Pizza Vending Machines: The Next Big Thing?
It seems the non-packaged food vending machine trend is not slowing, not one bit. We've all heard of cupcake vending machines. And, of course, there was the rise and fall and resurrection of Burritobox. Now we hear word of Let's Pizza, a pizza vending machine. Because, of course there would be a pizza vending machine. You don't want a dystopian future with no pizza, do you?? Alright then.
For now, Let's Pizza is only operating in the United Kingdom and Italy, but there have been rumors for years that the machines will debut in this country any minute.
Invented by Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghele, the machine makes pizza in about 2.5 minutes. The pizza is made from scratch — as in, the dough is mixed, the pizza topped, etc. The machine can make around 100 pizzas before it needs to be refilled.
Of course, the prospect of pizza vending machines shouldn't be all that thrilling to residents of L.A., seeing as we already have caviar vending machines.
See below for the vaguely creepy video about how Let's Pizza machines work.
