December 19, 2023 · Read Time: 1 Min

Let’s talk about a game-changer for your workplace: micro markets! A well-curated, custom-designed micro market can transform the snacking experience for your people. It’s a convenient spot in your workplace for grab-and-go drinks, snacks and more, all with contactless payment. But why choose 24/7 micro markets over conventional vending machines? And what is a micro market, anyway? Let’s get into the details.

Micro Market vs. Vending Machines
With micro markets, flexibility and diversity are king. They’re curated spaces with a wide range of products that go beyond your wildest vending machine dreams. Micro markets have a unique status as a convenient one-stop shop for fresh and delicious meals, snacks, coffee, hot and cold drinks and more. Where conventional vending is limited to snacks, drinks, and pre-made meals (if you’re lucky), micro markets bring customizable options into the picture.
