Changing Work Environments: Food Service Alternatives

The workplace is changing moving forward. It is a reality we can’t avoid. More space, less contact with others, and a general heightened awareness for employee health and safety.

But how can you create a fulfilling work environment with the amenities your employees have come to expect? And do so while maintaining recommending distancing and safety standards?

The time for cafeterias, salad bars and buffets is probably over, or at least on hold for now. The new norm may mean it’s time to consider an unattended retail solution for your workplace.

The New Normal for Changing Work Environments: Micro Markets

A solution like a micro market can offer the convenience of food service, without overhead costs associated with running an on-site cafeteria or always having your employees leaving the office to get a bite to eat. In fact, you can probably anticipate a reluctance to venturing out for lunch and typical options that your employees count on may be limited.

When looking at alternative options, micro markets offer more than a traditional vending setup can.

These markets include an array of fresh and healthy options including salads, sandwiches, frozen entrees, and really anything else that may be in demand for your employees. That could include snacks, drinks, or even pantry staples. Your micro market operator can be a trusted source of packaged, fresh foods to meet employee needs and keep them safe.

Touch-less payment options mean contact with frequently touched surfaces can be limited or entirely eliminated. A shopper can pick their items, scan at the kiosk and pay without ever using the touchscreen.

Count on your Market Operator

Market operators, those who stock and service your market, have placed an emphasis on standard cleaning practices. You can read more about those here.

Your market operator will stock your market regularly with products your employees want and need the most.

Coffee services are also generally available, with the latest bean-to-cup solutions that provide an incredibly fresh and satisfying experience for coffee lovers. Fresh espressos and lattes with the touch of a button and the convenience of staying on site instead of venturing out.

Micro markets are all about convenience and satisfying consumer needs through a seamless unattended retail experience. Employers who set up a micro market in their employee break rooms can enjoy a variety of benefits including improved employee efficiency and enhanced company culture.
