What Is A Micro-Market?
A Micro-Market is a compact, self-serve store that provides fresh food and drink options 24/7. Automated, without the need for staff, they’re an increasingly popular choice in office environments.
Closely tied to the vending machine industry, Micro-Markets are commonly referred to as ‘mini canteens’. In operation 24/7, they’re an innovative solution for office vending. Through a self-service checkout system, and expansive range of food and drink options, they’re proven to lower overheads, promote staff wellbeing and productivity.
A high street experience, in your workplace.
A self-serviced experience, Micro-Markets serve an abundance of refreshment solutions in locations that require an unattended payment system. Entirely bespoke, they deliver an experience suited to the fast-paced life of a busy office environment.
With a customisable range of hot and cold food and drink choices, you can tailor the options in your Micro-Market to your colleagues likes and dislikes, dietary requirements and allergies.
Ensuring your colleagues have access to healthy options in the workplace is key in promoting wellbeing. Moreover, giving your staff the option to purchase food and drinks within the office space promotes productivity, and presents an avenue for extra income.
From our first meeting, to the plan, design and installation, our in-house team will work closely with you to ensure that your Micro-Market is exceptionally suited to your colleagues needs. We’ll collaborate on a strategy to transform your space, and be on hand for advice and guidance. We can source your barista-style coffee machines, fridges, microwaves and other large or small catering items.
Our skilled, highly-experienced installation experts are British-based and work with the best materials to give a long lasting, quality finish.
Even when the installation is complete, we’ll be on hand to guide your staff through the self-serve process and restock your food and drink options when necessary.
How could you benefit from a micro-market?
A Case Study
The Client: A Large UK Office.
Project: Update the existing and outdated canteen to ensure staff had access to sustenance, round the clock.
Results: A bespoke Micro-Market installation, with a bar and seating area.
Deliver an alternative to the existing, outdated canteen for a large UK office. The alternative should be intuitive and include a range of food and drink options, bar and seating area, all without the overhead costs.
Rather than install a standard canteen, we used our experience to deliver a bespoke alternative, fit to meet the client’s requests. The tailored Micro-Market would boast an assortment of hot and cold food and drink options, including energy-fuelled snacks, healthy lunches and comfort food, an innovative coffee machine and bar.
We collaborated with the client, before seeking guidance from our project team. Once the Micro-Market had been designed, we sourced the catering equipment and materials to start the build. We asked the employees what stock they’d like to see in the Micro-Market, and continued to closely monitor the products to ensure that popular items are consistently restocked.
To limit cash handling on site, we recommended an alternative cashless vending system. This ‘tap and go’ approach is fast-paced, limiting the need for a manned operation.
