Vending machines are no longer just for chocolate and crisps.
Over the past few years, we’ve seen others emerge from ice cream varieties to ones solely selling cupcakes.
But one company has taken the instant food invention one step further, as a pizza vending machine now exists – offering freshly baked goodies in just five minutes.
These new machines stock 70 fresh handmade pizzas, ready and waiting to be cooked at any time – day or night. So they are great for people commuting late and coming from pubs and clubs.
There are five different toppings to choose from, including pulverised pepperoni, pig n’ pineapple and rib and pickle.
Each one costs between £8.95 and £9.95 – which is cheaper than many high street takeaway chains – and customers can also take the pizza uncooked, to finish it off for themselves at home.
To get the speedy cooking time, the machines feature a patented oven – which uses an electric pulsed jet heat method.
The process is also Covid-safe, as customers order through an interactive screen or reserve via an app using a unique code for contactless collection.
Pizza Rebellion launched its first machine outside The Richmond Arms in West Ashling, West Sussex, earlier this year and it proved to be a hit with locals.
So much so, that business owners Will and Emma Jack have now decided to set up a second one opposite Chichester Railway Station.
They also plan to keep expanding – hopefully to new areas across the UK and beyond.
Will said: ‘We are a local business, building a fun and new brand. It’s an exciting project moving forward.
‘Hopefully we get support for other areas. Ideally, we want five or six around Arun and Chichester.
‘It’s a solid business to expand on further afield. We are creating jobs as well as it’s a handmade product.’
Meanwhile in London, Pizza Express has launched its first vegan store, with jackfruit ‘pepperoni’ and tomato with vegan mozzarella.
