Over the past several months, we’ve taken a deep dive into several Coronavirus (COVID-19) topics on our blog. The range of topics deal with the impact on the food service industry & current IMC products that help fight against the virus. Today, we are capping off this journey by unveiling a unique new product to promote safety & social distancing in your facility: the ICM-36 Mobile Grab & Go Station.
So, what is it & what are the major benefits for you? Let’s explore below.
What is ICM-36?
ICM-36 is a unique all-in-one solution for storing, merchandising & marketing your nutritious snacks & drink items. The product features two main components: an insulated ice bin & a mounted merchandising shelf. Both of these elements come together to form a mobile grab & go solution that can fit into almost any application.
Let’s talk about each of the components briefly below:
- Constructed of 14GA type 300 series stainless steel
- Features a perforated false bottom & 1″ drain
- The ice bin is integral with the cabinet body – which offers an extra, lockable storage compartment & a flip-up utility shelf. The cabinet body also features (2) hinged doors & casters for maximum mobility.
- Constructed of 18GA type 300 series stainless steel
- 15″ height is ideal for holding many of your snacks such as fruits, vegetables & cereals
- 2″ turn up at the front prevents items from sliding off the shelf
Here’s a detailed look at ICM-36’s major features below:

Convenience & Safety Drive the ICM-36
Currently, many schools are seeing limited cafeteria & meal service due to the ongoing pandemic. Schools are coming up with plans to keep food & drinks separated among students & staff. The ICM-36 shines in these situations due to the mobile design of the product. For example, ICM-36 can be positioned safely in a classroom & then quickly moved into another classroom. This is because the product is designed for quick set up – just lock in the brakes & that’s it.
ICM-36 is not just for schools – many hotels have snack bar or continental breakfast areas, which are very scarce now due to the pandemic. ICM-36 can be strategically positioned around the hotel to encourage guests to pick up snack or drink items, offering an essential grab & go option. ICM-36 isn’t just for breakfast items though; it can be used for virtually any serving application!
As far as restaurants, many buffets & catering operations are seeing huge overhauls during the new normal. These establishments can see a huge benefit in ICM-36. Having multiple ICM-36’s set up inside & outside of the restaurant is just one way of promoting social distancing.
No matter what business you are in, the extra storage compartment in the cabinet body is great for storing your extra items & keeping them secure. Finally, the durable stainless steel construction beats out comparable plastic grab & go carts, which do not stand up to the high volume seen in busier locations.
With ICM-36, we’ve looked at all the businesses most affected by COVID-19 & looked to offer a solution that is both simple to use & safe for everyone. At IMC/Teddy, we continue to manufacture products to help you maintain facility safety & hygiene. With the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to be your teammate in fighting back against the virus as much as possible. For a closer look at ICM-36, click here.
