You may have been here before:

After a night of drinking adult beverages, you need some food. However, it's now 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning and there are no places that are still open to serve you food.

You could make food when you get home, but do you really have the capacity for that? No, probably not. That's why we need a 24-hour pizza vending machine in East Lansing.

When Pizza is From a 24-hour Vending Machine, You Can Literally Have Pizza Anytime

You heard me right...a 24-hour pizza vending machine. As of right now, there are three 24-hour pizza vending machines in Jackson, Michigan from a company called PizzaForno. Keep in mind--those three pizza vending machines are the only ones in the whole United States! There are more in Canada, but for now, the U.S. has to come to Jackson, Michigan.

East Lansing Needs A 24-Hour Pizza Vending Machine Like These Ones in Jackson

East Lansing is a college town, home to MSU. And because of that, there are a bunch of young adults around town; living, working, going to school, and going out to the bar. That's why East Lansing needs a 24-hour pizza vending machine like these ones in Jackson.

We think, that of all places, East Lansing should have a 24-hour pizza vending machine. Think about it...a college town full of young adults who go out to bars or stay up late into the wee hours of the morning studying for an exam...it's the perfect place for a 24-hour food option.

Don't get it twisted though, East Lansing does have plenty of places that are open late-night. And, even some places that deliver late-night too. However, there are very few options left that are actually open 24-hours, which would be the perfect opportunity for a 24-hour pizza vending machine.

How Does it Work?

It appears to be pretty easy to use the PizzaForno vending machine. You walk up, use the video screen to make your selection, pay, and then wait three minutes for your pizza to be cooked. And that's it! If you don't feel like eating there, you can even request a cold pizza to take home to bake. There is an app for PizzaForno as well. What's nice about it is that it shows you exactly how many of each type of pizza is available at that location. That way you know if they have what you want before you go there.

All in all, we think that a 24-hour pizza vending machine is just the thing that East Lansing needs. What do you think? Let us know by sending us a message on the station app.

If you want to try out the vending machines for yourself, you can find them at these Jackson locations:

  • 1319 E Michigan Ave
  • 100 S Cooper St
  • 2900 Springport Rd

While we wait for the pizza vending machine to come to town, you can check out these other delicious food options.
