How a video game wunderkind promised a robot revolution that mesmerized SoftBank but went off the rails: The inside story of Zume Pizza

Zume Pizza, the pizza-making robotics startup, spent its early days pitching investors and the public on an AI-powered robotic revolution at the hands of its robot fleet. But the revolution hit a snag, and in January, Zume announced that it was permanently shuttering Zume Pizza, the robotics division of the company, and laying off roughly 360 employees across multiple offices.

REVIEW: Pizza Hut Mozzarella Poppers Pizza

I once had a dream that Pizza Hut here in the U.S. offered a pizza with large crispy mozzarella sticks as the end crust. When I woke up and wiped away the drool from my mouth, which ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT happen all the time, I realized it was all a dream, and the bodily fluids stopped coming out of my mouth and started rolling down from my eyes. Pizza Hut’s Mozzarella Poppers Pizza is not the pizza of my salty dream. Instead of edges that are entirely made of crispy, breaded cheese sticks, the la...

Armed robber who face-planted into Pizza Hut door left DNA, cops say

In Las Cruces, New Mexico, police say they collected DNA from the spot where a suspect face-planted into a door while trying to escape.

REVIEW: Papa John’s Garlic Parmesan Crust

Papa John’s makes my favorite chain pizza. Before you @ me, hear me out: it has the perfect balance of flavors as the slightly sweeter pizza sauce is the perfect primer for the savory toppings and signature Garlic Sauce. Also, the texture of the pizza has the springy goodness of fresh bread. Since I’m a crust enthusiast, that’s pretty dang important to me. So, when Papa John’s launched its new garlic parmesan crust earlier this month, my crust purist self was a little skeptical. Why ruin a goo...

FedEx robot sent packing by NYC

FedEx’s autonomous delivery bot got a cold reception from New York City officials.

Zume, the robotic pizza maker that SoftBank valued at $1 billion, has lost several top execs and appears to have moved away from robots, even as it seeks new money

Since June, Zume Pizza, a SoftBank-backed startup valued above $1 billion, has lost several high-ranking executives, Business Insider has learned. The startup was developing a robotic arm to make pizza more efficiently when it took on $375 million in funding from SoftBank's private equity fund in November 2018. The round valued Zume higher than the most popular pizza chains in the United States combined. According to people familiar with the matter, Zume executive Kartik Ramachandran, who serv...

REVIEW: Great Value Dessert Pizzas (Apple Cinnamon, Pineapple, and S’mores)

Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening – Walmart has pizza for all the times! (That fits the tune, right? Did you sing along as you read it?
