Stop & Shop has deployed a bread-making robot that enables customers to buy a warm loaf baked virtually on the spot.

The Stop & Shop store in Milford, Mass., now offers The Mini Bakery from Wilkinson Baking Co. Also known as “The Breadbot,” the glass-cased unit mixes, forms, proofs, bakes and cools 10 loaves of sandwich-style artisan bread per hour. Customers can see the entire process.

At the Stop & Shop store, the Breadbot is located in the bakery department. Varieties baked by self-service unit include white, wheat, whole wheat, nine-grain, sourdough and honey oat. Availability will vary based on demand.
