Micromarkets - A Modern Alternative to Vending

Office self-service kiosks are vending machines of the future

The breakroom for offices has evolved. Black Tie Services is a leader in providing vending modernization including replacement of vending machines with cafeteria style, healthy food options, and unrivaled selection. Avanti Markets and Company Kitcehn offer a far more healthy, convenient and efficient solution to traditional vending.

Vending machines have been a stalwart in most office environments for years, but they have recently given rise to a new type of automated fresh food vending service. Distributors of so-called micromarkets are making the most of the constant need for fresh and convenient food options, to create a new niche for self-service kiosks in offices.

Black Tie Services is one of the biggest distributors of this type of healthy vending machine solution in the Washington DC and Baltimore areas and provides both Avanti and Company Kitchen micromarkets for every space and each individual environment.

Advantages Over Vending Machines

Black Tie Services believes that an automated healthy vending machine service is a safer and more cost-effective alternative for businesses. The self-service kiosks boast 24-hour security cameras and immediate on-call service from the distributor in case of security problems. The fully automated checkout process ensures there is no cash money involved and guarantees your tills will never be short. Thanks to a quick and easy scanning system, each chosen product is reliably recognized and charged.

Our markets are completely customizable...Each market is designed specifically for your workplace. Replacing your vending machines with the technology of a micromarket eliminates the frustration of dealing with refunds, change, hung products or broken machines.

Customers are quickly taking to this novel way of buying a quick snack or lunch...and with good reason! Micromarkets offer a much wider and healthier range of products than the traditional vending machines and accept convenient payment methods, such as a debit or credit card, or market key tag.

Variety, Healthy

As opposed to traditional vending machines, they also give consumers the option to handle the products before purchasing and checking their nutritional value. The variety of meal, snacks and beverages available in a micromarket is extensive:

  • » Beverages - Colas, Sodas, Fruit Drinks, Water, Health Drinks, and More
  • » Snacks - Edible items in hand held servings including; chips, fruit, granola bars, etc
  • » Food/Entrees - Complete Meals including salads, vegetable sides, sandwiches, soups, and main entrees

A self-service kiosk at the office offers advantages for everyone. Employees no longer have to leave the site during lunch hours and employers, in turn, are able to keep lunch breaks as short as possible and prevent employee lateness. Research has shown that both workers and employers are unequivocally enthusiastic about the new concept and we have no doubt this will only continue in the future.

Between our competitive prices and our vending alternatives, the choice is easy. For additional information about Black Tie Services please complete our on-line information request or call us at 800-969-VEND.
