Door-Dashing into the kitchen they go!
DoorDash (DASH) is buying Chowbotics, a robotics firm most known for its kitchen robot, Sally. Sally is a vending machine-type, six-foot-tall, salad-dispensing robot that is any tech-foodie’s dream. Sally is also a pandemic-friendly way to serve people healthy food thanks to its touch-free interface and integrated contactless payment solutions.
Chowbotics has raised around $21m in funding so far and has been working with other robotics companies (eg Starship Technologies) to create more innovation in the food and beverage industry.
