MooBella does far more than the average vending machine. Consumers can make up to 96 varieties of ice cream in just three steps. Using a touch screen, customers first choose between premium and low-fat ice cream, followed by a choice of 12 flavors like coffee and cake batter and three mix-ins including chocolate chips. The machine, which is about as large as a household refrigerator, then delivers a freshly made scoop of ice cream.
Based in Massachusetts, MooBella currently has 45 machines installed throughout New England, including at Massachusetts’ Logan International Airport and New Hampshire’s Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. The company plans to use the latest funding to expand to more colleges, museums and restaurants in the Northeast.
