Of course, Canada is a great place to live but we’re really fed up with the lack of 24-hour, cupcake-dispensing ATMs.
Yes, those actually exist… Or at least they will soon thanks to the gourmet cupcake bakery Sprinkles Cupcakes. The Beverley Hills location of the bakery is opening a 24-hour cupcake auto-dispenser and the company is promising more for other American cities.
We learned about the delicious initiative through the Atlantic Cities website, who posted this statement directly from Sprinkles:
“For Sprinkles addicts on the go, 24-Hour Sprinkles debuts as the world’s first cupcake automat! This automatic cupcake machine dispenses freshly baked cupcakes, cupcake mixes, apparel and even cupcakes for Fido! In the heart of Beverly Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24-Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors.”
Cupcakes for Fido? Those unfamiliar with the Sprinkles brand may be surprised and/or delighted to learn they bake for dogs too!
When does a Canadian city get one? Unclear! We don’t even have a Sprinkles shop yet as they’re currently only working within the States. We know that’s a big market to fill, but we’re sure Canadians love cupcakes just as much as Americans so maybe we’ll see a shop up here soon.
The super-reporters at The Atlantic also got the full scoop on how the cupcakes will remain fresh if they’re locked up in a machine for 24-hours at a time. Here’s what a Sprinkles marketing rep had to say:
“The machine is attached to our bakery, which is essentially a 24-hour operation. By the time our closers leave at night, it’s 11 p.m. and our bakers arrive in the wee hours of the morning (2 or 3 a.m.!). We’ll constantly be restocking the automat with freshly baked cupcakes so the cupcake you receive will only have been baked a couple hours earlier.”
Brilliant. The Beverley Hills ATM will be operational in two weeks, so if you happen to live in Los Angeles please let us know how it works!
