Office-type locations saw a
decrease in micro market placements
in 2018. Offices typically have lower
employee counts than manufacturing
facilities. Also, the employees often
make enough per hour to eat away
from the office with extended lunch
breaks, which can mean fewer people
visit the micro market in favor of offsite locations and decreased micro
market success.

The number of smaller locations
served by a micro market continues
to rise. In 2018, the percentage of
operators who reported that their
smallest micro market locations had
fewer than 50 people increased to 40
percent, up from 26.7 percent the year
before. The popularity of tablet-based
checkout systems or mobile checkout
at markets makes smaller locations
more viable options.
There is more innovation being
made by technology suppliers in serving these smaller markets. Technology unveiled at the 2019 NAMA
Show included more low-cost checkout systems. There were also payment systems on vending machines
that can act as a scanner for nearby
snacks or food, taking the place of a
kiosk. The future will be in utilizing these hybrid technologies and
expanding into more retail and public venues with locked cooler systems
and cashier-less stores also displayed
at the recent industry trade show.
