At Atlantic Vending, we are excited to offer the latest innovation in food service for break rooms! We have partnered with Avanti Markets to install micro markets in workplaces throughout New Jersey that allow you to get rid of the tired vending machines filled with chips, candy, and soda, and provide fresh, healthy options along side classic snacks. Imagine having a mini-convenience store right in your break room, offering a broad selection of food and drinks with convenient and secure ways to pay.
What is a Micro Market?
A micro market is a completely automated, self-service store that features coolers and open shelving, instead of traditional vending machines. This allows employees to pick out items with ease, enjoy actual meals rather than just candy bars and chips, and pay with a secure, convenient phone app or key card with money loaded on it.
A Fresh Alternative to New Jersey Vending Services
When your employees want a snack or a drink, most vending machines only provide sugar-laden, sodium-filled selections. Not only is this unhealthy, it can even harm productivity at your New Jersey workplace. From a short-term perspective, these snacks often lead to an energy crash in which your employees are nodding off through the afternoon. From a long-term perspective, relying on sodas and snacks puts your employees’ health at risk, leading to higher health costs and costly absenteeism.
Studies show that when healthier items are available, people will take advantage of them. With our micro markets, we can help you contribute to workplace wellness as we stock the coolers and shelves with a better variety of food:
- Fresh salads
- Deli-style sandwiches
- Fresh fruit, fruit cups and veggie snacks
- Frozen meals from Healthy Choice® and other brands
- Breakfast sandwiches
- Protein bars
- Snacks including almonds and trail mix
Of course, there are still classic options available to enjoy, but the important thing is your team is empowered to make the best choice for their needs.
New Jersey Micro Markets Offer Unmatched Convenience
Having a micro market on-site is convenient for you and your employees. Instead of your team members having to go out for lunch, taking up much of their break and leaving them little time to eat or risk coming back late, they can enjoy a cafe-quality meal right in your break room. Even better, because it’s automated and self-serve, it’s available 24 hours a day. If you run a night shift or have overnight security or cleaning, they have the same opportunity to enjoy a relaxing lunch as the daytime employees, rather than relying on soda and candy bars to get them through their shift.
Convenient Payment Options
In addition to your New Jersey micro market being a convenient way to enjoy a snack or a meal, our fully automated, self-service market makes payment a breeze. Unlike having to worry about keeping dollars or change for a vending machine, our markets come equipped with a payment kiosk where your employees can pay through the following methods:
- Credit or debit
- Mobile payments with a smart phone app, Apple Pay™, Samsung Pay™, or Android Pay™
- Market cards similar to a grocery loyalty card where employees scan and pay and reload money to their account at the kiosk or online
- Fingerprint payments
Employer Based Programs
Whether you’re offering a workplace wellness solution, you want to encourage your team to utilize the market, or you want to provide additional benefits to your team, we can help!
- Employer discounts on healthy food and beverage
- Direct payroll deduction
- Meal allowances either as a subsidy if you’re required to provide meals or simply as a bonus to your team!
Micro Markets Offer Security for You and Your Team
We understand that security is important for both you and your team. You want your employees to feel confident in using our payment options, market card, and mobile app, which is why operations and systems are certified annually by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This ensures that all data is secure and reduces the risk of fraud, identity theft, and other security issues.
Customize Your New Jersey Micro Market
Whether you have a small office, a large building, or you even want to provide an on-site cafe to an apartment building, office park, or co-working center, we will work with you to create the ideal micro market vending setup. Our markets are scalable, so as you grow, you can add more options, and we can stock your markets anywhere from two to five times a week, depending on your needs.
