micro markets

As things are starting to go back to normal, we can’t help but think of the changes these past couple of years have brought. People are now more cautious of their health and are taking care of themselves more than ever. With that in mind, healthy, fresh food options play a big part! What if having to worry about preparing healthy meals was a thing of the past? And what if freshly prepared food items were available to you at any time during the workday with onsite dining? Have you thought about options that bring the convenience of vending machines, only with more variety? This is where Micro markets come in! They are an innovative unattended retail market concept and a new fresh market vending solution! Micro market stores are taking over and quickly becoming the preferred vending option for break rooms. Let’s explore why!

The Benefits

Micro markets provide a convenient way for employees to purchase healthy fresh food, snacks, and beverages; they also help promote healthy eating habits and help boost employee morale and productivity. The micro market convenience store offers several amazing benefits, including a wider variety of food products like eggs, oatmeal, sandwiches, fruit cups, and many more options available to choose from! Going a step beyond traditional vending, open shelving doesn’t limit the size of various products as traditional vending machines often do. Additionally, micro market vending features self-checkout stations, making it easy for employees to grab what they need and go. With a successful micro market in the workplace, the self-checkout micro market kiosk provides all-day snack and meal options. It’s a complete vending solution that acts like onsite dining.

Another reason retail micro markets are taking over traditional vending machines includes their beautiful presentation within office buildings, warehouses, and other workplaces. Each market setup includes custom fixtures and open shelving, coolers and freezers, and high-tech touch screens with superior security. Each market location provides an inviting environment and a seamless experience. For an unattended retail space, it’s genuinely hassle-free


Technology and safety

First, let’s talk about payment convenience; we know times are quickly changing, and modern payment options are a must! Luckily, micro markets provide safe payment solutions such as mobile payments, card readers, and cash. Advanced micro market technology makes this process quick and easy. Even more important than a user-friendly experience is your security through secure cashless payments. These retail micro markets safeguard your credit or debit card information after each transaction. Rest assured that each interaction in this retail space will be financially secure.

Now let’s talk about food safety. You may ask yourself, wouldn’t refrigerated, fresh, and healthy food options spoil if the coolers and freezers are not used properly? What if the doors aren’t closed all the way or even propped open somehow? While this can all happen, Dependable offers advanced micro market technology that helps assure the health and wellness of our retail market users. High tech sensors keep track of and when freezers coolers drop below a specific temperature making certain food items vulnerable to spoiling. If so, these food items become unavailable for purchase at checkout, but don’t worry! With web-based inventory management, these items are then reloaded promptly to avoid being unavailable in the micro market for long. What an excellent safety and reliable feature!
