The World’s First Automated Corndog System
Founded in 1976 by Glenn Walser, Automated Food Systems answered the need of a food processor who needed a method for automating corn dog production. He had expertise as a mechanical engineer and an idea that everybody else said couldn’t be done. With one investor, he went about developing the first automated corndog system in the world.
Proven Ideas Applied to Diverse Products
We expanded our product offerings in 1999, when we built a machine that automatically assembles kebabs. The machine can be customized to meet any customer’s needs, and operates on a conveyor belt system, with plastic trays that hold the different components of the kebab and can accommodate a variety of stick lengths and food items.
Innovating Food Processing On a Global Scale
Today, AFS designs and manufactures custom automated and manual production systems for corn dogs, kebabs, funnel cakes, batter mixing and pumping, and more. We build world-class food processing and material handling equipment every day. And we pride ourselves on engineering smart, creative solutions for our customers.
