Blendid creates compact, autonomous, contactless robotic food kiosks available in retail stores, universities, travel centers, and hospitals throughout the US.
Key Deal Facts
We've raised over $26 Million and sold over 100k smoothies in retail stores, universities, and travel centers, as well as hospital and Walmart locations with co-branded Jamba locations in California, Georgia, and Florida.
We have a commercial agreement with Jamba to expand and deploy “Jamba by Blendid” kiosks across the country and received a strategic investment from Focus Brands, the parent of Jamba, to scale our manufacturing and operations nationwide.
Our proprietary contactless, food-safe, and NSF-certified technology is poised for increased market adoption in the post-COVID world. In 2022, we tripled the number of our locations, increased revenue by 367% from 2021, and contracted over 500 kiosks. Our AI-driven platform is comprehensively protected by 13 patents granted or in-process.
