About the Company:

Food & Beverage Innovations was founded to revolutionize the manual process of making jello. We have invented Jevo, the first fully automated jello + edible shot maker. Our mission is to elevate the experience of making jello through innovation in product, process and technology. Jevo will launch in nightclubs, sports bars, resorts, casinos, family entertainment centers and gentleman’s clubs across North America in Q4 2015.

Jevo: The evolution of jello + edible shots

Jevo is the first fully automated jello + edible shot maker. Jevo revolutionizes the 4 to 5 hour process of making jello to less than 10 minutes, resulting in 20 ready to serve jello shots. With endless flavor possibilities, Jevo will launch with proprietary flavor pods in great tasting traditional, exotic and dessert flavors like Apple, Margarita and Celebration Cake.

How it works: Similar in concept to the Keurig and SodaStream: Choose your flavor, insert the flavor pod, select the spirit and press go. It’s that simple. It mixes, it chills, and you serve 20 jello shots in less than 10 minutes.
