What is a heated merchandiser?
A heated merchandiser is a heated holding cabinet with glass profiles and sides. Quality heated merchandisers display food and generate sales while evenly heating food and maintaining a safe temperature. Heated merchandisers can display food as is or in containers (such as an express profit center).
There are a variety of heated merchandisers available. The right display cabinet is the right size for the space with the appropriate shelf capacity and shelves or racks suitable for the food products.

Businesses can select the right heated merchandiser and customize the display by contacting a professional.
