Food Now has introduced a vending machine that can deliver hot pizzas in four minutes.
The Pizza Now vending machine can be sited either in store or on the forecourt, offering the potential for operators to serve hot or cold pizzas 24 hours a day.
Food Now managing director, Mark Kingston, said: “We can site the Pizza Now anywhere, even on sites where there is potential for abuse, because the design is tough.” The technology is already used in canteens, supermarkets and on the high street in France.
The machine can store 40 12” pizzas in two flavours at three degrees centigrade, and the product is packed in foil-lined disposable boxes.
Stock is automatically monitored by software in the vending machine, and the company offers a complete customer support package, including pre-sale site surveys, training and advice. Flexible lease and purchase options are also available.
