Designed to meet your unique health and taste preferences
Blendid is transforming how and what we eat, one robotic kiosk at a time
Many of us strive to eat healthier, especially when on-the-go, but getting access to food that fits our unique health needs and our unique tastes preferences is hard.
That’s why we created Blendid, a contactless and autonomous robotic food kiosk that uses advanced technology – including robotics, machine vision, and artificial intelligence – to prepare and serve healthy and delicious food, customized to your preferences.
It all began in 2015. Our three co-founders, Venki Ayalur, Vipin Jain, and Vijay Dodd wanted to have fresh, healthy and personalized food available for anyone, anytime, anywhere. As seasoned techies and entrepreneurs, they pondered how technology could help.
Creating food that is tailored to an individual’s specific needs is difficult and time-consuming when prepared in a traditional kitchen. But, when leveraging technology – specifically robotics, machine learning and AI – they thought there could be a way to automate the process, thereby creating efficiencies and enabling accessibility more broadly and at a reasonable price.
After much trial and error, the Blendid concept was finally created. Finally, in March 2019 the first Blendid commercial kiosk was launched in market.
While we started with a robotic smoothie kiosk, our vision is to serve a complete array of healthy, affordable foods using robotics. Our goal is to deploy these kiosks in all types of food service environments. Our advanced food operating system will expand and adapt to other formats and cuisines including soups, bowls, and more.
Blendid is located throughout the greater Bay Area and looking to expand to other retail corporations and hospitals.
