Italy gets Pizza vending machines
Italy is joining the ranks of Japan when it comes to vending machine. Mr. Torghele an Italian entrepreneur has developed a vending machine that cooks pizza. In under 3 minutes the machines does not just slip a frozen pizza into a microwave. It actually whips up flour, water, tomato sauce and fresh ingredients to produce a piping hot pizza. The machine has a little window so the customers can see their pizza taking shape. The average pizza is priced at around $4.50, however the only deterrent is the whopping cost of $32,000 for the vending machine which is 10 times the cost of an average vending machine.
