eatsa guests can order their meals via a first-of-its-kind automated food pick-up system featuring a collection of glass door “cubbies” that display personalized graphics, producing a customized meal within minutes. Customers can also skip the line by ordering through the eatsa mobile app. eatsa’s delicious, hearty bowls are great for quick breakfast, lunch and dinner options that provide a substantial amount of protein and are served in as quickly as 90 seconds.
“Customers are looking for a new take on fast food and eatsa fills that void by combining the speed and affordability of fast food with delicious flavors and premium wholesome ingredients,” says eatsa CEO Tim Young. “Besides providing delicious food to happy customers, we want to dispel two common food service notions: that food served fast must be junk food and that healthy food is always more expensive.” “
