Kiwibot Partners With Sodexo to Expand Robotic Food Delivery Services

Food and Beverages | Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Kiwibot and Sodexo will offer robotic food services, which will be initially available at three campuses in the U.S. by August 2021.

FREMONT, CA: Kiwibot announces its partnership with Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company, to expand its robotic fleet to drive the future of smart university campuses. Robot food deliveries will be available at three campuses in the U.S.: New Mexico State University, Loyola Marymount University, California, and Gonzaga University, Washington, by august 2021.

Kiwibot offers full remote and in-field customer support to businesses and integrates with any business' point-of-sale to distribute their food products via powerful and attractive robots. Therefore, Kiwibot and Sodexo envision a subscription program where every person in a Sodexo-serviced location can obtain any goods that can fit into a robot and are located within a university campus.

College students at these campuses will be able to use their meal plans to take advantage of Kiwibot delivery through their local delivery app, Bite+. However, anyone with access to the app can enjoy the service, with each delivery having a flat cost of $2, plus 10 percent of the order size. The rollout will be supported by Sodexo and its ongoing commitment to implement safe, convenient foodservice solutions that continue to amaze and delight customers. Sodexo has 420,000 employees and serves more than 100 million customers in 64 countries worldwide.

Kiwibot, founded in 2017, became notable after launching a pilot at the University of California-Berkeley campus. After over 150,000 deliveries were completed at Berkeley, with product development and testing for the B2C model, Kiwibot expanded to San Jose, Santa Monica, Denver, Dallas, Taipei, and Medellin with a new B2B business model and partners.

“Our success comes from incredible customers like Sodexo who are willing to change the status quo,” said Felipe Ch¡vezCort©s, the CEO and Co-Founder of Kiwibot. “This is just the beginning of our offerings to college students to test out the latest in robotic food delivery, and provide universities across the U.S. with the future of smart campuses.”

“We are excited to grow our robot food delivery service with Kiwibot and provide customers with a safe, convenient, contactless, and innovative solution,” said Aurelia Valot, Digital Transformation and Innovation vice president Sodexo. “We are looking forward to expanding this offering in the coming months.”
