This Robotic Pizza Company Will Bake Your Order En Route to Your House

The future.

Loaded with 56 separate ovens, this food truck is the future of delivery. Each oven is coordinated with machine-learning algorithms and GPS, so when it’s four minutes out from its next delivery, the oven will fire up automatically so it’s fresh right upon delivery. Called Zume, this Silicon Valley company is founded by Zynga and Microsoft alum Alex Garden and Danny Meyer-trained restaurateur Julia Collins.

When the truck opens for business in the morning, an algorithm already knows which pizza orders to pre-prepare. Humans toss the dough and place the toppings, but the sauce and loading are all done by a robot. Once the truck arrives at its destination, the driver will push a button on the oven to eject the pizza and bring it to the truck’s self-cleaning slicer. Currently, the company delivers around 250 pizzas a day and is looking to do “10 times” the business by the end of the year.

According to Julia Collins, “We’re transparent about what what jobs robots have in our business and what they don’t. Humans cut veggies, make sauce, they create the pizza, they write the software. There are so many creative endeavors that are human-led and always will be. But there are other things we do that are perfect for robots. Pulling 2,000 pizzas in and out of an 800 degree oven a day? Perfect for a robot.”
