Shopping stores are poised to be disrupted by the imminent arrival of Nourish + Bloom Market.
According to a news release, the Fayetteville, Georgia-based market, created by Jamie Michael and Jilea Hemmings, will open in December as the first Black-owned autonomous grocery shop in the United States.
Pursuing a career in the food sector was sped up by their oldest son being diagnosed with autism. Being diagnosed fueled their conviction that everyone deserves to eat well, and they are working to make that happen one step at a time.
Providing a quick and entertaining experience, Nourish + Bloom Market promises to serve nutritious food 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Having to queue, pay, and take groceries at the grocery store will not be experienced by customers, thanks to the flawless technology. Scanning the QR code from the Nourish + Bloom app to link their payment system is all the customers need to do.
According to a press release, Hemmings stated, “The future of grocery shopping is exciting.” “Shopping habits have changed because of technological advancements, particularly after COVID-19.”
Restricting physical touch through technology, Hemmings has built a sustainable food shopping experience that relies on human interaction. This is in response to how the epidemic has affected people’s buying of groceries.
Automating robotic delivery, which can adjust between hot and cold temperatures depending on delivery, is also available. Added to this, Hemming said that the robots could interact with customers.
Producing meats, baked products, dairy, and cooked meals, as well as everyday convenience items, are available at Nourish + Bloom. Everything available on the market will be made from minimally processed, high-quality components (no GMOs or High Fructose Corn Syrup).
