Debuting in Jersey City’s Newport Centre Mall, RoboBurger is the world's first burger vending machine. The startup behind the unique machine claims that its invention is the "biggest innovation in hot food vending since the invention of the microwave."
The automated machine occupies around 12 square feet and can make a burger from scratch in about six minutes. RoboBurger replicates the same five-step cooking process used at many fast-food chains. When a burger is ordered, an automated griddle grills a grass-fed Angus beef, antibiotic-free, patty and toasts a locally made potato bun. Customers can also customize their order with ketchup, mustard and cheese. RoboBurger is also outfitted with a built-in cleaning system, rated to the standards of the National Sanitary Foundation.
Accepting both Apple Pay and Google Pay, RoboBurger aims to launch other automated machines at other malls, airports, colleges and more.
