The Metro 24 Market.
A Healthy alternative to vending.
Want to provide economical in-house dining? And healthy meal options? The Metro 24 Market — powered by Avanti Markets — lets you do just that. Give your employees fresh, healthy meal selections — without staffing a cafeteria. Sandwiches. Wraps. Salads. Fruit. All prepared daily in our Memphis Catering Company kitchen.
You’ll also be able to provide employees with all their other favorites. Granola, ice cream, chips, sodas, juices. The list goes on. You decide what’s available in your Metro 24 Market. And the kiosks keep track of inventory, so your micromarket is always stocked.
How does it work?
Employees can load an Avanti Markets® card using cash, credit, or debit cards. They can also check balances and load their cards online. And by using the Avanti Markets card, they gain access to our rewards program.
What does it cost you?
Almost nothing. You pay for the power and the internet connection. January Service Company picks up the tab for the rest:

What Is a Micro Market?
Micro markets are transforming workplace break rooms and waiting areas throughout the nation. Essentially, they are an unmanned retail space that allows for self-service purchasing of food and beverages similar to the offerings of convenience stores. They operate on an honor system with a checkout kiosk that accepts electronic payments.
How Micro Markets Work
Micro markets offer healthy and tasty food, snacks and drinks. You can have them stocked with fresh foods, including fruit, pre-packaged raw vegetables, salads, sandwiches, cookies and more. They can also be stocked with convenience items, including beef jerky, trail mix, granola bars, chips, pretzels, candy and pastries. Like convenience stores, they can be set up with bottled or canned water, soda, juice and energy drinks.
The customer experience of a micro market is fast, simple and convenient. The customer approaches the bank of vending machines or displays of food and beverages. They choose the snack, food or drink they prefer. At the checkout kiosk, the customer chooses from payment options such as credit or debit cards. The kiosks also accept cash and have fingerprint readers for electronic payments through Apple and Google Pay.
Fast, Fresh, Healthier Options.
If your business has been relying on vending machines to feed employees and clients, it may be time to upgrade to micromarket food service. There are several good reasons to make the switch.

Preserved in controlled temperatures for health and safety considerations, each food item is protected to provide a worry-free snack or meal. All items are available only during the timeframe of their shelf life. Packaging and selections are tamper-resistant to help keep everything ready to eat without concerns.
