Nourish + Bloom Market, an independent grocery store, is giving Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology a run for its money. The store, founded by Jilea and Jamie Michael Hemmings, utilises their proprietary tech stack to support an autonomous grocery shopping experience. In addition to autonomous shopping, Nourish + Bloom Market offers delivery robots for online orders. The Hemmings family’s journey into the grocery business began when their son was diagnosed with autism, and they embarked on a mission to provide healthy food conveniently. Nourish + Bloom Market aims to open more locations and become the first autonomous grocery store to accept SNAP EBT benefits, all while inspiring the next generation of black and brown entrepreneurs.
