Benefits of a Micro Market – Give Them What They’re Hungry For!

Midday cravings – solved. That “hangry” feeling – gone. Time crunch issue –no problem. Healthy snacks they prefer – done.

Those are some of the benefits of offering your employees a micro market at your workplace or facility. Adding a micro market enables you to:

  • Provide healthy snacks, meals, and beverages on site for employees seeking a quick breakfast, lunch, or coffee break bite
  • Support corporate health initiatives – with health and wellness on everyone’s minds, you can create a great foundation by stocking these and other foods and beverages that lead by healthful examples. gourmet salads and kombucha, anyone?
  • Addresses what today’s employees want – convenient ways to fuel up and hydrate with the latest beverages and foods, plus the ability to satisfy carvings at a moment’s notice.
  • Enhance productivity – the convenience of an on-site micro market 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; micro markets can be connected to a smartphone app for browsing selections in advance.
  • Boost morale – like the employee break room, the micro market is another spot for your team to meet up for a few minutes of positive social interaction as they peruse the many options available. Give them something delicious to chew during those sweet tooth moments (everyone likes to sneak a favorite cookie or candy bar now and then).
