How we installed a Los Angeles micro-market upstairs

Recently, we took on the challenge to install a micro-market in our client’s upstairs break room. This was unique because most Los Angeles micro-markets are installed on the ground level. Our team had some concerns.  The biggest concern was that we would have to haul large equipment up and down a flight of stairs. While we hadn’t done this before, we rose to the challenge. After all, we’re in the business of providing full-service refreshment solutions to Southern California businesses.

Here’s a sneak peek into what it took to install this type of micro-market.

Planning the Los Angeles Micro-Market Install

Our team carefully planned each part of the job to avoid any surprises or unknowns. We identified the following factors for the installation.

  • Number of days it would take to complete the job
  • A plan to dismantle the outdated break room
  • Number of team members needed for the job
  • Equipment needed for the micro-market
  • Equipment needed to bring the micro-market upstairs
  • Products to fully stock the market
  • Safety of our team and the office employees

Most importantly, because we identified these factors before we started the job, we were able to plan a schedule and set the client’s expectations for the installation.

Installation Day

Micro-Market, Los Angeles micro-market, break room, refreshment solutions Our careful planning and preparation allowed us to complete the micro-market installation in two days. During the first day, our six team members carefully dismantled the old break room. Next, we brought in the new micro-market for installation. Our top concern during the installation was the safety of our team members and the office employees.  Therefore, the team stayed in constant communication with one another to ensure all team members had specific assignments. We also made sure that all team members were aware of their surroundings, especially since the equipment was being moved up and down the stairs. 

During the second day, we brought in all of the products. The office employees were delighted to see a wide variety of beverages, snacks, fresh foods, salads, breakfast items, and frozen foods in their new open-air marketplace.

Benefits of a Micro-Market to Los Angeles Employees

We are proud to have successfully completed this job for two reasons. Firstly, we gave the client a great alternative to traditional vending. Secondly, we met their demand for an upstairs install. Moreover, we know that our Los Angeles client’s employees will benefit from their new micro-market.

  • Employees will be able to access a variety of refreshing beverages, delicious meals, and tasty snacks in their break room, thereby increasing productivity.
  • Employees will have a gathering space to collaborate on projects, share ideas, and make connections.
  • Increased satisfaction and overall office morale
  • Support health and wellness goals for a healthy lifestyle

How Technology Plays a Role in the Los Angeles Micro-Market

Our client was especially pleased with the technology built into the micro-market, which means less work for them.

  • Open 24/7 to accommodate employees throughout the entire day.
  • Employees can use their mobile phones to make a purchase with the secure self-checkout kiosk.
  • Product inventory is remotely monitored so we can re-stock the micro-market automatically.
  • Micro-market is monitored by video so the office doesn’t need to designate anyone to watch the space.

This was an exciting request but we were up for the challenge.  After all, it’s clients like this that help us continue to grow and learn as a company.

What is a Los Angeles Micro-Market? (And, Why You Need One!)

Wikipedia describes Micro-markets as “a retail sector, closely tied to the vending machine industry that utilizes automated self-checkout technology to operate in locations that need an unattended payment experience.” That’s a great start but let’s dive into what a Los Angeles micro-market truly is.

What is a Micro-Market?

Consider a Los Angeles micro-market, an elevated convenience store right in your office. One that can be conveniently open 24/7 so that all shift workers have access to the same refreshments.

Unlike vending machines, micro-markets offer flexible shelving, a micro-market offers flexible stocking options. They have various prepackaged refreshments such as sandwiches, cheese platters, nuts, salads, and so much more. Each market is customized and stocked with precisely what you and your employees want.

Many Los Angeles businesses also include a coffee station in their micro-market. So that their employees don’t have to go off-site to grab their favorite coffee drinks.

Micro-markets include numerous touchless technologies. Employees can enjoy our touchless Bevi water cooler that allows you to order and pay for your sparkling water straight from your phone. Or they can pay for their other refreshments straight from their phone using our mobile payment technologies. Your Los Angeles micro-market also contains remote monitoring technologies. This technology is used to make sure your micro-market is fully stocked and is always in tip-top shape!

Benefits of a Micro-Market

Micro-markets do wonders for the Lose Angeles office. They create a space for employees to refresh, connect and collaborate. Many businesses also experience: 

  • Boosted engagement
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved overall wellbeing of employees
  • Employees willing to stay on-site
