Like almost all industries, the food-to-go sector was hit hard in 2020, with a huge 45.5% decline. But as the world slowly begins to recover, so will the food-to-go market. Experts predict this will increase by as much as 30%, thanks to more people heading back to the high-street and convenience stores.
This makes the Micro Market even more of an attractive proposition. This advanced refreshment solution has always prioritised “grab-and-go”, though with the added benefit of being from your workplace. This means your staff don’t have to head off site, even if they feel safe enough to do so.
We believe the Micro Market will play a big role in a post-Covid workplace. It is unlikely that everything will go completely back to the way it was, but the market can help your business take the small steps it needs to.
Food-to-go has always been popular. It was only due to Covid restrictions that this industry has recorded a sharp decline. People enjoy the convenience of grabbing a bite to eat without needing to take too much time out of their busy schedule, which is why it’s commonplace amongst busy workers.
And with a rise in healthier eating and higher-quality products, food-to-go has become even more enticing.
The Micro Market is a dream for employees. It takes the convenience of grab-and-go the next level, ensuring your team don’t even need to leave the premises to find what they want. It’s your very own “shop” or convenience store in the heart of your workplace.
Not only will this be ideal for those who perhaps don’t want to leave the comfort of their workplace just yet, but it’s also ideal if you’re going to be adopting flexible working moving forward. That’s because the Micro Market is open and available 24 hours a day.
The Micro Market is all about quality. A selection of pre-packaged products are available including freshly prepared sandwiches, rolls and salads, which means you can take whatever you want back to your desk.
And if you do want to take a break, and there are plenty of reasons why you should – we can design your market to be intertwined with your dedicated break out area. This promotes a meaningful wind down period with colleagues, increasing morale and strengthening relationships.
Whilst the high-street and similar environments are now deemed to safe enough to head back to, your team may still have concerns. The Micro Market delivers peace of mind in the comfort of your own workplace, so you don’t have to come into contact with large groups of people.
From you as an employers’ perspective, it also means staff aren’t as likely to head over their dedicated break time, if they have one.
It’s also deemed to actually be one of the most hygienic refreshment solutions, with self-service and cashless payments being some of the key characteristics.
With the food-to-go market set to drastically rise this year, could the Micro Market be the best solution for your workforce to get back involved? Contact us on 01922 640777 or at email@example.com to find out.
