Frozen treats served up by a robot

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Students and staff at Texas State University will soon find a new dessert option at the campus’s Jones Dining Hall – one of the university’s busiest. But this new option comes with a robotically-precise twist – it will be served up by a state-of-the-art, completely autonomous Reis & Irvy’s robotic vending kiosk.

Reis & Irvy’s-branded signature robot characters of the same name can dispense servings of frozen yogurt, ice cream, gelato and sorbet topped with a selection of up to six delicious toppings while you wait in under 60 seconds – perfect for busy students and faculty on the go.

The robots are completely unattended, so there are no employees to deal with, and each delicious serving is made precisely to your specifications. With self-checkout touch screen ordering and payment options galore (from cash and credit cards to Google Wallet, Apple Pay and even Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies), this robotic yogurt and desert vendor is sure to appeal to students’ love of technology and convenience.     

“Choosing from a vast array of flavors and toppings, Reis & Irvy’s offers you not only the most convenient, but also the best quality frozen yogurt provided by Dannon.  What’s more, robotic delivery significantly reduces food handling and safety concerns, and the robot is capable of operating 24 hours a day – any time you find yourself in need of a freshly made frozen treat. We are proud and excited to introduce our delicious frozen treats, delivered to all students and staff on the Texas State campus,” owner of Reis & Irvy’s of San Antonio Paul Gorman said.

Reis & Irvy’s of San Antonio will be serving up delicious treats at the Jones Dining Hall at Texas State University.  Students, staff and anyone interested in seeing what many are describing as the “future of food retail” are encouraged to stop in for a delicious treat, served up by a Reis & Irvy’s robot.
