Increasing global competition, rapid digitisation and flexible time models are essentially changing the future workplaces.
Many companies are increasingly taking proactive steps and developing modern office concepts to create a better and productive work environment. In this effort to create a conducive work environment, micro markets in Australia are playing an extremely decisive role.
What is a Micro market?
A micro market is a miniature and automated convenience store that sits in a workplace. Cheaper than a regular cafeteria and healthier than the vending machine, the revolutionary micro market allows the employees to purchase their favourite food and drink.
Micro markets have a series of enticing open shelves and refrigerated units that stocked with a wide variety of fun, nutritious and exciting food/beverage options. In short, a micro market is an automated, in-house and self-serving supermarket that provide your employees with the convenience to have quick grub at odd hours without leaving the office premise.
