Pizza Vending Machines Are Coming to America [VIDEO]
Ever walk by a vending machine and wish you could get a pizza? If you have, then you are in luck because Let’s Pizza is coming to the United States. Let’s Pizza is a pizza vending machine that will make & bake you a pizza in 3 minutes. According to the LA Times:
The brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghel, the machine will be distributed by A1 Concepts, based out of the Netherlands. It’s expected to hit our shores later this year,according to the industry website Pizza Marketplace. The company is expected to set up its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta.
What is remarkable about the new machine is that it truly makes pizzas to order, including kneading and rolling out the dough. (The video says the leavening takes place in a blistering hot infra-red oven.) There are more than 200 toppings from which to choose. The machine can even accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, such as those for vegetarian and Kosher diets.
“Let’s Pizza is a huge success in Europe and especially in Italy. That was proof for us that we have a very good pizza,” A1 Concepts Chief Executive Ronald Rammer told Pizza Marketplace.
The pizza arrives in an insulated take-away box. The machine takes cash and credit cards. A 10-inch pizza will sell for about $5.95.
They anticipate that these machines will go in malls, hospitals, hotels, and more. Would you use one? I have to admit, I would probably try it just to see what it tasted like.
