RoboBurger Opens Its First New York Higher Ed Location

RoboBurger, the world’s first fully autonomous robotic burger chef in a box, with the support of Chartwells Higher Education, is opening its first higher ed location at St John’s University in Queens, New York. RoboBurger will give students 24/7 access to freshly grilled burgers.


RoboBurger’s mission is to improve access to freshly cooked food.

The robot is built with a grill, toaster, condiment dispenser and even a dishwashing function – a fully autonomous restaurant in miniature.

This allows RoboBurger to function 24/7, just like a vending machine, with no opening or closing times. 

RoboBurger launched its first pop-up location in March 2022 in Newport Mall in Jersey City.

Since then, it’s taken customer feedback and has improved its burger taste and cooking time.

The current RoboBurger 2.0 unit is cooking a burger in 4 to 5 minutes, and even quicker when the grill is hot. It uses only premium ingredients like Angus Beef patties.


RoboBurger is working with some of the largest companies in the US to help them improve their food offerings by providing people with access to freshly cooked food, 24 hours a day, without having to leave the building, whether it’s a university, workplace, hospital or transportation hub.
