Blake Hermel says micro markets have been a big help.

Micro markets have proven a game changer for A.H. Hermel Vending in Mankato, Minn., a Canteen franchise with 25 vending routes. The fourth-generation company, which also has an extensive foodservice distribution arm, found micro markets a revenue booster when the core vending business faced a decline in recent years.

The company began looking at micro markets when the kiosks first came on the scene 10 years ago.

"The technology just wasn't there yet as far as scanners and systems to manage inventory," said Blake Hermel, president.

A.H. Hermel Vending combines its micro market and vending deliveries.

But over time, the systems improved. The company installed 
its first micro market five years ago, and to day it has 50 micro markets. "The technology was there; it was 
re ady, and our customers really liked it," Hermel said.

The company's managers assessed the pros and cons of the different systems, ultimately selecting the 365 Retail Markets system.

"They've taken care of us; we've had a good relationship with them," Hermel said.
