Pizza is a universal go-to food thanks to its versatility, wide price range and the fact that it’s everywhere. A less common commodity is the pizza vending machine, but Brampton just got its first.
PizzaForno, the latest addition to Bramalea City Centre’s food court, serves up pizzas in a vending machine, and the best part? It’s basically served up by a robot.
Customers select their 12-inch pizza from an interactive screen — options include pepperoni, four cheese, BBQ chicken and more. Pizzas are cooked in a whopping three minutes and are served up by a robotic arm.
Once customers place their order, the robotic arm retrieves the pizza from a refrigerator, puts it in the oven, takes it out when it’s done, puts it in a box, and then serves it up to the customer.
