Micro Markets

A place where teams can catch up, collaborate and come together.

What is a Micro Market?

Micro markets are unattended, cashless, retail spaces with secure self-serve checkouts, where employees can pick and choose refreshments to suit their moods, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The idea for the Micro Market was conceived and introduced in 2015 and in the past five years they have replaced lots of vending machines across companies all over the world. The Micro Market is unique in the sense that it looks like a modern convenience store but has some of the functionality of vending and refreshment services.

Our micro markets are bespoke in their design, keeping your brand and business in mind every step of the way, ensuring it is able to deliver on every possible level whilst keeping your employees happy in the workplace.

We have selected a product range with variety firmly at the core of our offering. We all have our favourites and we all like to try something a little different from time to time. If fresh is best, no problem. Fancy a meal deal? Easy. Hot or cold, fruity or savoury, food or drink, we’ve got something for everyone.

Micro Market VS Vending Machines

Traditionally businesses have relied on vending machines to provide their employees with a snacking option throughout the day but in recent years the micro market has taken precedence thanks to its capacity to provide much more than just quick, easy food. So, what are the real differences between the micro market model and vending?

Higher volume of products

While a traditional vending machine might only have the capacity for around 40 products, your average Micro Market is going to be able to stock anywhere between 150-400 products, meaning that employees are going to benefit from much more choice. Because of this, there is much more opportunity for a Micro Market to cater to varying different dietary requirements (gluten-free, vegan etc).

Fresher, healthier options with a Micro Market

It’s no secret that people are becoming more interested in health and the foods that they consume and for those that are health conscious, a micro market is a great option. Fresh food options are more readily available because the product can be restocked daily, unlike a vending machine that will typically have pre-packaged food.

Because of this, a micro market has the advantage of being both convenient and healthy. It’s important that business owners and managers consider the benefits that this can have for their business. Employees consuming healthier food items and avoiding processed items will likely be able to concentrate on tasks better, will feel better and will subsequently be able to achieve more at work.

Layout, space and sociability

While vending machines tend to be placed in meaningful places in offices, the space around them is rarely maximised to create a social area for employees to relax. The opposite is true for micro markets, which will encompass breakout spaces where people can catch up with colleagues, unwind and even hold informal meetings. Micro markets can be seen as a hub that employees can get together around, whereas a vending machine lacks the same social benefits.

A different kind of self-service

Clearly, there are a number of distinguishable differences between traditional vending machines and a Micro Market. Though the vending machine is a choice that has been around much longer, some might argue that its offering has become outdated in terms of choice, scope and its place in modern working environments.

The Micro Market has the benefit of acting as a ‘hub’ within the workplace, creating somewhere not only for employees to refuel but to socialise too. Meetings of all kinds can take place around a Micro Market and it gives businesses the opportunity to convey their forward-thinking nature and commitment to maintaining high levels of morale and wellbeing for their employees.
