Imagine a robot inside a vending machine grills a burger for you in six minutes. A fresh, piping hot burger, right off the grill that you can grab 30 seconds after it’s ready. Cool, huh? Well, for the inhabitants of Jersey City, that scenario is possible, thanks to RoboBurger, the world’s first burger robot in a box.
“A restaurant in miniature,” according to its official website.
RoboBurger is a plug and play vending machine with a robot inside that cooks a burger in six minutes “with the perfectly grilled patty, and a crispy, fresh toasted bun.” It uses a 5-Step Cooking Process, similar to what chefs use in a traditional restaurant.
RoboBurger has the fastest grill to hand technology in the industry, says its manifesto.
The first RoboBurger of the U.S. is located at Newport Mall, in downtown Jersey City, second floor next to the passage. The company is looking for partners in the TriState area and plans to install robot burger chefs at airports, colleges, offices, factories, military bases and other malls.

An IA kitchen
RoboBurger is an artificially intelligent, self-operating and patented kitchen designed to include all of the processes of a restaurant at a fraction of the size, says its website.
Theit robots are equipped with a complex, miniature kitchen consisting of a refrigeration system to keep ingredients fresh, a griddle to cook and a dishwasher system to allow the unit to self-clean, making it the first machine of its kind, according to the creators.
RoboBurger was founded three years ago by Audley Wilson, Dan Braido and Andy Siegel, three men with passion for engineering, robotics and delicious burgers. Wilson and Braido graduated at Carnegie Mellon, while Siegel comes from the Unniversity of Illinois.
