Zume is a food production company that aims to leverage robotic automation to help reduce the staff needed in restaurants. The company is best known for its subsidiary Zume Pizza, which makes and delivers fresh pizzas with the help of robots. Zume owns a patent for delivery trucks capable of cooking food while it’s en route to customers. The startup's proprietary trucks are loaded in part by robots and have ovens that fire up on demand, via a remote cloud signal. The technology allows Zume to operate legally despite some laws preventing food truck companies from preparing food while a delivery vehicle is in motion.
In addition to delivering pizza, Zume creates technology to manage perishable supply chain logistics and sees an opportunity to partner with companies that wish to provide freshly cooked menu items to customers. Through its Ratio Platform, Zume aims to provide an end-to-end solution for food companies with a flexible system to cook en route for delivery, predict inventory, and meet customer demand.
Zume was founded in 2015 and is based in Mountain View, California. Notable investors in Zume include the SoftBank Vision Fund, AME Cloud Ventures and SignalFire.
