We wanted to reach out before the Valentine’s weekend with a reminder for new stores that will be opening…
Going forward, Three Square Market is requiring that all stores to be opened follow these requirements:
- 32M will have a minimum of 24 hours notice from the operator/distributor prior to opening.
- The market location opening will also take place during the standard 32M business hours of 6:30 a.m. CST – 5:00 p.m. CST (Monday – Friday).
If the conditions are not met, then the market opening will be postponed; so that Marni, Michael, Dan or another member of the 32M staff has the adequate resources available to them to assist you with a successful store opening. This is equally as beneficial to all of you, our partners, to ensure you have the most successful opening possible.
Please reach out to Dan with all questions, comments, concerns or sarcasm. Thank you and have a great weekend!

Claim a part of the $116.21 that individuals spend this time of year at your own location – especially if you have a higher percentage of male market-users!
Over the last few days we’ve been focusing on ways to assist operators in being more successful in their business, and a couple of our latest stand out operators came to mind …
Rome Refreshments has been an operator with us for almost two years now. Rome goes the extra mile with everything in their markets – from their attention grabbing kiosk design to the attention to detail in all of their market’s features. If you haven’t seen one of their markets – then you haven’t looked at any of the 32M marketing material. Rome definitely has one of 32M’s most stand-out locations!
Another reason why Rome Refreshments really takes it to the next level is their use of the entire Three Square Market system. Rome leaves no report, setting, or feature un-touched. Rome uses every possible part of the 32M system to its fullest extent … and their operation and progress over this time really shows!
A&H Vending is a relatively new operator to 32M. What they may be lacking in time as a 32M operator, clearly doesn’t show from their extensive knowledge of the 32M system. Like our previously mentioned operator A&H utilizes every feature possible with the 32M system to absolutely maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of his market.
A&H leaves no slacking in looks of their breakroom markets! From the story, it is safe to assume that Jim & Bridget (A&H) would not go into their latest location without some serious renovations – review the before and after pictures to see the change. The new A&H market in this location is such a hit the President/CEO has decided, with the help of A&H, to put the breakroom markets into all of their locations in the next few months. David, the President/CEO of the location, even blogged about the success of their new breakroom – which has brought about a significant amount of market requests for Jim and Bridget to go through!
Both of these examples clearly show operators that success can be made by simply doing it right vs. doing it fast! 32M extends their gratitude and major congratulations to both of these operators for their commitment and excellence!
For answers to any questions, or additional help and training on the 32M system, please put in your requests by emailing MarniV@32Market.com, DanH@32Market.com or MichaelT@32Market.com. Or schedule a training at http://threesquaremarket.schedulista.com/
Good Afternoon Everyone,
Although many individuals in the industry understand the term “Micro Market” and maybe even those around you on a daily basis now understand the term …
However, Micro Market can be misleading to those that do not deal with our industry every day.
What is a Micro Market? A BreakRoom Market – it can be small or large … really it just needs to fit in the break room and fit that specific break room’s needs. We encourage you to embrace and use this term “BreakRoom Market” with your end-user clients as it will make a clear distinction, and a clear terminology about the market you plan on providing them!
Ask and you shall receive! We have recently updated our standard kiosk decals to a refreshed style. Take a look and let us know what you think!?!
The kiosk operation and trouble-shooting manual is out and available for use. To request a digital or hard copy of this manual please contact your 32Market staff – Dan, Michael or Myself.
