MIT alumni redefine the restaurant experience with the introduction of robotics.
For fellow Boston natives this story might be old or perhaps it’s your first time hearing of it. Regardless, Spyce has become a piece of monumental history of 21st century innovation. Spyce is a prime example of how the dreams of students are becoming reality, impacting, and building the future we know and call as today. Spyce is also something that really highlights the primary mission of JV Prospects. It’s a success story that we believe is just one small gear of a machine that is churning the creation of the future and we want to be the ones who oil each gear. Yes this is a weird metaphor so let’s move on.
Spyce was a concept derived from MIT graduates Michael Farid, Brady Knight, Luke Schlueter, and Kale Rogers who felt that there needed to be a better alternative of getting food that’s quick, healthy, and also at the same time cheap. The solution to this problem was to create robots to cook for them and they did just that. By utilizing robotics and electrical conduction to cook, this conceptually meant that meals could be made quickly, stay healthy, and stay consistent in quality.
With the creation of the robot chefs and the logistics of how this business would run, the MIT students sought out Michelin Star Chef Daniel Boulud and brought him into the action. The moment Chef Boulud agreed and came aboard marked a revolution in the food industry in America. Combining top quality with the consistent cost-effective efficiency of robotics only spells out success and this success is what evolved into the Spyce we all know and love in the heart of Boston.
Eating at Spyce doesn’t just taste incredible and isn’t just about being affordable. More than ever, eating at Spyce is about having a magical experience. At Spyce, the customer digitally orders their choice of dine, then they can fully see how the robot chefs prepare and cook your personal meal out in the open for all to see. The sight is a glimpse into the endless possibilities of the future that lies ahead, the legendary intersection of mankind and robotics.
It’s amazing how a common college late night problem of being a bit-hungry and wanting something quick and affordable to eat could transform the entire way we look to innovate in the food industry. Just recently Spyce has secured $24.8 million in funding, been named in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list, and plans to expand beyond Boston.
