Weeks ago we learned about sushi machines that can automatically roll sushi faster than Japan’s best chefs; now the same concept has been applied to pizza. Italian inventor Claudio Torghel has created a pizza vending machine, which have already been implemented in Europe for the last three years.
These vending machines can make pizza from scratch in just two-and-a-half minutes. A1 Concepts, the distributor of these machines plans to bring them to the United States. The machines are called “Let’s Pizza,” and will be targeted towards malls, airports, supermarkets, colleges, and anywhere with large crowds. A1 Concepts is opening a U.S. headquarters in Atlanta, and vending machines are expected to roll out soon afterwards, with national deals in the works.
CEO Ronald Rammers says the machines create everything from scratch, combining the ingredients and using an infra-red oven to produce pizzas so quickly. The pizzas are also available with various toppings, stocked to make 200 pizzas and connected to the internet to control inventories. On average they sell for $5.95 each, but prices may vary depending upon the location.
Rammers let it slip that a large theme park in Florida is already interested in “Let’s Pizza”, and in other locations they will be managed on local and national levels. A1 Concept fully expects “Let’s Pizza” to be a success, noting how well received it has been in Italy and Europe over the last few years.
