STOP EVERYTHING: The first Pizza ATM has arrived!
Guys, dreams really do come true. We’ve all heard of Cupcake ATMs, but now America has their first Pizza ATM!
Ohio’s Xavier University is the groundbreaking institution offering this tasty treat. As Time reports, the Pizza ATM (which is sort of more of a vending machine but it totally still counts) offers hot pizza 24 hours a day, seven days a week with just the touch of a button. The infamous “freshmen fifteen” might just become the “freshmen thirty.”
A full 12-inch pizza costs $9 (which is a small price to pay for such perfection). The ATM itself is pretty simple. You choose your toppings on the touchscreen and it delivers a “fresh-baked pizza” through a very special pizza slot within three minutes (thanks to its magical internal convection oven). About 70 pizzas are stored in the ATM at any given time, but they may be restocking fast — especially because, according to Cincinnati.com, the only other pizza options available to students is Domino’s.
We have to admit, this pizza ATM looks pretty awesome.
“It is the best pizza I’ve ever had, and I hate to admit that as a New Yorker,” Jennifer Paiotti, marketing director of XU’s auxiliary services, told WCPO Cincinnati.
That’s high praise, indeed.
It’s crazy to think that this brilliant contraption was once a mere normal vending machine.
It seems Xavier University staff are having fun with the concept. And can you blame them? After all, is a pretty revolutionary idea.
We sure hope our local institutions get themselves a Pizza ATM, stat. We’re hungry!
