A micromarket is an unattended vending concept variously described as:
- an unattended, self-checkout food facility located inside of an enclosed building and available to a known group of employees at their work location. Employees can access prepackaged food directly and then pay for their selection at a kiosk.
- a self-checkout retail food establishment that replaces a bank of vending machines.
- use 360 degree, onsite cameras to prevent theft 
In 2006, Sterling Services installed one of the original self-checkout market systems for corporate environments in Detroit, Michigan. These labor-saving, unmanned always open convenience stores offered workplaces fresh food and snacks 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
In 2017, Sterling Services integrated the first self-order system into a hybrid micromarket self-checkout POS system allowing customers to customize food orders and pay from mobile, internet, in-person cashier and self-service kiosks.
Today, micromarkets are a $1 billion business and you’ll find nearly 18,000 micromarkets in corporate, educational and healthcare settings around the world.
