The restaurant chain is debuting an electric vehicle and app that combine the convenience of delivery with on-site cooking, aiming to curb common complaints of "soggy fries" or forgotten items

There's nothing worse than excitedly ordering take-out and then receiving soggy, lukewarm food. While restaurants and delivery services do their best to deliver the food as fresh as possible, more often than not the measures are minimally effective. Fast food chain Wayback Burger is looking to solve this issue with its recently debuted to-go vehicle that cooks the meal at the intended destination.

In collaboration with Tropos Technologies, the truck is reservable by Viddl-It, and can be used to cater events as well as simply order a meal. The trucks, which are 5 feet by 8 and a half, come fully equipped with refrigerators, freezers, griddles, fryers and more, in order to cook the meals wherever. They run on electric and propane with a battery, and will cost franchisees $35,000 to buy for their own stores.

“We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to support our franchisees and offer revenue-generating solutions they can then pass on to customers,” John Eucalitto, CEO of Wayback Burgers, says in a statement. “It’s basically private catering on demand. The food is made fresh on the spot,” addressing two common consumer complaints: that the food quality upon arrival isn't up to par, or that the delivery service forgot an item.
