Micro markets can be described as mini-convenient stores at your own office break room or lunch room. They are usually stocked with healthy and fresh options such as salads, sandwiches and juices, as well as the usual snacks like granola bars, chips, etc. They come in a variety of layouts including open shelving and coolers that are used to provide proper storage and easy access to food items.
They are equipped with self-checkout, unmanned kiosk systems that allow users to use their cash, credit or debit cards or in some cases, their phones to pay for the items they have selected from the market. It’s one of the reasons micro markets have become so popular and an established feature of many offices.
We like to say that they offer a convenient ‘twist’ to the office lunch room, providing employees with a healthy option without the hassle of leaving the office. It is a great alternative that promotes a healthier and more productive workplace. Some employers also provide an added incentive by using loyalty cards that allow employees to get a discount on items when they make healthier purchases.
