Food ordering and delivery platform GrubHub has announced that it has partnered with Starship Technologies to launch a robot food delivery service at the Sam Houston State University campus in Huntsville, Texas.
Self-driving robotic delivery vehicles maker Starship said that its fleet of autonomous, on-demand robots will be delivering orders from eight campus eateries, including Chick-fil-A, Panda Express, Pastabilities, Starbucks, Steak n Shake, Subway, Taco Sabroso and The Brisket Burger Co.
Grubhub campus partnerships senior director Adam Herbert said: “Robot delivery solves the unique challenges of accessing hard-to-reach areas that come from operating on a college campus.
“With Starship’s robots, students can enjoy a fun, new way to order their favourite meals right to their door—whether that be the library, their dorm, academic hall, or another campus building.
“Offering this type of delivery further improves the Grubhub dining experience as we continue to provide innovative solutions for students and our campus partners.”
The two companies already provide robot food delivery services at the University of Kentucky, Fairfield University, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Wayne State University and Southern Methodist University.
