  • Forget cash, if you haven’t already. These days, it’s all about digital payment.

    What consumers want now most of all is “ease” — from choosing where to eat to how to pay, they want it all to feel effortless, and often contactless. So, it’s critical that any purchasing experience provide the latest in payment technology.

    Contactless payments give your guest a feeling of control over the speed at which they are able to truly grab and go (and pay for it!). And, speed is the name of the game when someone is grabbing that first cup of coffee in the morning to get the day started or fueling up for their afternoon with a fresh salad, bowl or handcrafted sandwiches from a micro cafe for lunch. Speed is the key to a seamless experience. People today expect to pay for meals using digital wallet options. Long gone are the days of carrying cash or making a stop at the ATM.

    But, making payments easier is only one part of the people-pleasing puzzle; it’s critical to give people flexibility in how they access their food, too. 

    Solutions like our micro markets, offer your guests the desired flexibility of a contactless self-checkout, or the ability to order ahead online, ensuring they can get where they’re going fast, armed with the nutritious or delicious food and drinks they crave.

    People want fast, easy and delicious options, and micro markets deliver that and then some. We don’t have to settle for sad sandwiches and lame snack leftovers. According to research conducted by Sodexo in partnership with Harris Interactive, 53% of those who dine out for lunch say their top priority is finding tasty food that makes them feel good.

    Technology is meant to make our lives easier, and infusing it in the things we do and use every day is a must! A convenience solution that offers food and drink people look forward to, all while giving them time back in their day? That’s a winning combination for your guests in this fast-paced world we live in.
