Micro markets have proven to be a transformative solution for vending operators looking to expand their business and improve customer satisfaction. Micro markets are essentially self-service convenience stores that can be installed in offices, schools, hospitals, and other closed-loop locations. They offer a wider selection of snacks, beverages, and meals than traditional vending machines, and allow for customers to pay for several items in one transaction.
If you’re a vending operator who has vending machines in a closed-loop location, switching out some of these machines for a micro market can help increase your sales by 70%. This is due to the flexibility of products and loyalty programs that micro markets in closed environments provide, which both increase customer satisfaction and spend.
Micro markets have shelves and fridges and can be set up any way an operator likes. This allows for a variety of products to be sold, because they are not restricted by size and shape as they often are in vending machines. This allows for operators to sell more expensive products such as healthy snacks, salads, sandwiches, and other prepared meals. This is especially valuable in closed-loop environments such as offices and universities where employees and students may be in a rush and looking for a quick meal on-the-go.
This kind of environment ensures that operators have a solid repeat customer base, which can help them build effective loyalty programs to upsell their customers. An operators’ addressable market is set out for them: employees, students, or whoever may be at that specific location. Therefore, offering employee or student discounts, special promotions on popular products, punch card campaigns, and other promotions can help drive revenue. Say you’ve gathered insights from your management software that tells you that employees like to purchase coffee every day, offer a free muffin after the purchase of 10 coffees. These extra perks help keep your customer base satisfied and coming back.
