The company behind the UK’s first robotic pizza vending machine to offer customers five flavors of topping in less than five minutes is expanding its business.

Pizza Rebellion launched its first machine filled with 70 handmade pizzas outside The Richmond Arms in West Ashling, West Sussex, in March.

The machine, which charges customers between £8.95 and £9.95 for a pizza, saw customers choose between ‘totally modern’ flavors, including Pulverized Pepperoni, Pig n’ Pineapple and Rib and Pickle.

Due to its success, business owners Will and Emma Jack have now decided to set up a second machine opposite Chichester train station.

The machine will target “people who commute late and get out of pubs and clubs,” the owners said.

Mr Jack, 46, said: ‘We were always looking for a solid location where the demographics are good.

“It’s near a train station and college and it will serve the kind of late night customers.

“It’s for people who commute late and get out of pubs and clubs.

“That’s the kind of market we’re looking at.

‘It is an area with a lot of movement and traffic. It fits in well. It doesn’t affect the environment around it.’

The pizzas are kept in a refrigerated cold store before being cooked and sent back to the customer in a pizza box.

They are cooked in a proprietary oven using an electric pulsed jet heat method.

There is also the option to sell raw pizzas that people can then cook at home.

Mr Jack said: ‘We did it completely blind. It’s unmanned.

“It’s not something that’s been done before, so there’s no blueprint or boxes to check.

‘There are many barriers.

“It’s really fun and no mess. It is healthy for a pizza and it is a freshly made product.

‘We have cooked at the highest level and we have used all our experience in the food industry.’

The couple used to run an award-winning woodfire pizza shop and owned the pub, The Richmond Arm, where the first machine was launched.

They decided to set up the French-made machine after “six months of thorough research” and “solving technical problems”.

Mr Jack said: ‘We are a local business building a fun and new brand. It is an exciting project that is moving forward.

“Hopefully we will get support for other areas. Ideally we want five or six around Arun and Chichester.

‘It is a solid company to expand further.

“We create jobs and it’s a handmade product.”
