Increase brand impact and fight wage hikes with the Pizza ATM

The Pizza ATM offers expansion opportunities without added labor costs




 

The Pizza ATM serves up hot, fresh-from-the-oven pizzas with the convenience of a vending machine.

The Pizza ATM is not a prototype. It has a history and a proven track record. It’s the most dependable, most profitable and most innovative machine of its kind. It’s the fruit of many years of research and continued innovation. And it has been successfully operating for 14 years, providing long-lasting reliability.

Many Pizza ATM machines are already successfully operating in Europe, mostly in pizza stores and independent businesses. “Now we are excited that the first Pizza ATM has arrived to Xavier University in Cincinnati,” says Alec Verlin, CEO of Paline LLC, home of the Pizza ATM, headquartered in Cincinnati. “Other Pizza ATMs will start popping up soon in colleges and various other locations.”

In fact, Xavier University will hold a grand opening for a firsthand demonstration of the Pizza ATM during the week of August 22-26. “Any pizzeria operator eager to see how it works is welcome to join,” Verlin says.

 

Hot, Fresh and Convenient

There has been a shift in consumer behavior, and the Pizza ATM is a game-changer that fits today’s 24/7 on-demand mindset—the get-it-when-you-want-it attitude. It leverages modern pizza distribution, convenience and quality. It works like a bank ATM—the customer swipes his card, and three minutes later, he gets a fresh, hot 12” pizza instead of bank notes.

Yes, we said “hot and fresh.” What makes the Pizza ATM unique is that it serves up your pies as if they came straight out of your kitchen’s oven. The Pizza ATM has a temperature-controlled refrigeration unit as well as a high-performance, proprietary electric convection oven that cooks your pizzas to perfection. It allows you to offer an extended pizza menu that customers can’t find elsewhere. And its dependable process always preserves your pizza’s taste and quality. In fact, the pizzas and ingredients never touch any part of the machine. “This is not a typical packaged-food vending machine,” Verlin said. “It’s more like what happens in a restaurant. The pizzas are handmade in kitchens, but the delivery to consumers is automated, and regular checks are made every day to guarantee fresh inventory.”

With the Pizza ATM, you can grow your sales during business hours by placing the machine close to your existing pizzeria or increase your sales territory and brand impact by placing machines at high-traffic locations, such as airports, hospitals, colleges and gas stations, for round-the-clock sales. Pizzeria operators can load the Pizza ATM with their bestselling pizzas or try out different recipes. They can offer discounts for pizzas picked up at Pizza ATMs or add an extra dollar for the convenience of after-hours pick-up. “It’s totally up to you,” Verlin says.

Above all, the Pizza ATM boosts your bottom line. Pizzerias operating a Pizza ATM dispensing 12” pizzas have shown revenue growth up to 30%!

 

$60,000 in One Year

Rather than focusing on the cost—which is in the $50,000 range—Verlin prefers to discuss the unparalleled one-year average return on investment (ROI) provided by the Pizza ATM. A Pizza ATM can easily net more than $60,000 in one year. “To put it in perspective, at $10 per 12” pizza, the Pizza ATM can hold $700 in revenue per batch,” he adds. “On weekends or for special events, it can even sell up to two batches. Do the math.”

Another important aspect is the very low operating cost of the Pizza ATM. The labor-service costs-to-revenue ratio is half that of other pizza vending machines, according to Verlin. For example, food projections in the oven are insignificant, thus cleaning requirements are minimal.

Most importantly, the Pizza ATM is a profit-making monster. Verlin noted a recent article about a different type of machine that dispenses pizza by the slice. He says that machine could net $70,000 in five years, while a well-managed Pizza ATM selling whole 12” pizzas can net $300,000 in the same time frame. “It seems that selling slices will slice up your profits, too,” Verlin says. “The Pizza ATM is meant to turn any pizza making operation into a 24/7 operation and generate greater profits.”

 

An Extension of Your Brand

As minimum wage hikes and a tight labor market push up wages, self-service pizza kiosks are fueling the automation craze and offer labor-saving technology and a higher ROI. Existing pizza businesses that purchase the Pizza ATM enjoy virtually unlimited capabilities. “Pizzeria owners can wrap the Pizza ATM in their own restaurant logo and branding,” Verlin notes. “It becomes an extension of the brand as well—it can be your biggest potential expansion in years.”

Operators can even place custom advertisements on the screen. It offers full remote communication for custom settings and tracking as well as real-time email and text alerts, webcam monitoring, and remote error and shutdown detection.

With the Pizza ATM, pizzeria operators can get more of their pizzas in more customers’ hands without hiring more employees or building new stores. This is not just another pizza vending machine. The Pizza ATM has no peer.
