Grubhub and Kiwibot Partner for Robot Delivery on College Campuses

Kiwibot Grubhub partnership mobile robots last-mile delivery

Grubhub and Kiwibot, which develops last-mile robotic delivery services, have announced they will provide robot delivery services on college campuses across the U.S. Robot delivery will first be available at the University of North Dakota before rolling out to additional schools next semester, the companies said. Kiwibot joins Grubhub’s existing partners, including Cartken and Starship, on nearly a dozen campuses offering robot delivery.

“When it comes to the campus dining experience, we see robot delivery as a complementary offering to traditional delivery since the robots can navigate hard-to-reach areas on campuses,” said Adam Herbert, senior director of campus partnerships at Grubhub. “Our campus partners have been asking for us to help bring this delivery option to their school, and we are excited to partner with Kiwibot to expand this innovative and convenient type of delivery to more colleges across the country.”

“It is an exciting endeavor for Kiwibot to expand our partner base,” said Felipe Chávez, CEO of Kiwibot. “Our partnership with Grubhub means we’ll be able to provide an integrated delivery service that allows students to experience Kiwibot delivery right from Grubhub’s app. We are honored to bring innovative solutions to the University of North Dakota community with our disruptive robotic service that delivers meals, happiness and extraordinary moments.”

Students will be able to select this delivery via the Grubhub app from on-campus dining locations, including the Memorial Union Food court and Wilkerson Dining Center. Kiwibots can operate in snow and extreme weather conditions and can hold up to 25 pounds. They move at the same speed as a human walking pace. Grubhub partners with more than 250 college campuses across the United States.
