CINCINNATI — Customers will soon be able to get pizza from an ATM at one Ohio University.

Xavier University in Cincinnati has partnered with a French company to install the first Pizza ATM in North America.

The company, Paline, says the machine will hold 70 pizzas at once. Customers will be able to use a touch screen to pick one of the $10 pizzas, which will be heated for several minutes, placed in a cardboard box and ejected through a slot.

Paline says the pizza dispensers have been in Europe for 14 years. They’re typically in small towns, at gas stations or pizzerias.

Xavier’s marketing director for auxiliary services, Jennifer Paiotti, tells WCPO-TV that she’s a New Yorker but considers the machine-dispensed pizza to be the best she’s ever had.
