ROBOjuice Readies for First Installation Early Next Year
Company's robot will use a patented in-cup approach to blending smoothies.
Last week ROBOjuice gave the world a sneak peek at its forthcoming smoothie-making robot … but it didn’t offer up a ton of detail. Thankfully, ROBOjuice Co-Founder and CEO Yevgeny Senkevich followed up with us to share some new information about its robot that gives us a better picture at what’s ahead for the company.
First off, the robot showed off in that demo video is a month old. ROBOjuice’s current current version offers up five types of liquid ingredients (up from just one), two dry ingredients (also up from just one), and more fruit and veggie dispensers will be added (there are just two now).
ROBOjuice plans on installing its first machine at a to-be announced location in the Bay Area “early next year,” according to Senkevich. As it comes to market, the company is also changing up its business model to become more of a B2B2C licensor that works with established F&B brands — a la Blendid and Jamba’s robot-powered smoothies. Senkevich did not disclose if ROBOjuice has signed on any partners yet.
