Unattended, self-service retail has grown in demand since the start of the pandemic, and so forth so has the Micro Market refreshment facility for modern workplaces.
Early adopters appreciated how such a grand facility could represent a huge perk for staff, but as time has gone on even smaller sites are understanding how its flexibility could work for their business.
Put simply, the Express Refreshments Micro Market is more accessible than you think.
The Micro Market can work in small locations.
The benefits of a Micro Market, including 24-hour, self-service availability, aren’t just apparent for larger sites that perhaps operate shift patterns.
No, the Micro Market can still work well in smaller locations.
It’s best to think of the Micro Market as being totally bespoke to requirements. It’s not a one size fits all facility and is instead designed and created from the ground up for each and every project, whatever your vision.
11% of all Micro Markets around the world are now placed in smaller environments compared to ten years ago, from small canteens to breakout areas. If all you need is one fridge for fresh food and a few shelves for snacks, that’s what you can have.
That means your business can conform to the modern demands set by your employees, without the need for anything too big or costly.
A cost-effective solution for all.
All businesses, regardless of size, want a refreshment solution that meets staff demand whilst also proving cost-effective. The Micro Market offers just that.
Micro Markets have always found success in canteens and breakout areas because they can generally offer more choice than what is available from a traditional vending machine.
Businesses are now helping the market to grow further in these closed-loop environments, such as in serviced buildings and other communal spaces.
What this effectively means, is that staff from all manner of companies can access the Micro Market within the building, removing the need for multiple refreshment facilities or services.
Not only does this cut costs, but also benefits each individual company by encouraging staff to stay on site for break times and stick to their allocated time.
Why the Micro Market is proving to be an unrivalled solution.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we think about workplace refreshments, and indeed other facilities on site. Touch points and interaction matter more than ever, and we need flexibility to help manage shift patterns or just managed break times.
With self-service ability and cashless payments, the Micro Market is a solution that works around the end user in every sense.
Fully managed by us as the operator, everything is there when you need it, from fresh coffee first thing in the morning to a healthy snack just before you finish for the day. Real time data helps us monitor stock automatically, so literally all the end user needs to worry about is what you choose.
Such flexibility means the Micro Market can be positioned wherever you need it to be, whether that’s in a private canteen or larger breakout area.
Think of it as your very own convenience store at work. An easy to navigate floor plan makes it easy to adopt a one-way system and get what you need, whilst for the business it takes up much less room.
In this post-Covid world, the Micro Market can also be central to a much larger recreational environment equipped with water coolers, comfy seating, TV’s and more. This really helps improve company culture in line with employee wellness.
Whereas businesses used to believe the Micro Market was reserved for certain types of environments, it’s now more accessible than ever.
