Is a Pizza Vending Machine Coming Soon to Your Hometown?
Pizza vending machine. Three words in the English language that sound so sweet when they come together. Box Brands, a tech company in Los Angeles, is working on a Pizza Box , a machine that will be able to make and distribute a pizza pie in under 90 seconds. The pizza that comes out of this pizza vending machine will initially be frozen, and will come in several varieties including a regular and breakfast pizza. Each pie costs $5, and is made using something like a speedy pizza oven, as opposed to a microwave.
"The idea behind the Pizza Box is to introduce the concept as the new drive-thru "ATM" or "AFFM" —Automated Fast Food Machine — as we like to call it, like you would see in a large retail parking lot," Pizza Box representative Joey Pomerenke told Business Insider. "For the first time ever, Americans will have a pizza drive-thru option, not just burgers and tacos."
Our opinion? If we can have cupcake ATMs, than we can certainly live (and thrive!) in a world with pizza vending machines. The first Pizza Boxes will be hitting the streets of Los Angeles in the next five months, while Burrito Box will soon be expanding nationwide.
