Opt for ‘Let’s Pizza’ Vending Machine Dealership
Today our guest post is coming from Katariya who writes for the VendingWorld.com and is sharing with us a quite recent innovative business opportunity: the Pizza Vending Machine. Take it on Katariya!
Take advantage of the $19 billion annual vending machine sales in United States by investing in the newest option on the market: fresh baked pizza. Gone are the days of calling the local pizza parlor and waiting 30 minutes for a freshly baked pizza to be delivered to your doorstep. The newest technology on the market today allows pizza aficionados to walk up to a vending machine, swipe a credit card, and have a scratch-made pizza in their hands in three minutes flat.
Since its first launch in 2009, the “Let’s Pizza” vending machine has made a successful inroad in to the European market – especially in Italy. Thanks to Claudio Torghel, the man behind this brilliant invention. This year, franchise opportunities are available in the United States, making this a great time to get in on the ground floor. The Netherlands-based distributor – A1 Concepts – says the first Let’s Pizza machine will begin operating in Atlanta later this year. Additionally, a large, Florida-based theme park is interested in obtaining the contraption. It would be a great option for malls, airports, supermarkets, college dorms, hospitals, gas stations, and other transportation hubs.
How the “Let’s Pizza” Vending Machine Works
Five years and $6 million in research and development went into the creation of the vending technology. Each machine can hold up to 200 ingredients, which means machines basically have an unlimited array of options. Once a customer makes a selection and pays for the pizza, a pre-packed bag of flour is mixed with a previously sealed bag of water. The machine kneads the dough mixture and rolls it to a 10.5-inch circle. Organic tomato sauce is squirted on the dough and then the toppings – each from individually vacuum-sealed pouches – are placed on top. The pizza is cooked in a 700-degree, infra-red oven.
No human hands touch the pizza in the preparation or cooking process. From start to finish, it takes about 2.5 minutes to get a pizza from a Let’s Pizza vending machine. Small windows allow customers to watch as their pizza is being created. The cooked pizza is presented neatly packaged in a cardboard box.
Each machine is stocked with enough ingredients to make 200 pizzas. The Internet is used to control stock. When inventory gets low, a message is sent to the vending machine operator letting him or her know that it’s time to restock.
Customers will have a choice of four varieties of pizza from which to select. It’s possible to create any kind of pizza with meat, vegetables, and cheese. Additionally, specialized options that meet religious dietary requirements are available from the distributor.
The suggested retail price of a Let’s Pizza is $5.95, but the actual price will be based on location. Popular spots like airports and amusement parks will charge more. The machines accept both credit cards and cash.
The Let’s Pizza machine will debut in the United States in the third quarter of 2012. Growth is expected to be fast, as Americans are some of the biggest consumers of pizza in the world. It’s estimated that Americans eat 350 slices each year. Franchise opportunities for both individuals and corporations are available. Take advantage of this opportunity while it is fresh, exciting, and new to American markets.
