Micro-Markets and you
The concept for both Micro-Markets and refreshment solutions are very similar – to provide employees within the workplace with food and drinks in a fast and efficient way.
Ideal for the modern workplace, a Micro-Market is a revolution in workplace refreshments, but do you know what one is?
Picture one like it was a mini unattended supermarket – not too much different than the self-checkout at your local shop. They consist of open shelves and refrigerated food kiosks that offer healthy pre-made food, fruit, and drinks (hot and cold). However, it’s the level of convenience these markets can bring to your employee breakroom.
Benefits for all
There are a variety of benefits that come with a Micro-Market, including:
- Completely hands-off
- Little day-to-day maintenance
- Quick and easy to set up
- Can adjust to fit available space
- Increased productivity
Coffee machines and Micro-Markets
Probably one of the most important features of the Micro-Market is the coffee machine. A machine like the NEO adapts well to the modern workplace and the modern design of a Micro-Market, by providing different coffee shop drinks customisation and more than one way to pay.
The NEO coffee machine also showcases graphics and illumination that will engage the user while guiding them to the ultimate intelligent beverage experience.
We offer a range of coffee beans which include our own six different blends that suit individual tastes. We also provide two certified Fairtrade options and a selection of instant coffee. (Decaf or Fairtrade)
Questions/Things to consider
It’s worth thinking about these questions and taking everything into consideration.
- Type of brands? You can adapt the food range on offer to the demands of your employees
- Do they have allergies? Are they vegan or vegetarian? What healthy food/drinks would you put in?
- Have you thought about the design if you consider one?
- How could it work with social distancing in place?
Technology and innovation
A Micro-Market adapts well to the current situation we all face with pre-packaged items and an open design that encourages social distancing. Also, they take advantage of the latest technology and innovation to deliver an unmanned retail experience.
