Business Russia/Robolabs company was set up in Moscow in 1991. Mikhail Korin, then a young entrepreneur, went to the USA where he saw what appeared for him a new business : popcorn and the equipment for its popping. He filled a whole container with poppers and advertised on Soviet TV. The demand succeeded the best expectations! People were lining for popcorn machines several days on end. Most of them later made millions in this business. That’s how the history of our company began.

1996 saw the advent of modern cinema showing in Russia: trade centers with multiplexes, Dolby Surround, iMAX screens and, of course, modern concessions. We faced the current challenge and reconstructed the company in response to the needs of big movie distributors: launched the manufacture of popcorn cups, popcorn salt, glazes and corn treat premixes..
Own production of raw materials and food additives.
In 2009, our engineering team developed Vortex Popcorn ™ technology, creating a Robopop on its base . It revolutionized the whole popcorn industry!
Popcorn kernels are evenly distributed over the parabolic bottom of the machine internal chamber. The hot air vortex inside the chamber creates a constant rotation of kernels around the chamber axis with its simultaneous mixing. This process ensures uniform and fast heating and popping. The vortex air stream inside the chamber immediately swirls out the popped corn away from the hot zone, without over drying it. Have a look at how it works.
We spent a lot of effort in order to develop an ideal machine, meeting the requirements of customers. The existing latest version of the machine has been modified with the due account of the feedbacks from the customers. We thoroughly tested all the components and aggregates of the machine before it was exported and offered for its final use to our customers. We also provide full service and training how to service the equipment. You can find more information on Technical Support page
Evolution of Robopop since 2009
Starting from the first Robopop, innovations have become part of our philosophy. Robolabs is keen on becoming a global international company on the concession market. That is why we are developing new items which are non- existent in the portfolio of other suppliers. Our next hit was Robosugar caramelizer
In 2013 NBC called caramel popcorn "hot trend of the year" :
“Forget the butter and salt, connoisseurs are busy reinventing the crunchy kernel with a variety of new flavors" - NBC’s Kevin Tibbles reports, - "new flavor sensations are taking over the nation and consumers are craving twists to this whole grain treat. That's why gourmet popcorn is the 2013 Food Trend, popping up everywhere like: specialty shops, food trucks, weddings, fundraising drives, and restaurants.”
By that time, Robosugar 10 Auto has already been developed by Robolabs. Its distinctive features are :
- innovative method of cooling: popped corn is being cooled and separated on the moving mesh
- full automatism, guarantying permanent quality
- minimal human involvement in the process of manufacture
- use of our popcorn accessories.
Yes, we manufacture our own accessories for popcorn – various caramel and savory mixes, cheese pastes and corn treats. There are not many companies who produce the whole spectrum of supplies, and RoboLabs is one of them.
Previously, they required special knowledge and skills to cook gourmet popcorn. If the employee did the process incorrectly, the entire batch of products was sent to the garbage. Now the process has become fully automatic. Even now only Robolabs owns this technology. Our Robosugar machines are protected by patents in the Russian Federation, Europe and the USA.
One of our newest trends is - and we are not kidding - cotton candy. It seems it is difficult to come up with something new on this well - established market : there exist quite a lot of other manufacturers of candy floss machines; at that, some of them have been working for more than a century. But Robolabs engineers have managed to bring in innovations into this conservative market as well. November 2016 saw the first Robo Jet Floss models with a vertical floss flow .
The release of the first Robo JetFloss exploded the market and made Robolabs known on the mass market. Popcorn industry, evidently, is a market of professionals, requiring serious investment. Cotton candy market is much wider, where even a small entrepreneur can afford quality equipment. That is why, if you are thinking about a dealership, but cannot afford a serious investment, try to start with cotton candy. Fill out the application form and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Robolabs will not stay on the achieved. At present we are developing a powerful popcorn line to produce up to 500kg/h . We also design new deep fryers with Fastron Control panels, new grills for Fast Food sector and other equipment. This means that our dealers will always find what to offer their customers!
