Vending Machine vs. Micro Market

We have a question: why do we keep using costly, outdated, single-purpose machines, like vending machines, to provide snacks? Sure they conveniently provide us with food in the workplace, but in all honesty, these clunky giants just aren’t cutting it anymore.

Let's give you a scenario you might have found yourself in once or twice...

It’s 3:27 pm and there is exactly 1 hour and 33 minutes left in your workday. You’ve taken your lunch and your afternoon break, but your stomach is still growling. So you slump into the elevator and down to the vending machine on the 1st floor. But when you get there you realize the only thing left in it is gum, peanuts, and two different types of icing-caked pastries.

What would YOU do? Complain about the machine never being fully stocked, but eat some peanuts anyways? Not worth it.

So you’re at a fork in the road, it’s big decision time. You want the luxury of having food in the workplace, but you don’t:

  • Have the time to look into different food and beverage service options

  • Have the money to purchase vending equipment

  • Want to get stuck in a contract with a service provider
