Nothing beats the savory flavors and mouth-watering fragrance of a fresh pizza. Pizza ranks near the top of any list of favorite easy-to-buy and easy-to-make kitchen delights that can be either a meal or a treat. And can you think of any better food to serve at a party?\n\n\n\nYou can\u2019t beat pizza for convenience, but there's a new option in the vending world that takes that convenience to a whole 'nother level: enter stage left, the almighty pizza vending machine!\n\n\n\nThe pizza vending machine has automated cooking procedures and times down to perfection, producing insanely good pizzas made by an auto-timed oven and a few robotic arms housed conveniently within a single vending machine. These 24\/7 pizza parlors are the pizza-fanatics dream!\n\n\n\nLet's get into a bit more detail on this right away!\n\n\n\nWho invented the pizza vending machine?\n\n\n\nClaudio Torghele finished the first prototype machine in 2003. A former pasta salesman, Torghele realized that it was possible for a vending machine to make pizzas even more conveniently available.\n\n\n\nHe has since gone on to make the Let\u2019s Pizza pizza vending machine, a commercially available machine that cooks pizzas on demand in a few minutes.\n\n\n\nHow does the pizza vending machine work?\n\n\n\nUp to 90 pizza bases are kept chilled inside; the machine adds your toppings and places the pizza into its oven. This takes from 3-5 minutes and produces a cooked pizza in a box through a letterbox-style slot. The customer does not see any of the cooking.\n\n\n\nIn fact, you can see an example of this in the video below from Orchard Road in Singapore:\n\n\n\nThere aren\u2019t a large number of pizza vending machine manufacturers, and their products vary. You can expect the vending machine to accept cash or cards.\n\n\n\nSome pizza vending machines are pretty much what you\u2019d expect when you think of the typical vending machine. They contain a number of pre-cooked frozen pizzas that are heated up for a few minutes and then dispensed. These are convenient but seem to be hardly much more than a microwave oven.\n\n\n\nThe first and most interesting pizza vending machine is manufactured by Mr. Torghele\u2019s company called Let\u2019s Pizza. His unique invention enables you to feel like you\u2019re your own pizza maker and dispenses a fresh, piping hot pizza in about three minutes in its own neat cardboard box.\n\n\n\nHow does the Let\u2019s Pizza vending machine work?\n\n\n\nYou get to make your selection from a handful of pizza toppings and then watch it all happen.Flour is poured into a drum, and then a little bit of water is added to form a doughThe drum spins around to form the dough into a ball, which is then pressed into a pizza-sized discDelicious tomato paste and cheese are addedThe pizza slides into an infrared ovenThe baked pizza is packagedThree minutes later, you have your fresh pizza\n\n\n\nThe price of vending machine pizza will vary according to ingredients and by manufacturer, but you can usually get a hot pizza for between $5 and $10.\n\n\n\nCan you get money back from a pizza vending machine?\n\n\n\nPizza vending machines are usually serviced by the same companies that install and take care of other vending machines, so if there\u2019s ever a problem you can call them to get your money back. You can usually find their name near where you put in your money or swipe your card, or else on the side of the machine.\n\n\n\nCan you start a pizza vending machine business?\n\n\n\nYes, you can. The keys to making money in the vending machine business are to have good locations and to have more than one machine. You might be able to make money with a single machine, but you\u2019ll need more than one \u2013 and the more, the better \u2013 if you want to run a successful business.\n\n\n\nThe average person drops about $25.00 \u2013 $30.00 a year into vending machines, and the average transaction is less than $2.00. The typical vending machine grosses around $300.00 each month. You need to deduct the cost of purchasing and maintaining your machines, plus the cost of whatever you\u2019re selling, any other overhead, and, of course, your taxes.\n\n\n\nHow much is a Let\u2019s Pizza machine?\n\n\n\nYou should be prepared to invest more than $30,000 to own one of these outstanding Let\u2019s Pizza pizza-making-and-vending machines.\n\n\n\n\nAre there pizza vending machines in Italy?\n\n\n\nMama mia! You\u2019ll find pizza vending machines nestled among the many other vending machines that are steadily gaining in popularity throughout Europe. Vending machine pizza doesn\u2019t offer all the variety you can get at your local pizza parlor or in the frozen section at the grocery store, but what you get is fast and tasty.\n\n\n\n\nConclusion\n\n\n\nPizza vending machines are growing in popularity because they can conveniently provide customers with delicious food at a reasonable price. Some pizza vending machines use fresh ingredients and actually mix and bake the pizza. Others just heat up frozen pies. You can go into business for yourself by owning and then placing machines in your community.
