Wilkinson Baking Company Raises $3M Seed Funding

Wilkinson Baking Company, a Walla Walla, Wash.-based creator of a fully-automated commercial bread baking robot, closed a $3.0m seed funding.

Funds will primarily be used to build and deploy additional BreadBots.

Led by Paul Rhynard, CEO, Wilkinson Baking Company provides a commercial bread-baking robot named the BreadBot™. After several years of in-market pilots at seven grocery stores, in July 2022, the company deployed their first commercial-ready BreadBot™ into Andy’s Market in College Place, Wash. It is manufacturing and assembling additional BreadBots™ and expects to have 20 units deployed by early 2023.
