Coming soon to a bar near you: Jevo, the Keurig for Jell-O shots

jevo
With the ability to produce 20 alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) Jell-O shots in 10 minutes, the Jevo is an innovative device that automates the process of making Jell-O shots with a Keurig-influenced gelatin pod system. Alternatively, the process of creating a tray of alcoholic Jell-O shots can take a minimum of three hours. In fact, many online recipes recommend allowing Jell-O shots to be placed in the refrigerator overnight.

Designed to be placed within a bar in plain view of customers, the device sports three LED screens positioned on the sides as well as the front. The front screen on the Jevo is touch-enabled and walks the bartender through making the shots. In addition, all screens can be used to display advertisements to increase sales within the establishment. The Jevo also includes two reservoirs with a 50 ounces capacity, a self-cleaning system and Wi-Fi connectivity, likely to tie into the automated inventory system.

Launching with at least 15 flavors, some of the early flavors include grape, strawberry, lemon, margarita, cherry, pina colada, watermelon, banana cream pie, coffee bean and strawberry lemonade. The machine is extremely accurate with alcohol pours as well, ideal for bars that want to avoid over pouring and potentially ruining the flavor of a Jell-O shot with too much alcohol.

Targeting commercial applications first within chain restaurants, bars, nightclubs and major casinos, the company launching the Jevo, Food and Beverage Innovations, wants to have at least 20,000 units installed within the U.S. market starting with the first units distributed in the first quarter of next year. To spur this goal, the Jevo will be displayed publicly at the Nightclub and Bar Show in Las Vegas at the end of the month.

Speaking about the Jevo, Food and Beverage Innovations CEO Jeff Jetton said “We saw an opportunity to help businesses maximize those profits by turning an archaic, manual and inconsistent process into one that’s fast, easy and profitable. We looked at the success of other automated machines like the Keurig and Sodastream, and realized we could apply that level of automation to jello and help drive revenue for bars, nightclubs, resorts, casinos, family entertainment centers and restaurants globally.”

Interestingly, Food and Beverage Innovations is also working on two other models of the Jevo targeted to the average consumer as well as the medical community. The home unit will offer “Jell-O snacks for kids, edible cocktails and exotic desserts for adults” and the healthcare model will “make protein-infused Jell-O for dialysis patients as well as vitamin-, electrolyte- and nutrient-infused Jell-O for use in hospitals and nursing homes.” The launch window for these two units is unclear at this point.

Detailed by Upstart, a successful pilot test of the healthcare model took place at a renal care center, specifically to add additional protein into Jell-O for patients. Hypothetically, any number of medications or vitamin supplements could be added to Jell-O for patients, ideal for any patient that has difficulty swallowing pills or simply dislikes taking medication.
