Nightfood Adds Distribution in North Carolina and South Carolina Through Merchants Distributors, LLC
Tarrytown, NY, March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, has announced today that it has secured retail distribution in the states of North Carolina and South Carolina.
Distribution company Merchants Distributors, LLC (“MDI”), based in Hickory, North Carolina, will be distributing Nightfood to supermarkets throughout the region. Product was ordered initially to supply one major regional chain with locations throughout the Carolinas. MDI supplies ice cream and other food and non-food items to over 600 retail food stores in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida
“MDI provides distribution to stores throughout the southeast,” commented Jim Christensen, Nightfood’s VP of Ice Cream Sales. “Initial distribution has been secured in a top-50 chain in the Carolinas and product will start hitting shelves in that retailer as early as next week.”
Management is not yet able to announce Nightfood’s newest retail partner, but an announcement is expected in the next two weeks or so. With shelf-presence in the Carolinas, Nightfood distribution will be in 15 states.
“Our plan is to further leverage MDI’s distribution into other chains and independent retailers they service throughout the southeast,” added Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “Every day we hear from consumers across the country that are looking for Nightfood in their local stores. We’re doing everything we can to bring our amazing and in-demand sleep-friendly ice cream to consumers from coast to coast.”
To help grow distribution, Nightfood recently partnered with WeStock.io, an app that gives consumers the power to request local retailers add new products such as Nightfood. As of the date of this release, Nightfood is the most highly requested brand on the WeStock platform. In fact, Nightfood’s eight flavors currently occupy the top eight spots for most product requests.
“This is just one more step we’re taking to stack the deck, to help ensure we get a yes from every retailer on our target list,” added Folkson. “Along with our tremendous media coverage, and a great tasting, better-for-you ice cream, and growing sales figures, we’re making it easier for the buyer to put the brand on shelf.”
