What is a micromarket?
As employees spend less and less time in the office on average, maintaining canteens is becoming a challenge for many companies. A micromarket offers a cost-saving alternative and a lot of flexibility: you can usually determine the size of the micromarket yourself and individually choose which products are offered.
In essence, a micromarket is a self-service kiosk where you can buy fresh food, snacks, and drinks.

When does a micromarket make sense?
In general, a micromarket is worthwhile for all companies that want to offer their employees and clients various drinks and snacks. Depending on the size of the company and the number of employees, we recommend micromarkets especially for medium-sized and large companies. But the "mini-supermarket" can also be advantageous for small companies, as the size of the market vending can be adapted in a modular way. In this case, companies should check the size of the micromarket carefully beforehand and measure the office space.

An alternative to the micromarket is a smart fridge. Such an intelligent fridge can communicate with the internet.

Alternatively, there are various vending machines for self-supply that you can set up in your office or commercial space.
