Cupcake vending machines to debut

March 5, 2012 6:10:27 AM PST
Sprinkles, a gourmet cupcake chain, is debuting its first cupcake vending machine this week at its original store in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The plan is to have machines at outlets nationwide this summer.

Sprinkles has a store here in Chicago on Walton, just off Michigan Ave. and we're next up to get the service.

The cupcake ATMs will be within Sprinkles at first but accessible from outside so that customers can indulge even when the stores are closed.

Eventually, the machines will be at remote locations apart from the stores.
