“We’re grateful for the opportunity to introduce Nightfood to NABHOOD’s illustrious members and attendees,” commented Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “As we continue to expand our ice cream pint distribution in hotels nationally, we’ve chosen to introduce Nightfood cookies at this event due to the logistical advantages and to jumpstart our upcoming cookie launch.”
“Hotels have a responsibility to do what they can to facilitate quality sleep for their guests,” remarked Dr. Ingraham. “As a nighttime snacker myself, I believe sleep-friendly nighttime snacking supports that obligation in a creative and important way.”

Nightfood is pioneering the category of sleep-friendly nighttime snacking.
Over 80% of Americans snack regularly at night, resulting in an estimated 700 million nighttime snack occasions weekly, and an annual spend on night snacks of over $50 billion. The most popular choices are ice cream, cookies, chips, and candy. Recent research confirms such snacks, in addition to being generally unhealthy, can impair sleep, partly due to excess fat and sugar consumed before bed.
Nightfood’s sleep-friendly snacks are formulated by sleep and nutrition experts to contain less of those sleep-disruptive ingredients, along with a focus on ingredients and nutrients that research suggests can support nighttime relaxation and better sleep quality.
The brand is currently focused on establishing widespread national distribution of its sleep-friendly snacks in the high-margin hotel vertical. Nightfood began rolling into hotels across the United States in May 2022. Management believes hotels have an obligation to help guests achieve better sleep, and one way to do that is through the snacks hotels curate for sale in their grab-and-go lobby shops.
With an estimated 56,000 hotels across the United States, national distribution is expected to lead to profitability, consumer adoption of the nighttime snack category, and a strategically defensible position from which category leadership can be maintained.
