A Robot Pizza-Making Company Is Silicon Valley's Latest Obsession

•, by Tyler Durden

 The company, which uses proprietary trucks to deliver robot-made fresh pizzas to Palo Alto, Stanford and Mountain View, and claims to have pioneered a robot-assisted technique for pressing pizza dough in a perfect circle in just nine seconds, previously raised over $23 million from AME Cloud Ventures, Maveron, SignalFire, and Kortschak Investments.

Zume is one of a growing number of "food automation" startups popping up in the Bay Area fusing cooking with technology. It utilizes big trucks outfitted with ovens and pizza-cooking robots that deliver fresh food to customers. Zume says its model helps it cut down on overhead costs like rent, and that robots can replace humans in areas where the tasks are unsafe, boring, or arduous.
