Bite Ninja co-founder Will Clem said the company is "changing the game" for the fast-food industry by providing remote cashiers to partner restaurants.
"With Bite Ninja, you get a lot more freedom," Clem told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Thursday.
Rather than having a manager assign schedules, the "ninjas," as Clem calls them, bid for shifts and get paid through Venmo after every clock-out.
In addition, employees can work remotely from anywhere in the world.
"There's no more waiting two weeks for pay day," Clem explained, "as soon as you clock out, cha-ching, money’s in the bank. It's an automated process."
Bite Ninja wants to change the customer experience, too, according to the co-founder.
"It feels very natural. If you pull up into these drive-thru lanes, think about it, you're already talking to a speaker," Clem noted.
"The first thing you're going to ask is, ‘Why weren't we doing this all along?’" he continued.
While Bite Ninja has spent the last year in its testing phase, the company is expected to announce its restaurant partners later this month. On Thursday, the company announced it had received $4 million in seed funding, according to a press release.
Clem said they’ve received "thousands" of interested applicants.
"This is really tackling a problem that restaurants have always faced," he said, adding that "and that's how do you staff a restaurant or business that's really bursting?"
