Baked in Front of Your Eyes – Bread that is Fresh, Healthy, Preservative Free and Eco-Friendly

The BreadBot Mixes, Forms, Proofs, Bakes and Cools Bread All on its Own

Retailers Can Benefit from Potential 20-Fold Lift in Profit Margins by Cutting Out Distribution Process

The Wilkinson Baking Company, a family-owned business that is transforming the world of baking one loaf at a time by pioneering a first-of-its-kind, fully automated breadmaking machine.  The BreadBot, a machine that goes to from flour to loaf all on its own, harnesses the marvels of modern technology to take us back to the old world with its artisan bread that is tasty and nutritious.

Compared to center aisle bread, The BreadBot produces loaves that are fresher, healthier, preservative free and eco-friendly. The BreadBot mixes, forms, proofs, bakes and cools ten loaves of bread per hour – all on its own and is capable of making most varieties of bread that require dry ingredients – including white, wheat, whole wheat, nine grain, sourdough and honey oat. The bread can even be organic if preferred!

BY THE NUMBERS – HOW THE BREADBOT MEASURES UP

  • Produces 10 loaves per hour
  • Time to first completed loaf is 90 minutes
  • New loaves produced every 6 minutes
  • Operates up to a 24 hour duty cycle
  • Yields a maximum of 235 loaves per day
  • Requires about 30 minutes for daily cleaning

“Bread is a staple of American life. But in most supermarkets today, it has lost its emotional connection with the shopper,” said Randall Wilkinson, CEO of The Wilkinson Baking Company. “In the age of home delivery, The BreadBot attracts consumers back to the store because it delivers fresh, delicious bread that is produced with theater and engagement. We’re so excited with The BreadBot this year and to demonstrate how we have increased a retailers’ bread sales by more than 30 percent while also decreasing the environmental impact.”

Retailers using The BreadBot can benefit from a potential 20-fold lift in bottom line profit margins through the elimination of the costly current bread distribution process, as well benefiting from increased consumer interest and maximized employee productivity. Grocers can get a head start on their daily production demands by scheduling The BreadBot to start baking hours before they open. And, as nearly half of topline revenue of a commercial baker is spent on the process of transport from factory oven to store shelf and related out-of-date product waste, The BreadBot is disrupting commercial baking and helping the environment through the elimination of brick and mortar facilities and distribution overhead.

Most food providers – including grocery stores, convenience stores, schools, the military and more – can benefit from the compact 22-square-foot BreadBot, which is more automated than a $75 million bread factory.
