Move aside, sushi robots — there’s a new automated chef in town. Thanks to Italian inventor Claudio Torghel, for the past three years Europe has enjoyed vending machine pizza, made from scratch in two-and-a-half minutes flat. Now, its distributor, A1 Concepts, plans to bring the contraption to the U.S.
The machines, aptly named “Let’s Pizza,” will likely be installed in malls, airports, supermarkets, colleges, gas and bus stations and hospitals. A1 Concepts’ CEO Ronald Rammers explained to Pizzamarketplace.com that the pies cook at such a fast rate because of the infra-red oven.
