Now Cuisine is a robotics startup building a highly-scalable network of autonomous “restaurant-in-a-box” kiosks that serve hot, fully-customizable, affordable meals on demand. Our vision is to massively improve access to nutritious, high-quality food, and dominate the emerging global market for consumer-facing food robotics. Our full, did-it-before team of food automation and 3D printing industry experts includes a CEO who brought the 1st 3D printer to market and founded two exited startups, and a CTO who pioneered robotic foodservice kiosks and exited to Coke.
Our unique RoPaaS (Robotic Platform as-a-Service) business model leverages the foodservice operations of our customers and the branding and recipes of popular restaurants to yield SaaS-like unit economics. Our proprietary zero-food-contact technology ensures food safety, bypasses the need for machine cleaning, and enables highly efficient operations.
Our kiosks can go nearly anywhere since deployment barriers such as special utilities and facilities have been eliminated: They give people in convenience stores, hotels, office and multifamily buildings, colleges, and other locations immediate access to restaurant-quality meals. Locations benefit from a competitive amenity, employee productivity boost, and new revenue source. Restaurants get a new way to scale quickly without labor, real estate, CapEx, or risk, greatly expanding their reach while promoting their brands.
