Robotic food service startup Blendid has announced its expansion into the athletic club industry with the opening of two robotic smoothie kiosks at select Bay Club locations in California. The 8 by 8-foot kiosks will allow members, staff, and guests to enjoy freshly made smoothies customized to their specific nutrition needs any time the club is open.
With the use of Blendid’s contactless food automation platform, orders can be made directly at kiosk touch screens or through the Blendid App and scheduled for a pick-up time. The robot can make up to nine smoothies simultaneously and up to 45 custom blends in a single hour, so smoothies are typically ready in under three minutes.
The first clubs to open Blendid robotic smoothie kiosks will be Bay Club San Francisco and Bay Club Redwood Shores. The robotic startup has already proven its model in a variety of non-traditional venue types, including shopping centers, colleges and university campuses, travel centers, and hospitals.
