Making Jell-O shots is a long process for something that should be so simple and enjoyable. Food and Beverage Innovations has come up with a solution for this problem: Jevo.
Jevo is a machine that is similar to a Keurig because of its gelatin pod system. This machine can make 20 alcoholic, or, if you prefer, nonalcoholic, Jell-O shots in just 10 minutes versus the hours it takes to make them by hand. All you have to do is choose a flavor and insert the appropriate pod. Jevo will do the rest.
Currently, Jevo is designed to be marketed to businesses only. The makers are hoping to sell it to chain restaurants, bars, nightclubs, family entertainment centers, and major casinos once they launch it in the first quarter of next year. Food and Beverage Innovations has a goal of distributing and installing 20,000 units in the United States, with its launch being at the Nightclub and Bar Show in Las Vegas. It will be publically displayed there at the end of this month.
Jevo currently has the capability to produce 15 different flavors. Some of those flavors include grape, strawberry, lemon, margarita, cherry, pina colada, watermelon, banana cream pie, coffee bean, and strawberry lemonade.
The design of Jevo is made so that it will be displayed on a bar in view of the customers. On the sides and the front of the machine are LED screens. The front screen is touchscreen and gives the bartender step-by-step instructions for how to make the Jell-O shots. That screen, and the others, can display advertisements to help increase the sales of the establishment. In addition to the screen, the Jevo has two reservoirs that have a combined 50 ounce capacity, a self-cleaning system, and the ability to connect to Wi-Fi.
In the future, you might be able to own a Jevo at home. Food and Beverage Innovations is working on making two other models. One of those models will be targeted to the average consumer and the other will be targeted to the medical community. The Jevo made for home use will offer “Jell-O snacks for kids, edible cocktails and exotic desserts for adults” while the medical one 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 date of these two models is unknown at the moment.
