ifse for Micro-Markets

Bolster your food and beverage offer and expand your customer base with ifse’s new innovative modular micro market shop.

A modern twist on the traditional vending solution, our micro market design for versatile social breakout spaces are fully customisable to instantly provide variety for your customers.

Introducing a branded micro market can accommodate modern and flexible employee schedules beyond the traditional ‘lunch rush’.

Our micro-market concept ensures your catering offer is versatile, as more businesses switch to staggered and flexible working.


From the very beginning, we work closely with you, your team, and your guests to understand the available space and your requirements through customer/client interviews, workshops, and observations of the existing setup.


Combine the concept with a truly unique brand visual identity that will create a destination for your customers. Our in-house branding team are involved from the initial discussions to ensure we capture the right vibe.

Space Planning

Using the latest trends, materials and fittings, our design team will find creative and innovative ways to utilize the space available, whilst taking a practical and workable view of your environment.


After the build process, your restaurant is now ready to become a destination for your colleagues, clients and guests. We work with you throughout the launch period and afterwards with support and maintenance to ensure the longevity of finishes and equipment.


With our fully immersive photoreal 3D technology, we bring your restaurant space to life allowing you to understand how the micro-market design will look and feel.

This includes our industry-leading animated video walkthrough technology that utilizes VR technology to place you into the environment in real-time.
