Nightfood Ice Cream Added in Thirteen Additional Meijer Supermarket Locations in Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois
TARRYTOWN, NY, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, announced today that the Meijer supermarket chain has added Nightfood ice cream to thirteen additional store locations.
The additional stores include four new Meijer Supercenters which are scheduled to open in May as well as nine existing Meijer stores.
“We’re very excited that Meijer, after really just a few weeks of sales data, decided to put Nightfood in over a dozen additional locations,” commented Nightfood VP of Ice Cream Sales, Jim Christensen. “We were pleased with the initial sales reports we received, and the consumer feedback has been nothing short of phenomenal. We have some exciting promotions planned as summer approaches, which we’ll announce shortly.”
The four new Meijer Supercenter locations are Fremont, MI; Avon, OH; Mentor, OH; and Stow, OH. The three Ohio stores give both Meijer and Nightfood their initial presence in the Cleveland market.
The nine existing Meijer locations that have added Nightfood are East Lansing, MI; Northville, MI; Midland, MI; St. Charles, IL; Battle Creek, MI; Portage, MI; Greenville, MI; Alma, MI and Grand Rapids, MI.
Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson announced last week in an interview that another top-50 supermarket chain has added Nightfood in freezers in a handful of their locations. No public announcement has been made as Management is not yet certain how many locations will be carrying the brand. This is a billion-dollar regional chain in the Midwest with approximately 20 high-volume stores, whose average store revenue is roughly three times the average Kroger, and twice as much as the average Whole Foods.
“Every additional point of distribution is a step towards our goal of 10,000 locations secured by March 31, 2020,” added Folkson. “In addition, we are putting the finishing touches a new distribution deal that should have Nightfood in many of the largest markets in the country before summer.”
