A LA–based company has unveiled what it is calling the world’s “first mobile restaurant powered by robotic technology.”
Ono Food Company’s robotics food truck will serve smoothie blends for under six dollars to the Los Angeles community, starting from this Fall.
It has been created by alumni from well-known companies in automation and logistics, including Instacart, Cafe X and L2F – the systems integrator for Zume Pizza, Tesla, and SpaceX.
The company’s co-founder and CEO, Stephen Klein, said: “We’re excited to be launching our first market in our backyard, sunny Los Angeles.
“Fast food options usually falls into two buckets: fast, healthy, and unaffordable, or fast, unhealthy, and affordable and nothing in between.
“Combining our backgrounds in tech, automation, and culinary fine dining, we knew we could fill this void to give more people access to healthy, high-quality food.”
While Ono’s food truck is powered by complex technology, the company says that ordering an Ono Blend is incredibly simple.
Customers approach Ono’s ordering kiosk, place their custom order, and watch as robotic systems create their blends from scratch within 60 seconds.
Ono’s food truck of the future leverages advanced patent-pending robotics to remove inefficiencies in food prep.
Following the initial launch, Ono will be launching an app where customers can view where the Ono Blends truck is located.
Customers can place their order on their smartphone device to enjoy a personalized blend in advance.
Once the individual is within a 300-foot radius of the truck, the robotic systems will initiate the order to ensure the blend is made fresh and will be ready when the customer arrive.
