  • Provide healthy snacks, fresh meals, and ice-cold beverages on site for employees seeking a quick breakfast, lunch, coffee break or light mid-day snack.
  • Support corporate health initiatives – with health and wellness on everyone’s minds, you can create a great foundation by offering fresh produce to your employees to lead by healthful examples.
  • Address what today’s employees want – micro market vending services are a convenient way to fuel and hydrate your team with the latest beverages and foods, and can satisfy their carvings at a moment’s notice.
  • Enhance productivity – the convenience of an on-site micro market vending kiosk can’t be beat. There’s no need to run to the corner convenience store for a sandwich, or deal with elevators to get downstairs.

  • Boost morale – like the employee break room, micro market vending kiosks provide another space for your team to meet up for a few minutes of positive social interaction as they peruse the many options available.
