Sprinkles Cupcake ATM's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Someone posted the article from Money.cnn.com on my Facebook page. I don't know if it's true, but it could hurt some of the small cupcake shops that only do cupcakes. I wonder if they are trying to do to small bakers what Starbucks did to small coffee shops?

I don't know, but I would love to know the mechanics of it...how are they going to get the machine to dispense a cupcake without it tumbling over and smooshing? Wonder what their packaging will be like?

It looks like the automated cupcake machine is not self contained but attached to the side of their building (similar to a take-out window), which means product could be stocked from inside and moved horizontally without any drop.

No new information in that video other than that it will be stocked every few hours and the cupcakes will be dispensed in boxes.
