Bobacino and Boba Guys partner for robotic Boba Shops development

Boba Guys will shape the future look and function of Bobacino’s boba shops.

Bobacino has entered a research and development collaboration with US-based Boba cafés chain, Boba Guys, to expedite the development of fully automated robotic Boba Shops.

As part of the collaboration, the companies will explore future collaboration opportunities and advance the development of Bobacino’s technology.

Bobacino develops completely automated, small footprint boba tea shops using advanced artificial intelligence (AI), automation and robotics.

The company’s fully automated boba tea bar offers customisable and flavourful options.

Under the terms of the collaboration deal, Boba Guys will serve as a strategic advisor to Bobacino, with the aim of shaping the future of the boba industry.

The company will also shape the future look and function of boba shops and use robotic automation to empower boba shop owners.

Bobacino CEO Darian Ahler said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Boba Guys, a brand with a strong commitment to quality – not only in its product but also in its service.

“As the boba market continues to quickly expand, we look forward to furthering the sector and making the boba experience even better than it is today.”

Currently, the company is working on its crowdfunding campaign, WAX.

The lead investors of Bobacino are Wavemaker Partners, Embark Ventures and automation-focused venture studio Wavemaker Labs.

Boba Guys co-founder Bin Chen said: “Boba Guys believes that progress and innovation is often at the edges of technology, and we can think of no better partner to explore automation with than Bobacino.

“The tools and technology that Bobacino provides will create something entirely new and open up markets and opportunities for the whole boba industry.”
