When they were first developed, micro markets seemed a bit too good to be true. An open market concept that operates on an honor system? Well, the modern vending model has been gaining traction and proving themselves as a viable option for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Research today shows there are some 10,000 micro markets in break rooms and company campuses across the United kingdom.. 

Micro markets are a growing trend in the vending industries. Instead of a traditional vending machine, food and beverage options are stored in coolers and on shelves for easy, self-serve access. The convenience store models that micro markets are based on allow users to take advantage of a wide selection of food and beverage items. Vending machines are the most commonly reported source of work site food. Two-thirds of larger sized employers have vending options available, and about a quarter of smaller sized employers do.

What are you doing to keep your employees happy?


By definition, a micro market is a custom designed vending market or mart with a self-checkout kiosk. Micro markets can replace current vending programs, or act as a supplementary option for employees and staff. Micro markets provide users with a convenience store feel with vending options and prices. They bring a whole new level of selection, service, and satisfaction to your break room and work campus. Although micro markets may possess the general feel of a small convenience store, they are their own style of marketplace.

They offer more products than a vending machine but less than a full grocery mart. Think freshly prepared lunches, healthy snacks, and drinks that people can access whenever the mood strikes. Micro markets focus on the needs and preferences of a select group of consumers and offer a wider range of “better for you” items and products – specifically items that are healthy and refreshing. 

After micro market patrons have made their selections, they check themselves out using a self-serve kiosk. This allows users to be efficient by quickly accessing the items they want throughout the day. Instead of having to carry cash or change to make purchases, customers can charge their purchases to an account set up within the micro market or swipe a credit card. In some instances, micro market checkout kiosks also accept payment with a fingerprint. Easy, quick, convenient, and focused on long-term success. 

“Imagine a convenience-style store in your break room filled with a variety of beverages, chips, candies, fresh salads and wraps on shelves instead of behind a machine front.”


Did you know workplace productivity is directly correlated to nutrition? One of the best features of a micro market is not only the convenience of accessible, healthy food items, but the fact that they are self-serve, and do not require any additional manpower to serve employees or tenants. These convenient, technologically advanced micro market stations take your business vending options to a whole new level. Along with an increased product selection, micro markets also offer:

  • Efficient self-checkout capabilities

  • Cutting edge inventory systems

  • Customized products and setups

Take a look at how Graddon Vending can help you and your business through a micro market.
