Is a Micromarket for YOU!?

Micro Markets New Jersey, Princeton, Toms River and Edison

Most consumers want the convenience and variety offered by Vending Micro Markets.  However, vending micro markets may not work in every situation.  First, one must consider the space available for a micro market.   Micro markets require an area of around 50 square feet as a minimum.  Does you company have such an area.  Depending on the products you wish to have in your micro market (how many, which ones) more area may be required. 

Does your company have enough employees to justify a vending micro market?  When vending micro markets first were introduced they were often seen as alternatives to the employee cafeteria and operators required that a location have 300-400 employees before installing a vending micro market.  As vending micro markets increased in popularity that number has dropped to 100 employees and on some occasions fewer than that!

Is traditional vending working for your company?  Are your employees happy with the items they purchase from your current vending machines? If not contact Vending Needs for more information about how micro markets can work for you and your company!

Did you know that vending machines are the most commonly reported source of onsite food? It’s true. Nearly two-thirds of large employers have vending options available, while about a quarter of smaller employers do. Keeping your employees and guests happy and fed is very important.




 Imagine, for a minute, choosing to replace the vending machines in your building with a mini convenience store. Instead of paying for each item individually, customers would choose all the items they want to purchase and pay for it all at once at an easy to use self-checkout station. This is life with micromarkets! 

Consumers are driving the evolution of micromarket innovations. Quite simply, people want more variety, more access, more payment options and—perhaps most of all—fresh food ingredients. Micromarkets meet all of these demands.

Convenience: Micromarkets can be set up in locations where customers otherwise wouldn't be able to easily purchase perishable goods. Self-service kiosks eliminate many of the problems associated with traditional vending machines such as stuck merchandise or faulty coin/bill mechanisms. Instead, micromarkets offer secure payment options such as credit/debit cards, cash, smartphone, fingerprint reader, and even payroll deduction.





Variety: Micromarkets go beyond the vending of prepackaged foods, although they certainly can provide them. Today’s consumer, however, seeks fresh foods and beverages, which micromarkets can stock in every variety. In addition to food, they can vend sundries, small electronics, travel gear and other items typically found in convenience stores.

Novelty: Nothing sells better than “newness,” especially if the innovation also offers value. Micromarkets are currently perceived as fun. However, even once their novelty fades, the experience is so easy to navigate that consumers may return to or choose them over a more conventional means of acquiring the same goods.
