Zume Pizza Launches World’s First Food Delivery Vehicle That Bakes Pizza en Route to Your Door
Former Shake Shack and Microsoft Xbox alums introduce patented technology to deliver pizza that is ‘Baked On The Way™’ to arrive at the peak of freshness
Zume Pizza, the only company where robots and pizza nerds work together to make and deliver America’s favorite food, have taken their blend of culinary chops and technology to the streets by announcing the world’s first Food Delivery Vehicle that cooks en route.
Starting in Mountain View, California, Zume Pizza’s patented Food Delivery Vehicle uses ‘Baked On The Way™’ (BOTW) technology in the form of 56 specially designed ovens to deliver pizza fresher and faster than ever before. By using BOTW technology, dwell time -- or the period of time a pizza is spent outside the oven while en route for delivery -- is eliminated. This enables the company to make pizza at half the fat and 40 percent fewer calories, without chemicals or preservatives typically used to prolong shelf life, or in the case of traditional pizza delivery, the time your order sits in the back seat of a car before it’s delivered. Additionally, since the pizzas are baking in the Food Delivery Vehicle while on the way to a customer’s door, as opposed to food sitting in between preparation and delivery, Zume Pizza delivers faster than other delivery services.
“Zume Pizza is delivering the freshest pizza possible in every sense. Not only do we use BOTW technology to cook en route so that pizzas arrive straight out of the oven, but all of our ingredients are sourced from local farmers to ensure we’re providing the highest quality food free of preservatives,” said Julia Collins, co-founder and co-CEO.
Motivated by a desire to improve the food delivery experience and make an impact on the $39 billion a year pizza industry, long-time friends Julia Collins and Alex Garden founded Zume Pizza. Julia, a veteran restaurateur, and Alex, an inventor and former Zynga president and general manager XBox Live, founded the company in their quest to create the future of food delivery.
“We’re starting with pizza, but the implications for BOTW technology extends to the entire food delivery industry. It reduces the need to use artificial ingredients to preserve ’freshness,’ said Alex Garden, co-founder and co-CEO of Zume Pizza. “By eliminating dwell time, we can make pizza with locally sourced, chemical-free ingredients, so that customers don’t have to compromise quality for convenience.”
When customers place an order, a team of proprietary pizza-making robots and culinary experts work collaboratively to prepare each pie at the company’s central kitchen. There, each pizza is baked in an 800-degree oven before moving to the Food Delivery Vehicle where it’s then baked for 3.5 minutes just before arriving at your door.
