AUSTIN, Texas, U.S. — Briggo, creator of the world’s first gourmet, robotic barista, announces an agreement with Foxconn Industrial Internet (Fii), an established global leader in Industrial AI, cloud computing and supply chain management, to produce Briggo’s autonomous Coffee Hauses.
Briggo is the leader in “connected coffee;” a fully automated experience that allows people to create perfectly customized, gourmet coffee and tea on-demand 24/7. Frequently referred to as the “internet of coffee,” Briggo’s platform leverages cloud computing, robotics, a mobile application, and specialty ingredients to deliver a futuristic retail experience.
“Consumer demand for Briggo’s connected coffee experience has grown fast and it is time to scale-up our production capacity with this exciting global partnership,” said Briggo CEO Kevin Nater. “Foxconn Industrial Internet provides us the scale and speed necessary to revolutionize the global specialty coffee market.”
Briggo’s announcement of this new manufacturing partnership closely follows the successful launch of a new Coffee Haus in San Francisco International Airport and the company’s most recent news of partnering with SSP America to expand Briggo’s presence to airports throughout North America. Coupling these business development milestones with the enhanced production capabilities Fii offers, Briggo anticipates record-setting growth over the next 12 months. Additionally, Briggo has earned 21 patents for its technology and was ranked on Fast Company’s 2019 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies.
Foxconn Industrial Internet will leverage its expertise in smart manufacturing, supply chain management and global reach in implementing system production in the Wisconsin Valley Science and Technology Park in Mt. Pleasant, Wisconsin. This fully integrated value-added manufacturing capability will enable Briggo to achieve time to market with sustainable supply chain success.
“The Fii team is passionate about its commitment to produce made-in-America products,” said Fii USA President Foo-Ming Fu. “By adding Briggo to our customer portfolio, we now have the opportunity to produce a cutting-edge, cloud-based, robotic retail platform through smart manufacturing capabilities needed to support their aggressive growth plans.”
