Micro markets offer several benefits for both the businesses that install them and the customers/employees who visit them. What follows is a simple overview of how micro markets work and how they can help make your business be more efficient and cost effective. Tassi Vending is a professional micro market/vending company that’s been serving the greater Seattle area since 1998 and we provide professional micro market/vending solutions to customers as far north as Marysville and as far south as Puyallup. We’ve already installed many micro markets for clients across the region and the responses have been great. Once business owners and property managers learn how micro markets work and the financial and health benefits that they can offer, they get behind the idea 100%.
Perhaps the best way to think about a micro market is as a cross between a vending machine and a health focused convenience store that you can fit right in your employee break room or cafeteria. Available selections of food, drinks, and snacks are displayed openly so potential customers can handle and inspect their selections before they make payment. When customers are ready to buy, they simply carry their selected items to the self service checkout kiosk where they can scan their items and pay with a debit or credit card. These self service checkout kiosks work just like the ones at many major supermarkets, are touch screen, and are simple enough for first time users to operate.
Similar to a traditional vending machine, micro markets can offer your employees the convenience of on-site snack and drink options. Plus, with healthy snack and drink options like salads, light deli sandwiches, yogurts, fruit, and more, the products sold in each micro market can be completely customized based on the tastes and preferences of your employees. The fact that employees don’t have to leave your property in order to get something healthy to eat or drink means that your employees won’t have to lose time traveling to get a snack, and can therefore return to work faster and without the risk of getting back to work late.
Durability is another major benefit of how micro markets work. Since products for sale are displayed in the open and carried by customers to the payment kiosk, products can’t get stuck as is common with traditional vending machines. Also, since micro markets accept debit and credit cards, there are no coin or dollar bill mechanisms to maintain and no cash to have to pick up and deposit. When customers pay for snacks, the profits are moved electronically into your bank account.
