Bernick’s Micro Market Vending Service

Over the past 10 years, micro markets have continued to pop up throughout office spaces, healthcare campuses, manufacturing facilities, and countless other buildings. Employees need quick access to meals and snacks, and employers appreciate that a market can keep their workers on site, safely and satisfied after a healthy meal or snack.

Our micro market customers love the ability to choose healthy options, touch products, read labels, and even select the absolute most fresh and frozen treats. Vending machines will always be important, however, a Bernick’s micro market can deliver a huge benefit over traditional vending machines in the spaces where it makes sense to elevate onsite dining options. Your employees, clients, and guests in turn will appreciate the vast product selection and health benefits that come with a micro market.

And perhaps the most important aspect, as a Bernick’s micro market customer, you'll have access to the latest technology, unbeatable portfolio, and unparalleled support of our team of vending experts. Your success is important to us, and we'll do everything we can to be your most valued partner from day one.
