Kum & Go announced the deployment of automated floor-cleaning robots by partnering with ICE Cobotics. The retailer will deploy the manufacturer’s Cobi 18 model across its over 400 locations.

By integrating the autonomous equipment the brand will help free up associates from repetitive work and allows them to focus on keeping shelves and coolers fully stocked, delivering fresh food offerings, and increasing engagement with in-store customers. 

Cobi 18 is designed for small spaces and easily navigates tight aisles and around moving and stationary objects. It can be easily deployed multiple times per day to clean floors, ensuring customers experience a clean environment every time they walk through the door.

“Kum & Go’s continuous improvement culture drives us to find equipment and process improvements that make it easier for our store associates to execute. The choice was easy given the full support model ICE Cobotics provides. We are excited to participate in the development of the Cobi 18 to support stores during times of staffing challenges,” said Marty Roush, Vice President of Operations at Kum & Go.

Kum & Go takes pride in their clean stores and ICE Cobotics is committed to healthier environments through autonomous cleaning solutions. Together, the partnership takes cleaning to a whole new level.
