Self Checkout Kiosks

When hunger calls, our micro market vending solutions are at your service. Designed for any space, our micro markets offer five convenient payment options for a seamless self-checkout experience. Choose from touchscreen kiosks, space-saving tablets, Pico devices, mobile smartphones, or the Canteen Connect & Pay app, which allows access to multiple food service areas within a connected campus.

Security is our priority. Our micro market payment and checkout hardware and software are PCI Certified, featuring end-to-end (E2E) encryption to protect employees and guests' personal and payment information.

Remotely Monitored Coolers

Five Star puts safety first! While not required (yet) by federal or local agencies, we believe in ensuring our fresh food stays that way!

Each of our coolers and freezers is equipped with remote temperature monitoring and lock-out technology to ensure the quality and safety of our refrigerated fresh food and frozen food. If the temperature rises above the food safety standards set by FDA and USDA, the coolers are automatically locked to prevent the food from being reached or sold, and an alert is sent to our local team so they can address the issue.

These key safeguards complete the food safety cycle following the rigorous production and storage processes and procedures we follow to remain HACCP certified.

Personalized 3D Renderings

Perhaps you have a great space, but it lacks food and personality and is rarely used by your associates. What a waste. Or maybe your breakroom needs a facelift, something more welcoming for your employees? That’s where we come in to help!

Whether we upgrade your space into a micro-market or customize the right solution for your needs, we can create a great office environment and space for your team. From linear setups and L-shaped designs to layouts spanning multiple walls – we stand out from the rest by using permanent, high-quality fixtures.

Our in-house designers and breakroom consultants will work with you to create an engaging breakroom space for your employees to enjoy – offering their favorite snacks, coffee, and a space for great conversations.
