Wow Bao, a fast casual concept based in Chicago that has offered self-serve kiosks since 2009, will deploy Automated Retail Technologies’ Just Baked Hot Food kiosks, according to a press release.
The partnership launches today with 50 kiosks in 24 cities offering Wow Bao favorites such as Teriyaki Bao, Mongolian Beef Bao, Chicken Dumplings and Coconut Custard Bao.
Wow Bao will begin its roll-out in hospitals, hotels, bars, schools, airports and casinos. Florida and Georgia are the first markets to launch, with plans to increase the footprint across the U.S. and Canada through 2022 and 2023.
“After seven years of research and development, we are excited to conveniently offer Wow Bao’s signature items via Just Baked’s Hot Food Vending machines in otherwise food desert locations,” Geoff Alexander, Wow Bao’s President and CEO, said in the press release.
