Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, installed America’s first pizza vending machine, NBC News reported.
Open 24/7, Pizza ATM dispenses fresh pizza within three minutes of ordering. The 12-inch pies cost $9 to $10, depending on the toppings. The vending machine holds 70 pizzas at a time. The pizzas will be made by staff in the dining hall, but will be heated by the machine at 475 degrees.
"We were looking for a cost-effective way to solve this problem of having a late-night pizza option on campus," Xavier Assistant Vice President Jude Kiah told NBC News. "We liked the idea of being the first school to have this high-quality machine."
The machine is made by Paline, a company based in France. The dispensers are popular in Europe.
