The world’s first frozen yogurt robots will arrive at select grocery retailers in 16 US states this spring, says Reis & Irvy’s, a subsidiary franchise concept of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands.
Reis & Irvy’s says that the yogurt-selling robots will offer “a fun and delicious experience to the shopper while grocery stores can enjoy a convenient revenue generating addition to their location.”
The patented technology, manufactured by Flex Ltd., which makes fourth-wall vending machines, will feature frozen yogurts from Dannon. Delivery and installation of the robots will be handled by Pitney Bowes.
Reis & Irvy’s plans to deploy the robots in high traffic locations including grocery stores, markets and retailers. The first deliveries and installations will take place in April, followed by approximately 185 units in May and 250 in June.
