Love piping hot pizza but can't be bothered with deliveries or germ-ridden pizza shops? You’re in luck! A Netherlands-based distributor known as A1 Concepts plans to bring pizza vending machines to the United States.
Set to debut in Atlanta later this year, A1 Concepts’ Let’s Pizza machines can create fresh, hot pizzas in less than three minutes. The machines use an infrared oven to cook pizza dough at over 700 degrees Fahrenheit, and customers can choose from a variety of toppings. The freshly-prepared pizzas even come in a neat, square box. The vending machines may especially appeal to germophobes as Let’s Pizza creations are “untouched by human hands.”
Let’s Pizza is already a success in Europe, particularly in Italy where the machines originated. If the pizza dispensers do well in Atlanta, A1 CEO Ronald Rammers will expand to a variety of locations throughout the U.S., particularly airports, amusement parks, grocery stores, and dorms (they'll make a killing). The suggested retrial price is an affordable $5.95, but you know airports and amusement parks will charge significantly more. $20 anyone?

What do you think about pizza vending machines? I’d give one a try.
