RoboBurger is working with some of the largest companies in the US to help them improve their food offerings by providing people with access to freshly cooked food 24 hours a day, without having to leave the building, whether it’s a workplace, university, hospital or transportation hub.

“We have received an overwhelming amount of interest from around the world. This new round of funding will allow us to rapidly scale up and keep up with the incredible demand as we continue to roll out RoboBurger units across the US,” says Audley Wilson, the CEO of RoboBurger Inc. 

RoboBurger Inc launched its first pop-up location in March 2022 in Newport Mall in Jersey City.

“Since opening our first pop-up location, we’ve gotten a lot of feedback that has helped us improve both the taste of our burgers and the time it takes to make them. Our newest units reflect these changes, and customers can now get a hot, freshly grilled burger in about 4 minutes,” says Dan Braido, CTO of RoboBurger Inc.

The company is launching its second-generation units in Pilot Flying J – Newark, one of the largest urban truck rest stop chains, a university in Queens, NY, and The Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.
