Donatos Pizza and its sister companies have partnered with Appetronix to launch a fully autonomous pizza vending machine.

The alliance will focus on developing a standalone, fully autonomous restaurant featuring advanced technologies such as robotics and data science technologies.

Donatos’ sister firms, Agápe Automation and the Grote Company, will co-develop the autonomous pizzeria with Appetronix. 

Agápe Automation also focuses on new technologies for autonomous standalone restaurants and small prep bots for existing restaurant kitchens.

Grote Company will offer its experience as the manufacturer of slicing and food assembly equipment for companies the world over.

The first autonomous pizza vending machine developed for Donatos by Appetronix will be deployed in Columbus, Ohio, the restaurant company’s hometown.
