If you’re a larger workplace seeking quality refreshments for your employees, then you’ve probably narrowed down your options to a Micro Market and a cafeteria. Both provide extensive choice for the larger workplace, and both improve the productivity of your workforce. This is where the similarities end, however. The fact is that the cafeteria is an archaic refreshment solution, and the younger, fresher Micro Market is significantly pulling ahead. Here’s why.
1) The Micro Market is the ultimate ‘grab-and-go’ solution. A Cafeteria is not.
The Micro Market stocks over 400 products in an aesthetically-pleasing design, including hot and cold drinks, fresh food, snacks and confectionary. All products are pre-packaged and are placed on shelving, in refrigerators and on countertops, so you never need be away from your work for long when you’re in need of refreshment. Just select, pay and go.
2) The Micro Market allows for bulk buying. A Cafeteria does not.
The Micro Market uses an advanced self-service checkout, similar to the one you’d find at your local supermarket. This makes it easy to scan multiple items in one go. Seeing as the Micro Market stocks products for the working day and beyond, including shampoo and kitchen roll, you can easily purchase something for your home alongside the items for your lunch break!
3) The Micro Market serves a wide range of locations. A Cafeteria won’t.
The Micro Market can be tailored to suit each individual workplace. Just give us your requirements and space to work with, and we can pretty much take care of the rest. Whilst the Micro Market works well for businesses with over 100 employees, it can be flexible for sites that are even larger. Additionally, the Micro Market can work well in environments ranging from manufacturing to offices.
4) The Micro Market requires a smaller footprint. A Cafeteria needs more space.
Because the Micro Market stocks pre-packaged products, there is no need for extra space for a prep or storage area. The Micro Market is all about product display and sales, and equipment such as the shelving and payment terminal are flexible. No matter how big or small the space is, the Micro Market can work for you.
5) The Micro Market requires no additional staff. A Cafeteria does.
The Micro Market is entirely operated by us, and requires no input from the customer on a day-to-day basis. We have a bespoke system in place that makes us aware of products that are proving popular and what needs stocking up, and we also take care of other maintenance such as cleaning and tidying. The Micro Market is designed to unmanned, though we can add CCTV for your convenience.
6) The Micro Market is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A Cafeteria won’t be.
In the past, traditional refreshment solutions don’t accommodate for unusual shift patterns, such as night shifts. This means that productivity can suffer. The Micro Market is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the cashless, payment terminals are always available to use. Now you can go for a quick drink or bite to eat no matter the time of day.
7) The Micro Market can make a big impression on your visitors. The Cafeteria is a bit…boring.
As mentioned, we tailor the Micro Market to suit your workplace, and we can add your corporate branding and colours. This makes your market truly unique to you, and creates a grand impression on any potential clients and visitors.
The need for a Micro Market.
The Micro Market carries countless benefits over the out-of-date cafeteria. It’s a great way to show your employees that you care about their morale and wellbeing, and is the ultimate tool for a higher productivity level.
