Video: Pizza Vending Machines Could Be The Next Big Thing
Pizza vending machines could be the next big thing when it comes to earning passive income. Mac’s Pizza Pub in the Clifton neighborhood of Cincinnati has been testing one such machine recently, and there has been a line around the block with people hoping to do their own taste test.
According to an article by Emily Sanderson on KCCI.com, the owner of this establishment not only has a couple of machines right in the window of the restaurant, they are about to be placed all over the city, including a bunch of them at the University of Cincinnati.
Sanderson’s article explains that Mac’s Pizza Pub vending machines make a pizza with homemade ingredients in about three minutes. Customers can pay for the pie through the restaurant’s mobile app, or with a credit or debit card right their on the vending machine’s touch screen. Mac’s vending machines not only serve up hot pizza pies, they can also serve up chicken wings, cookies, cheesecake, and more.
Here’s a news story from about a year ago I found on YouTube, which highlights an entrepreneur who was creating his own pizza vending machine. Just wanted you to see how these things work.
Pretty cool, and certainly convenient if you want to grab a bite to eat in a hurry. But have you ever had a great meal from a vending machine? I know there’s a “Pizza ATM” machine serving up slices of pizza at the Linq Hotel and Casino here in Las Vegas. The reviews on YouTube were mixed. Some liked their slice, some didn’t.
Have you tried pizza from a vending machine yet? Will you ever try it? I don’t know if I am a pizza snob or anything, but I grew up in New York City, so pizza is practically running through my veins. I don’t just enjoy New York City or Brooklyn style pizza either. I have tasted some excellent pies in Chicago, Detroit, and Neopolitan-style. In the age of robotics and artificial intelligence, I guess I’m just going to have to get used to the idea of pizza from a vending machine.
Whether I decide to try it or not, I can certainly see why entrepreneurs would invest in these machines. They would make good money on college campuses, or even at stadiums and arenas where the lines are so long to grab something to eat or drink. We will probably be seeing similar machines popping up everywhere in the days and years to come.
