The Sweetgreen Infinite Kitchen system robotically assembles the salads and bowls Sweetgreen customers crave—up to 500 of them an hour, 50% faster than humans can. Consumers order using a tablet that instructs the robotic production line to drop ingredients, prepared by human team members, into bowls.

Eventually, co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman says all new Sweetgreen outlets will come with an Infinite Kitchen.
