What is a micro market and why is it good for our workplace?

Here at Vending Sense, we work closely with our clients to create a fully bespoke micro market (similar to a supermarket) for refreshments in the workplace, by installing state of the art office vending machines with branded housing units for your machines to create the ultimate on-the-go catering solution.

Based on your break room space, we will fit out the most suitable micro market vending machines, such as vending, fridges, microwaves, coffee stations and confectionary stands to allow your team to have access to a self-service supermarket onsite. You can stock your micro market with a variety of hot and cold refreshments, whether it caters for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a light snack.

Opting for a fully bespoke market solution ensures your break-out area aligns seamlessly with your brand. Our helpful team will work with you to kit out your space and customise your micro market panels to your company brand guidelines.

We design, build and maintain your micro market

Our in-house design team will work closely with you and your marketing team to make your micro market visually pleasing and always on-brand, meanwhile our technical engineers worry about fitting and maintaining your market. We’ll even attend your site as often as required to restock your office micro market machines with your favourite refreshments.

Alongside the creation of your micro market vending machines we will help with the following:

  • Regular machine servicing
  • Daily stock replenishments
  • We can arrange any furniture or plants needed for your break room
  • Employees can carry our self-serviced payments
  • A helpful support team on hand at all times by phone or email
  • Access to a dedicated Account Manager here at Vending Sense

Micro markets suitable for any office environment or workspace

We understand not all offices have the space to incorporate a full break-out area for their staff. Which is why with a bespoke office micro market, we create a market to fit the space that you have available. As long as you have an unoccupied wall in the building to use, we can help you to create a custom solution that works around you.

Micro markets tend to work best for businesses with over 100 staff members on site that have an unoccupied wall to use or a dedicated break room.
