Sprinkles in Beverly Hills came up with the amazing idea of a 24 hour cupcake ATM. (Come on Seattle…. jump on this bandwagon!)
The ACM (that’s Automated Cupcake Machine) debuted to such extreme HEAVY traffic, it couldn’t handle it and actually broke!
The machine has 600 cupcakes … but it was receiving over 1,000 sales a day!
Even though the machine is 24 hours, more people were staying in line for the ACM than actually go inside and order their treats in person. When the ACM broke, an engineer was quickly brought in to get it back up and running in two hours.
Now, Sprinkles has an employee watch over the machine to make sure nothing bad happens.
