Blendid, a leader in robotic food service solutions, has announced its collaboration with Thor’s Skyr to open the first-ever autonomous robotic kiosk locations offering skyr-based smoothies in the United States. Thor’s Skyr, an American-made skyr brand, utilizes innovative Icelandic methods that have been perfected over 1000 years and features all-natural ingredients. With the assistance of Blendid’s technology, these robotic kiosks will bring the delicious and nutritious skyr smoothies to consumers on the go.
“We’re excited to provide skyr-lovers with new conveniences to enjoy our refreshing and nutritious products,” said Unnar Beck Danielsson, CEO and co-founder of Thor’s Skyr. “Blendid’s robotic kiosks will allow us to scale faster and expand our product line, offering our lactose-free formula skyr blended smoothies.”
Thor’s Skyr, backed by actors Terry Crews, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, and Dylan Sprouse, along with Icelandic entrepreneur Unnar Beck Danielsson, has gained popularity due to its higher protein content and lower sugar compared to yogurt. With 21 grams of protein per 6-ounce cup for the plain flavor and 18 grams for the flavored options, Thor’s Skyr provides a delicious variety of flavors without the addition of sugar.
The collaboration between Blendid and Thor’s Skyr leverages Blendid’s food automation platform, foodOS®, which incorporates machine learning, robotics, and artificial intelligence. This innovative platform allows for on-demand customization of healthy quick-serve food options, making them easily accessible to consumers in various locations. Additionally, the autonomous kiosks operate 24/7 based on location traffic demands, providing convenience around the clock.
“As consumers increasingly seek quick, fresh, and nutritious food options, robotic solutions powered by AI are transforming the food service industry,” said Vipin Jain, CEO and co-founder of Blendid. “Blendid’s robotic smoothie kiosks enable food innovators like Thor’s Skyr to deliver fast, customizable, and nutritious on-the-go choices that consumers crave.”
