Ono Food has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s first mobile restaurant leveraging advanced robotic technology.
The mobile restaurant serves, for instance, smoothie blends within 60 seconds and uses 28 times less water compared to traditional smoothie operators.
The mobile restaurant has over 100 sensors installed to monitor volume and temperature, thereby reducing operational and inventory waste.

The mobile restaurant has been created in partnership with automation and logistics firms including Tesla, SpaceX, Zume Pizza, Café X, Instacart and l2f.
Stephen Klein, CEO of Ono Food, said: “We’re excited to be launching our first market in our backyard, sunny Los Angeles.
“Fast food options usually fall into two buckets: fast, healthy, and unaffordable, or fast, unhealthy, and affordable and nothing in between. Combining our backgrounds in tech, automation, and culinary fine dining, we knew we could fill this void to give more people access to healthy, high-quality food.”
While Ono’s food truck is powered by complex technology, ordering an Ono Blend is incredibly simple. Customers simply approach Ono’s ordering kiosk, place their custom order, and watch as robotic systems create their blends from scratch. Within 60 seconds, blends are ready at Ono’s pick-up area.
Ono Blends use sustainable and organic ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, seeds, nut butters and coconut milk.
