In the world of food robots, there’s a trend towards building what are, in essence, stand-alone restaurants in a box.
These independent robotic kiosks enable operators to offer food and generate revenue from pretty much anywhere: airports, universities, condos. For the consumer, they’re great because it allows you to buy a warm meal without having to sit down at a restaurant.
Many of these self-contained food-making robots specialize in a type of food or are limited in what exactly they can do. The RoboEatz Ark 03, however, stands out because it can do almost everything: food prep, make hot or cold meals, plating the meal, cook four meals simultaneously. It even cleans up when it’s done.
“It’s almost like a dark kitchen,” Alex Barseghian, CEO of RobEatz, tells the Spoon. “You can cook bowls, salads, pasta all in one shot.”
Recently, The Spoon’s Carlos Rodela caught up with Barseghian to check in on the company’s progress and see the Ark 03 in action. During the interview, Barseghian tells Carlos all the details about the robot kitcen, including how many meals it can make, how many ingredients it holds, and when it expects to deploy the Ark 03 to a second location.
