On-demand-lunch at Ohio State University

Grubhub and Yandex SDG are deploying a robot delivery technology at the Ohio State University starting from the fall semester. Students and profs can order their lunch from on-campus dining cafeterias via the Grubhub app, which will be delivered by one of the 50 Yandex robots. The courier can store up to multiple pizzas or cups of coffee and a bagel, keeping all at the proper temperature. Read more

“We’re excited to bring this cutting-edge and efficient delivery experience to students at The Ohio State University. OSU and Grubhub have worked together for years to offer students a variety of ways to enjoy the food they love on campus. Now we’re building on our efforts to enhance the dining experience through Yandex’s rover technology for quicker and easier deliveries”

“We pride ourselves on offering an exceptional dining experience to students, and we’re always looking to provide new ways to make getting food on campus as convenient as possible”

in Zia Ahmed, Senior Director, Dining Services at the Ohio State University

“By partnering with Grubhub, we can bring robotic delivery to some of the people who need it most – students, researchers and professors who are short on time. Not only do the rovers enhance the current food delivery options, but open new possibilities for smarter, better and faster dining. Imagine ordering morning coffee and grabbing it from a robot waiting at your doorstep as you head out to class, or studying in a park with friends and requesting a rover to roll up and deliver snacks. We’re thrilled to support making these possibilities a reality”
