Bissell, a floor care products manufacturer headquartered in Walker (outside of Grand Rapids), has partnered with Grand Haven-based food designer HotLogic to launch a portable and heated meal tote bag.
Touted by HotLogic as a “breaktime breakthrough,” HotLogic mini totes allow consumers to warm their food without leaving their workstations, standing in line in the breakroom, or pushing buttons on a microwave. The portable device works in other places, as well.
“With HotLogic mini totes, associates can bring meals from home directly to their desks. This allows them to bypass the fridge and microwave and plug their totes into their workstations so their food is ready to eat when and where they are,” says Sean Regan, vice president of cleaning systems and COVID response team member at Bissell.
HotLogic products with SmartShelf heating technology are available in personal totes and breakroom appliances. The no-touch and low-touch solutions give employees a way to “heat healthier” in the new, post-COVID-19 work environment.
“We want to give companies a meaningfully way to welcome back their employees,” says Bill McKendry, chief marketing officer for HotLogic. “Employers are looking for a solution to the new world breakroom and providing healthy meals for their workforce. HotLogic not only provides options to enjoy fresh, reheated, or frozen meals faster, easier, and safer, but is prepared and heated by you, removing stress and fear.”
HotLogic products are energy efficient and not fire hazardous. They work with glass, plastic, paperboard, and metal foil containers.
Bissell is joining the list of HotLogic’s partners, which includes companies such as Google, Walmart, Intel, Ford Motor Co., Gordon Food Service, and Herman Miller.
HotLogic is offering limited time post-COVID-19 pricing. Their mini totes and breakroom appliances are marked down through Aug. 1. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a nonprofit organization.
