Here’s some good news for Manhattan cupcake monsters: Sprinkles Cupcakes will install three 24-hour cupcake vending machines around the city this year.
The New York Daily News found out from a company rep that the vending machines are planned for Midtown, downtown, and the Upper West Side, but exact locations have not been decided on. The machines will be called “cupcake automats,” and will be filled daily with a couple hundred Sprinkles cupcakes. (To see how this all works, check out the HuffPo video of a Sprinkles ATM in Los Angeles, where the machines are making a big splash.) Sprinkles expects the first Manhattan installation to be ready by summer.
