In short, a micro market is one-stop shopping in a place people will love. It has everything they need, 24/7. It’s a mix of favorites and the latest trends - fresh food, favorite snacks and drinks, lots of healthy choices - in a space where food, people and technology all converge.
One of the great things about a micro market is that it’s intentionally designed to be scalable, agile and flexible. We’ll custom tailor a market to do what you need, such as replacing a big café, or making it easier for people who don’t have a lot of time to get a quick snack or meal. Together we’ll create the perfect plan for you, your space, your people and your budget.
Where do we start? There are so many benefits, for people and for employers.
First, micro markets are all about saving time – especially because people won’t have to go offsite for meals. It takes a lot less time for them to get what they need, which helps them stay focused and be more productive - especially because they don’t have to plan the next lunch run. It’s especially valuable to people who don’t have long lunches, need a quick break, and those who work nights. Everyone gets great food, snacks, and drinks, 24/7.
They’re perfect for today’s hybrid work patterns. It’s possible that a big café just isn’t right for you, but you still want your people to have access to great food. That’s exactly what micro markets are for – offering a variety of fresh food, snacks, drinks, coffee and more, without taking up a huge amount of space.
Micro markets are intentionally flexible. No matter how big or small the footprint, the InReach team will be able to create a program you’ll love. Everything we offer is scalable to your space, your budget and your preferences.
Micro markets are fantastic places for people to gather. A million great ideas come from casual conversations over a snack or drink. Your team will have a common place where they can connect and collaborate.
Finally, people need to know that their employers value them and care about their well-being. What better way is there than creating a space where they can relax, recharge and reboot – especially if it’s stocked with food and drinks that support their wellness goals or bring them joy.
We’re always in touch with what’s going on, using metrics, real-time data and telemetry to make sure we’re guest-centric. Our technology streamlines back-end management, and guarantees that items are in stock, and shelves and displays are full. We can even know when to bring extra products, or if we need to increase the number of times the driver visits. All sales, transactions, reporting, restocking, inventory and ordering are managed through our connected point-of-sale and back-of-house systems. Our ability to track sales guarantees everything in the market is consistent, fresh and available every day.
With contactless payment, people can make purchases without physically touching a kiosk or keypad, using cash or swiping a card. Instead, a shopper just holds their phone up to the point-of-sale system, which connects to their digital wallet and gets the payment info needed for the transaction. It’s great because it not only speeds up the checkout time, but it also eliminates the transmission of viruses and germs often found on commonly used surfaces.
We’ll work with you to learn your people’s unique preferences and favorites, making sure to also include healthy choices, local flavors, what’s new and trendy and other items for everyone’s dietary and lifestyle needs.
Visually, InReach micro markets are designed by experts to ensure the space is appealing and has the easiest shopping path to maximize people’s time. If you want, we can add a touch of local flair into the design to make sure they feel at home.
