Labor costs for pizza restaurants average at about 31.3%.

The Solution


Piestro: A revolutionary, high quality pizzeria without the high operational costs

Piestro provides a high quality artisanal pizza experience and solves the two biggest problems in traditional restaurants: expensive labor and real estate costs. A Piestro unit is roughly the size of two vending machines and is fully autonomous, requiring no employees to operate, as opposed to the average pizza restaurant’s 10+ employees. While the time to launch a traditional restaurant is about 9-12 months, with Piestro, we believe based on our initial prototype that an existing pizza chain can have our pod up and running within two weeks at a cost of only $50,000, which is about ⅙ of the median total restaurant startup cost.

The average hourly and annual wages of a restaurant cook were $13.06 and $27,170 in 2018, respectively. For typical restaurants that employ 10+ people, payroll costs would be a minimum of $271,700 annually to employ 10 cooks in the kitchen. Piestro requires no labor to operate as it is fully automated, and only needs a part-time employee to service and refill ingredients periodically, which is expected to cost approximately $7,500 per year based on our initial prototype.

The Market


Pizza is the most popular food in the US and chain pizzerias statistically take preference

Pizza is the #1 most popular food in the US and on any given day, about 13% (or 1 in 8) of Americans eat pizza. Piestro’s target market is millennials and generation Z. According to a recent study, 32% of millennials and 41% of Gen Z-ers are willing to pay premium prices for sustainably sourced ingredients like ours. Pizza is also popular on social media, which means it resonates with our target customers. In fact, the hashtag “#pizza” has been used 45.1 million times on Instagram. As per a study by Gousto, a British meal kit retailer, Pizza is the #1 most popular food on Instagram with 37.9M posts. 

The Global Pizza Market was worth $154.8B in 2019 and is projected to hit $233.3B by 2023. The US accounted for a 30% market share and was worth $46.3B. The US market is projected to hit $53.8B in 2023, with a 3.9% annual growth rate from 2019 to 2023. Chain pizzerias accounted for 60% of the pizza market with $27.8B in revenue and 3.17% year over year sales growth, while independent pizza restaurants earned $18.5B in revenue, and held a 40% market share and experience -1.33% year over year sales growth. (Source: PMQ Magazine)

Our Traction


Backed by a venture capital fund with a proven track record investing in robotics companies 

Piestro is a Wavemaker-backed company and was incubated by Wavemaker Labs, providing it access to seed capital and an experienced team of engineers and business professionals. This means Piestro has access to top engineering talent and tools without burning high amounts of cashflow in the early stages of the company. Additionally, Piestro is able to leverage the administrative and business development teams at Wavemaker Labs for hiring, raising capital, building partnerships and finding customers.  


To date, Wavemaker Labs has empowered Piestro to build its first prototype, helped source its executive and operating team, retain several advisors in the robotics and restaurant industries, and begin conversations with several potential partners and customers whom we hope to announce during this campaign.

What We Do


Robotics-run pizza shops that provide customers with restaurant-quality pizzas in minutes

Piestro is an automated robotic pizza shop that delivers high-quality artisanal pizzas within 3 minutes. Because robots don’t sleep, we are able to keep our shops open 24/7 and customers have the option to order ahead, so that pizza is ready when they arrive.


On vending machines, we don’t consider ourselves to be part of this ‘trend.’ Piestro is truly an automated pizzeria – we aren’t frozen food, and we don’t compromise on taste for speed. We are a true producer of artisanal pizza with restaurant level quality that past machines simply didn’t deliver in terms of key components like flavor, texture and ingredients.

*The photos included are of Piestro's first functioning prototype. The Piestro pizzeria is not currently available on the market and in development.

With three decades of food and robotics expertise, we have designed Piestro to be able to cook restaurant-quality pizzas, using the highest quality ingredients, right in front of you - a fun and entertaining experience for the whole family! Piestro is currently in the prototype and development phase.

*The above photo is of Piestro's first functioning prototype. The Piestro pizzeria is not currently available on the market and in development.

The Business Model


From pizzeria to white-label partnerships

  • Phase 1: We sell Pizzas directly to customers, freshly made by our very own Piestro units
  • Phase 2: Selling white-labelled Piestro units to pizza chains looking to expand their footprint with minimal capex and risk

How We Are Different


Revolutionary technology to deliver high quality pizza at fast food prices

Piestro eliminates expensive real estate and labor costs so that we can focus more on the quality of our ingredients, and deliver artisanal pizza at fast food prices, in as little as 3 minutes!

*Margins may vary depending on the product being sold (direct selling and/or "powered by piestro".

The Vision


White Label Pizza Experiences with regional and nation-wide pizza chains

Our Team


A team of experienced robotics engineers with a track record of building multi-million dollar companies

Our founder and CEO, Massimo Noja De Marco, is the co-founder of Kitchen United, which raised $50M and was most recently valued at $140M (Source: Kitchen United Pitchbook Profile). De Marco was named one of the top 10 restaurant innovators in National Restaurant News power list. De Marco’s company, Wavemaker Labs, is a corporate and robotics innovation venture studio with a strong track record of building commercially successful robotics companies like Miso Robotics which is valued at $110M and Graze, valued at $36.9M in pre-orders from two top 20 commercial landscaping companies.


Our team of experienced robotics engineers helped build Miso Robotics and is ready to tackle our next venture with Piestro!

Why Invest


Join our successful team as we blend and shape the future of the robotics and fast-food pizza industry

Our team believes that crowdfunding provides the opportunity to democratize an otherwise private asset class that was previously reserved for high net worth individuals. Piestro is a consumer facing business, so we are crowdfunding to garner excitement and support directly from our potential end-customers. 


The high touch nature of equity crowdfunding campaigns allows us to connect with our customers and take into account their input and opinions throughout the development process, so that we can continue to improve our product and end-to-end customer experience.

As Piestro's lead investor, Wavemaker Partners ($400mm+ Assets Under Management) has determined the major strengths of the company:

  • Huge market: The US pizza market is a $46 billion dollar market and a $155 billion market globally.
  • Deeply embedded consumer behavior: Pizza is a staple of American consumption and on every day 1 out of 8 Americans eat pizza. 
  • Sanitary and Contact-free: Piestro can produce pizzas with zero human contact, which is especially important in the shadow of the current global pandemic.
  • Worsening restaurant labor problem: The restaurant industry is facing a worsening labor shortage in addition to high turnover rates. This is the number one challenge the industry is facing today. 
  • Significant labor savings: Piestro dramatically reduces the labor costs of a typical pizzeria (31% of total costs) and significantly increases profitability.
  • Easily Re-deployable: The Piestro machine is easily re-deployable which is a significant advantage in comparison to brick-and-mortar restaurants which are tied to their location once they pick it.

How it Works: Scheduled Pickups with Piestro Holding Ovens!

about 2 months ago


Our Piestro engineers are integrating holding ovens that keep your order warm and delicious until you're ready to pick it up. With smart scheduling software, a customer is able to order their pizza through the Piestro app and decide when they'd like to pick it up. Once the customer arrives, he/she is able to open their indicated holding oven (10 shown in the rendering above) to pickup their pizza.  

Not only does this feature reduce wait times by eliminating the potential for backlogs but it also conveniently enables us for delivery services like Postmates and UberEats. By integrating with a delivery service, a delivery driver will be able to pick up the pizza and deliver it right to the customer's door!
