Prepare Yourselves, Because The First Pizza ATM Has Landed In America
I got 99 problems but where to get a piping hot pizza late at night in minutes without having to interact with anybody, not even a pizza delivery person, ain't one…
So sing the lucky students at Cincinnati’s Xavier University (I imagine), considering they are about to be #blessed with an actual pizza ATM on their campus.
According to the Cincinnati branch of USA Today, the Pizza ATM resides in one of Xavier University’s residence halls, and can serve up fresh, quality pizzas in three minutes. It is open 24/7.
"We were looking for a way to solve this problem of having a late-night pizza option on campus," Assistant Vice President Jude Kiah told USA Today. "And this meets our students where they’re at, in their residence hall."
"And we like the idea of being first and innovative and trying something new,” Kiah said. "There’s one Pizza ATM in the U.S. and this is it."
Xavier partnered with the France-based Paline to bring the Pizza ATM to its campus, WCPO reports. The machine can hold up to 70 pizzas at a time, and students can expect to pay $10 for a cooked, sliced and boxed ATM pizza.
"It is the best pizza I've ever had, and I hate to admit that as a New Yorker," Jennifer Paiotti, marketing director of XU's auxiliary services, told WCPO.
