German foodtech company GoodBytz has successfully secured €12 million in a Series A funding round. The company specializes in developing robotic kitchens that empower professional chefs to efficiently prepare high-quality and healthy food. One of the notable highlights is the introduction of GoodBytz’s Robotic Kitchen Assistants in the world of food delivery services. As of now, the first delivery service ghost kitchen with the GoodBytz Robotic Kitchen Assistant is ranked among the top 15% of the most popular Lieferando restaurants in Germany.
The funding round was led by Oyster Bay, a prominent investor with a strong presence in the food industry. Additionally, Block Group, a Hamburg-based food tradition brand, joined as an investor. Both Oyster Bay and Block Group recognized the transformative potential of GoodBytz’s robotic kitchen technology for professional kitchens.
The key goal of this €12 million investment is to further develop the Robotic Kitchen Assistant and expand its reach. By 2025, GoodBytz aims to produce over 100 Robotic Kitchen Assistants, contributing to the transformation of professional kitchens across the world. The company also plans for international expansion in the coming year.
GoodBytz’s Robotic Kitchen Assistant enables diverse menu options, providing customers with a wide array of dishes from various cuisines. It’s designed to be highly customizable, and customers can interact with it through a touchscreen interface. The device can prepare everything from ramen and salads to porridge and Kaiserschmarrn. The innovation eliminates the need for advanced programming skills and can accommodate special customer requests effortlessly.
The company is set to expand its team, expecting to grow to 60 employees by the end of 2023 and 90 employees by the end of 2024. As part of its growth strategy, GoodBytz plans to open a flagship store in Hamburg in early 2024.
GoodBytz’s technology aims to revolutionize the restaurant industry by combining the culinary expertise of professional chefs with the efficiency and precision of robotics, offering customers a diverse and customizable dining experience.
