ATMs aren’t just for money anymore — university students across North America could be the first to get the Pizza ATM, a 24/7 purveyor of everyone’s favourite takeout food.
After a successful installment in an Ohio University last August, Paline (partnered with a manufacturer in France who first developed the machine in 2002) is now fielding inquiries for the Pizza ATM from businesses and colleges located in 20 states and Canada, GrubStreet reports.
So how does it work?
Operating 24/7, the machine houses 70 refrigerated 12” pies (with pre-cooked bases) at a time. An internal computer manages the best-before dates, temperatures and convection cooking times for different pizzas. The order is ready, dispensed in a pizza box, in just 3 minutes. Vending machines better watch their backs.
