(Scroll down for video) A fast-food restaurant in California, successfully eliminated all interactions between its customers and employees by setting up as a fully automated giant vending machine.

Fast food was redefined with the opening of eatsa, which offers bold, fresh and flavorful customized quinoa bowls that are prepared blazing fast and at an unbeatable price point.

Located at 121 Spear Street in San Francisco, eatsa delivers a fully automated personalized experience that offers the speed and affordability of fast food combined with delicious flavors, nutritious ingredients and hearty portions.

“Eatsa is reinventing fast food by combining the speed and affordability of fast food with the delicious flavors and nutritious ingredients of premium fast casual,” said Tim Young, co-founder of eatsa.

“By developing new technology to automate every aspect of the food experience, we are able to deliver a product with the best qualities of premium food at a price point that is accessible to everyone,” he said.

Eatsa is a refreshing change from sandwiches, burritos and salads, and the perfect solution for time-crunched urbanites.

Eatsa serves up tasty dishes for $6.95 with quinoa as the basis for each bowl. Created with wholesome nutritious ingredients, eatsa provides an entire meal’s worth of complete protein in each bowl.

Eatsa features a simple and interactive ordering experience, a virtual cashier and no wait time.

Eatsa’s unique virtual cashier remembers every customer, allowing for highly personalized interaction and tailored suggestions.

A first of its kind automated food pick-up system features a collection of glass door “cubbies.”

When a customer’s meal is ready, the cubby door transforms to display personalized graphics and presents the food at the touch of a button.

This automated system ensures every customer receives their food when and how they want it.

“It’s essentially lunch on demand,” said Scott Drummond, co-founder.

“Eatsa’s Order Anywhere concept translates to zero wait time for customers, no more waiting in line, no more $12 lunch salads, but delicious food that is nutritious, affordable, and quick,” Drummond said.
