What is a Micro Market?

By definition, a micro market is a custom designed vending market or mart with a 

self-checkout kiosk. 


    Micro markets can replace current vending programs, or act as a supplementary option for employees and staff. Micro markets provide users with a convenience store feel with vending options and prices. 

They bring a whole new level of selection, service, and satisfaction to your break room and work campus. 


    Although micro markets may possess the general feel of a small convenience store, 

they are their own style of marketplace.

They offer more products than a vending machine but less than a full grocery mart. 

Think freshly prepared lunches, healthy snacks, and drinks that people can access whenever the mood strikes. 


    Empire Micro markets focus on the needs and preferences of a select group of consumers and offer a wider range of “better for you” items and products specifically items that are healthy and refreshing. 


    After micro market patrons have made their selections, they check themselves out using a 

self-serve kiosk. This allows users to be efficient by quickly accessing the items they want throughout the day. Instead of having to carry cash or change to make purchases, customers can charge their purchases to an account set up within the micro market or swipe a credit card. In some instances, micro market checkout kiosks also accept payment with a fingerprint. Easy, quick, convenient, and focused on long-term success. 

What makes empire markets better?

There’s a common misconception revolving the Micro Market Industry, especially with this type of specialty vending being so new. 

The misconception is that all micro markets are the same. 

if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.


     However, those who state this have yet to see an Empire Market. 

What makes us so different is not only the quality of shelving, technology, branding, and selection but most importantly our attention to providing the best service imaginable.

 When the Abernathy family set out to create Empire Vending, and eventually branching into Empire Market, we knew that vending services are most likely the least of your priorities in your already busy life, and when you or an employee goes on break they should expect just that, a break. 

Not a confrontation with an old faulty machine, or empty shelves in a market.


     Which is why Empire uses all brand new machines, coolers, and technology, as well as the implementation of a cloud based inventory tracking system to ensure your favorite snacks and drinks are fully stocked before you ever realize they’re running low. 

In addition to all of this we use the leading company in micro market kiosks “365 Retail Markets” that gives you the option you to create an account, and pay directly from your phone. 


    We agree that vending services should be the least of your priorities and that is why we have made it the first in ours. 


    Give Empire Market a try, and you’ll see how we bring a whole new meaning to convenience.
