Showing your employees that you appreciate their commitment can work wonders for your company. At Coinadrink Limited, our employees are critical to the success that we have enjoyed throughout our 55-year history, and so forth we show our gratitude in lots of varied ways. National Appreciation Day is the perfect opportunity to remind you that you’re showing your employees you appreciate them by having a Micro Market in your business!
We’ve recently been shouting loud and proud about our Micro Market being selected as a finalist for the Tomorrow’s FM Awards 2018. It’s an achievement we are very proud of, because it shows that the unorthodox yet innovative nature of the Micro Market is reaching the wider scale that we intended. The Micro Market is the revolution in workplace refreshments, and is centralised around the productivity and wellbeing of your workforce.
If you’re a larger workplace seeking quality refreshments for your employees, then you’ve probably narrowed down your options to a Micro Market and a cafeteria. Both provide extensive choice for the larger workplace, and both improve the productivity of your workforce. This is where the similarities end, however. The fact is that the cafeteria is an archaic refreshment solution, and the younger, fresher Micro Market is significantly pulling ahead. Here’s why.
As the working day gets busier, finding the time to take a break and have something to eat becomes much more difficult. The Micro Market was developed to be the ultimate ‘grab and go’ solution, and it has completely revolutionised the face of workplace refreshments. In today’s blog, we want to talk about our refrigerators. Showcasing a diverse range of fresh food through a colossal glass front, there is a lot of technology within to help keep your sandwich or pasty at its very best. While there is often a natural concern about the consumption of fresh food, you never need worry with the Micro Market.
Express Refreshments is one of Coinadrink’s dedicated branch divisions. Developed in 2013, Express Refreshments benefits from Coinadrink’s keen eye for innovation to introduce the Micro Market into workplaces. The Micro Market is an advanced refreshment solution that places over 400 products in the hands of your staff in an aesthetically pleasing design. It is the revolution in workplace refreshments!
Think of Tesco Express and you’ll have almost hit the nail on the head. Over 400 products, ranging from hot drinks to confectionary, are available on shelving, so you can browse each product extensively before committing to purchase. Bespoke innovation allows us to understand which products are proving popular so we can restock to suit, and we can add healthier options to your market.
A refreshment hub with many benefits.
The Micro Market is regarded as a ‘refreshment hub’, encouraging your staff to stay on site for their refreshments. While this is ideal if your business is in a remote location whereby quality refreshments aren’t accessible nearby, keeping staff together also increases engagement. This is key for workplace productivity. The market is completely unmanned and available 24 hours a day, so workplaces operating unusual shift patterns can still enjoy the market.
Sticking to allocated break times.
Keeping staff on site will have a positive impact on employees sticking to their allocated break time. Hurrying off site for refreshments means they are more likely to get back to their desk late, especially when you factor in trying to find somewhere to go and then the queue time that they may experience. The Micro Market uses a cashless payment terminal that is quick and simple to use, so you’ll be back working in no time. It’s the ultimate ‘grab-and-go’ solution.
Tailored to you.
We personally design and create the market to suit the design of your business, and can even add your company branding should you wish. No matter the size of your workplace, we can design the market to suit. CCTV can help deter theft, and bespoke innovation means we know what products are proving popular and what needs re-stocking.
Imagine having the convenience of a self-service store in your workplace. Imagine that self-service store containing your favourite refreshments, all of which are on demand. Imagine all those delicious refreshments being regularly topped up, so you never have to go without. Well imagine no more. Coinadrink have been providing refreshment services for 55 years, and stable success has encouraged us to branch out and form Express Refreshments. The Micro Market is here. Innovation is here.
We’ve been eager to share our Express Refreshments micro-market successes with you. Until now, that’s not been possible. You see, many of our customers are engaged in highly competitive marketplaces. They tend to keep to themselves those innovations that help build staff loyalty and create a better working environment.
So you can imagine how pleased we were to receive the following testimonial from our customer The Shaylor Group…
