For teaBOT there’s no better home base than Toronto: international tea drinkers, long winters and an inherent sociability. But that hasn’t kept the Toronto-based startup from expanding its robot army beyond the ecosystem here to cities like Palo Alto and Chicago.
Last week, teaBOT — a U of T Engineering startup which sells robot-blended, customized cups of loose-leaf tea — opened its newest location in the very first 365 by Whole Foods Market™ store in Los Angeles. There are now six teaBOTs in operation across North America, and the company has yet to celebrate its third birthday.
For some, the acts of growing, cooking and eating food are savoured and sacred; for others, they’re a means of survival. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, there is likely a company out there that is vying for your business. Many of these companies are fundamentally changing what, how and why we eat.
