burrito vending machine HOLLYWOOD, CA – A 24-hour Mobil station on Santa Monica Boulevard here is home to what's being dubbed the world's first hot burrito vending machine.

The Burrito Box heats up pre-made burritos in about one minute. The $3 burritos are available in five 100% natural varieties, including breakfast chorizo sausage, egg and cheese, shredded beef and cheese and chicken, bean and rice. Patrons can opt to add a side of guacamole, sour cream or hot sauce for an additional fee; the condiments are dispensed in separate packaging alongside the burrito.

The machine, equipped with a touchscreen interface, is made by AVT Inc. for Box Brands Inc. The Burrito Box screen displays music videos and movie trailers while patrons wait for their burritos to heat up.

Box Brands will place a second vending machine at the new 76 station in Los Angeles's Century City neighborhood on Jan. 18.
