There are a lot of options on the market for micro market operators, and it’s easy to pick based on just one piece of information … BUT don’t get trapped by picking the lowest cost or the highest retail price point! Just because something is the lowest price often times doesn’t mean it’s the best value.  Let’s take a look!

See our Comparison Chart Here: http://bit.ly/2yT76wW

  1. Your standard cup brewer (Any single-serve machine)
    The positives: low-cost investment, low maintenance, popular products.
    The negatives: This brewer is the same as many household single-serve brewers. Low originality can lose you a large percentage of sales, short life-span, a high cost of product = low-profit margins.
    Where do we recommend?: We recommend using these machines as a trial coffee solution or in very small office settings. 
  2.  The medium level coffee brewer (Our favorite is Newco)
    The positives: medium-cost investment, very low cost of products, high-quality output, and the highest profit margins. 
    The negatives: increased maintenance and the cost of entry can be daunting for a first timer.
    Where do we recommend using it?: We recommend using these in medium to large markets, and even small markets with high coffee consumption. These are the top-rated employer-paid OCS solution coffee makers as chosen by your peers! Overall, this is a great machine for any market setting!
  3. The high-level coffee brewer (We use Bravilor Bonamat, straight from our European operators to you!)
    The positive: Quality, quality quality.
    The negatives: High cost of entry, involved maintenance.
    Where do we recommend using it?: We recommend this option anywhere you have discerning coffee drinkers. It’s great for both medium and large markets and can definitely keep up with volume output. You can schedule maintenance alerts and the machine does a lot of the work for you. This coffee maker has top-notch quality coffee and specialty coffee products. If you’re competing with local coffee houses, this is the way to go! You can price your products under the expensive chains but still, make a great profit margin!

Bottom-line: There are a lot of great options and any one of them might be right for you. Make sure you think about your clients, your locations, your business owner, the long-term, and your schedule before you make the choice that is right for you. AND if you need help … we’re here for you!

4 Ways Bundling Will Take You From Great To The GOOAT (a.k.a. Greatest Operator Of All Time)

We see you, Operator! Look at you go all successful and on the rise, making us proud!

But as great as you’re doing, we’re going to help you get to that next level … with bundling! Let’s dig in …

What’s this “bundling” we keep talking about??

We took our top-sellers, strategically created combinations to drive sales in a variety of market spaces, and packaged, or bundled, them together! It’s our one-stop-shop method going one step further. Instead of navigating our website for the items you want, find them all in one place and purchase an entire market in one click!

•The Mammoth Bundle•

Why Bundle?

Bundle for the 4 Bs …

1) Bundling = Benefiting

Bundling is convenient, provides economies of scale, is built for success, and is adaptable.

•Convenient• Operators have multiple needs … Bundles combine multiple solutions into one simple package.

•Economies of Scale• Save money! Bundling saves us money by reducing waste and using fewer materials for packaging. Then we pass our savings along to you by offering a super low price! Get a complete, high-value market at a significantly reduced price.

•Success• We’ve done the thinking for you … We bundled the combinations of products that will best set you up for a successful market. There are bundles made perfect for all market sizes!

•Adaptability• Looking for something in between bundles? Start with a bundle and add individual products as necessary. That way, you’re still saving time and money while also ensuring you get the perfect market for your location.

2) Bundling = Bold

Have confidence! You’re offering the very best markets to your clients – that’s what our bundles are for!

3) Bundling = Balancing

Build a thriving market in one click & still have time to build a thriving personal life. Just think – Instead of taking time to navigate through the web store and decide which combination of products is going to work, you can spend under 5 minutes choosing which complete, packaged market fits best! Use the time you save for YOU.

4) Bundling = Brilliantly unfair

Turn every potential client into a loyal client when you show them what a boss you are … because you spent your time focusing on impressing them while we took care of the market design for you! That’s an awesomely unfair advantage!

Now that you’re on the bundling bandwagon, take a look at them!

The “Barriers” to opening a micro market …

Micro markets can be intimidating to those who have not experienced them first-hand, but we are here to calm your fears!

The number 1 reason we hear for avoiding micro markets is, you guessed it, theft. Operators rightfully worry about theft of their inventory in an open-concept market.

While it’s true you can’t eliminate theft completely, over the years we’ve developed added protections against this, and can proudly say that less than 1% of our operators experience theft issues that need to be dealt with.  AND additionally, 100% of our operators have had our assistance and full support in dealing with it!

Theft deterrents from 32M: 

  • The Red X – We originated this feature over a year ago to make it very clear when a transaction is not completed properly.
  • Time-stamped images are taken of the person at the kiosk when a product is scanned but not purchased.
    • Pair this feature with your security camera systems and inventory, you’ll easily pinpoint any issues quickly.
  • Worried about mobile purchases? We’ve got you covered! Real-time reports list transactions for your market including the platform used (kiosk or mobile).

Take a look at our video about security features!

Another barrier we hear about is cost.  VendingSolutions.com, lists the average cost of a single vending machine at $3000 (snack) to $3600 (beverage).  Guess what, at 32M that’s also the average cost of a kiosk! Bonus, you only need one kiosk per market with our patented mobile application!

Let’s average it out! 

1 snack and 1 beverage machine at a location = approximately $6600 plus the cost of all product.

A micro market set up from 32M including kiosk, shelving cooler, cooler surround and select product package  = $5195 plus the cost of the remaining products.

Benefits of a micro market with 32M:

  • Credit/Debit acceptance
  • Automatic Inventory Management Software
  • Real-Time reporting
  • Pick for your store before being on-site (pre-kitting)
  • Monitor your market from anywhere at anytime
  • Start up costs are LESS than vending
  • So much more!

Learn about pre-kitting to save time and money, in our awesome video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpSSzf4SAXo

Save money, make money, and have happier clients! It’s really a no-brainer!

The Finishing Touch …

In 2016, we added fixtures to our All-In-One package from 32M and over the past year, it has become its own entity, 32F.  (Not to worry, we’re still a one-stop-shop for our micro market operators!!) With its industry best pricing and product, 32F has grown to be more than just for ‘our’ micro market operators, and we’re serious when we say it’s “the finishing touch.”

What does the finishing touch mean? 

  • the extra mile
  • bringing everything together
  • a polished look and feel
  • completing the look/project/space

As a micro market operator, you may be wondering why it’s important to add all these pieces to your market.  The answer is simple … in an attractive, clean, well set-up store customers are not only willing to spend more money, pay higher price points, but they are also more likely to come back.  And that is really the goal, isn’t it?

Micro markets are beneficially and attractive to business owners because give back their employees’ time. And time is really what we are all worried about, isn’t it?

Time=Money

Your time putting in the extra effort and finishing touches will win you more opportunities for markets making your business and their’s more profitable. To learn more about our finishing touches and how we can get you started … go to 32Fixtures.com or call your 32M sales rep!
