Micro Market FAQs

What is a micro market?

Micro markets are unstaffed, self-service retail spaces that provide food and drink options in unexpected locations. Instead of an employee at a register, micro markets have a self-checkout kiosk for customers to “grab, pay and go.” They’re popping up in break rooms, lobbies and other locations where people are looking for easy food options — often as a replacement for a vending machine.

How much does a micro market cost?

The estimated cost of a micro market can vary based on the size of the market and how many customers you expect to serve. We encourage you to talk to a Cantaloupe representative, who can help you come up with a more accurate estimate.

What will my micro market look like? 

Each Cantaloupe Go micro market is customised to the space it occupies and your sales rep has reference photos of markets created by other Cantaloupe customers to give you an idea of the finished product. Additionally, our team can create a mock-up of your future market based on space dimensions and photos of the intended location.

Can I customise my micro market?

There are several aspects of your market that can be customised. Not only can we help you create custom signage and fixture headers to represent your brand or your clients’ brand, but you can also customise your kiosk screens in the Cantaloupe Go web dashboard. 

How do I get started with a micro market?

If you’re ready to set up a new micro market, connect with a Cantaloupe sales rep to plan your market and place your order.

Do your micro markets integrate with any other systems or software? 

Our self-service kiosks for micro markets fully integrate with the Cantaloupe Seed platform as well as other vending management systems, including Vendmanager.

Are there any fees for a micro market?

Ask your Cantaloupe rep for more details about our monthly fee structure for markets.
