Pizza Vending Machine? Yes, Hot, Fresh Pizza from a machine!
Vending machines are nothing new, but ones that dispense fresh, piping-hot pizza certainly are.
Pizzabox is a 6-foot-high vending machine that serves up fresh (not frozen) handcrafted 10-inch pizzas for $5 each. Pizzabox uses a 800-degree oven, so that pizza is ready 90 seconds after it is ordered — complete with knife, fork, parmesan, oregano, red peppers, a wet towelette and a napkin.
While Pizzabox is still being tested, the target date to release the vending machines is early 2015.
“We are initially launching it as the first-ever drive-thru pizza experience,” Koci said. Indoor locations will mainly consist of airports and colleges, with University of Southern California being the first test spot.
