Across New Jersey and nationwide, office break rooms are undergoing an exciting transformation. In order to give employees options beyond candy bars and soda pops, office buildings are swapping out outdated vending services and choosing Avanti micro markets instead.
What is Micro Market Vending?
Unlike traditional vending machines where you put in a few dollar bills and select a bag of chips, granola bar, or a soda, a micro market is a fully automated mini-convenience store in your break room! There are refrigerator and freezer coolers for fresh and frozen meals and snacks and traditional shelves for shelf-stable options, too.
Not only are there tons of options for your employees to choose from, because there are open shelves, your employees can read the nutrition labels and make a sensible option before they buy. Both you and your employees will love the convenience of a fully automated system where they can pay at a self-serve kiosk.
How Are Avanti Markets Different?
Avanti markets take micro market vending to the next level. They launched their new take on the classic vending machine company in 2009 in Seattle, and in less than a decade, their micro markets have a presence across the United States and Canada. Because of their combination of convenience, ease of use, and innovation, we’re excited to partner with them to provide vending services to your New Jersey business.
Better Food Quality
While your break room micro market is 100 percent customizable, there’s an incredible array of healthy foods available for your employees to enjoy. Now, instead of only having candy or chips to choose from, there are full meals and healthy snacks, along with the classic favorites. Many of our customers offer:
- Fresh salads and sandwiches
- Fresh fruit, fruit cups and sliced veggie cups
- Frozen meals, including Healthy Choice®
- Protein bars
- Packs of almonds, sunflower seeds, and trail mix
- Breakfast sandwiches
- Even medicine and sundries (like packets of ibuprofen or lip balm)
Avanti micro markets are 100 percent automated with touch screen kiosks to make payment a breeze. Your employees grab what they want, scan their Avanti card to pay, and go on their way! No worries about a bag of chips getting caught in the spring dispenser, no refunds, no lost money – that means no hassles!
As an employer, you’ll appreciate the convenience and ease of use, too. Once the shelves and kiosk are set up, and you have our vending services scheduled on a regular basis to restock your shelves, there is virtually no maintenance necessary. Our refrigerated cases and freezer cases are Energy Star approved, so there won’t even be a major impact on your utility usage.
With our open shelving, you may be concerned about having to use the honor system with your employees. While generally everyone does the right thing, in order to prevent lost items, we include a discreet, effective security camera to keep an eye on your micro market vending area.
Benefits of Micro Market Vending at Your Business
When you choose a micro market vending company to stock your break room, you’ll see the positive impacts on your business almost immediately!
When employees come into the break room and see the attractive, modern food cases from Avanti Markets, your team will feel appreciated, and your break room will transform into an enjoyable place to relax, connect with coworkers, and re-energize! Best of all, by providing healthy options at an affordable price, your team will know that you’re concerned with their health and wellbeing, too!
Healthier, More Energized Employees
Instead of your employees getting a candy bar for a snack that will lead to a sugar crash in a few hours, they can get a protein bar, yogurt, or a piece of fruit. Over time, those small shifts lead to big changes in someone’s overall wellbeing. However, the bigger impact comes from the meal options. Micro markets make it easy for your employees to ditch the fast food that leaves them nodding off during afternoon meetings and enjoy all day energy!
How many times have meetings been delayed because people are getting back late from lunch? How often do your employees feel rushed to eat because they got hung up in the drive-thru line or traffic was worse than they thought? Avanti markets combine the best of a cafe and convenience store that’s just a few steps down the hall! Your team has more time to eat and get back to work on time without having to rush through lunch.
Micro Markets for Apartments & Office Parks
While micro market vending is often used in single business break rooms, it works in all types of environments. If you have an apartment complex or you’re a commercial landlord with an office building that houses a variety of small businesses and companies, you can attract more tenants with a micro market. This can be an excellent investment for your business!
