NightFood (NGTF) Ice Cream Launch Update: Kicking Off Brand Ambassador Program With NFL Pro-Bowl Tight End Tyler Eifert
Tarrytown, NY , Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightFood, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), the company pioneering the projected multi-billion dollar nighttime snacking category, is pleased to announce that Tyler Eifert, of the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, has joined the NightFood team as a brand ambassador.
Eifert, a 27 year-old tight end who was an All-American while playing college football at the University of Notre Dame, earned NFL Pro-Bowl honors in 2016.
“Tyler boasts a great sense of humor, over 150,000 social media followers, and junk cravings almost nightly,” commented Adam Elbendary of Ready Set Studios, NightFood’s ambassador program manager. “We think he’s going to be a perfect fit, and we love his enthusiasm for the brand.”
“When I first learned about NightFood, I just thought the idea was absolute genius,” Eifert added. “This is something a lot of guys in the league can really relate to. I look forward to sharing NightFood with the public, and with my teammates.”
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to share in the upside with an up-and-coming brand that’s obviously on an amazing path,” added Brent Beck, Eifert’s marketing agent who arranged the relationship. “It’s so easy to imagine NightFood just blowing up, with over two hundred million Americans snacking at night and everybody wanting better sleep.”
In one of the most often-cited transactions of a similar nature, it is estimated that David Wright made up to $20 million when VitaminWater was acquired by Coke for over $4 billion in 2007. Wright had taken a very small equity piece of the young company to be a spokesperson and brand ambassador.
“We’re thrilled to have Tyler on board,” exclaimed NightFood CEO Sean Folkson. “As we build an all-star team of ambassadors in advance of the ice cream launch, we’re being contacted daily by social media stars and big-name athletes, including Olympic gold medal winners, NASCAR drivers, golfing legends, and more. Even a former NBA MVP. The buzz around NightFood is just electric right now, and everybody seems to sense this category is coming hard.”
NightFood has eight flavors of sleep-friendly ice cream currently under development. Production is expected in Q4, with product available for sale online immediately thereafter, and rolling into supermarket distribution during Q1 of 2019.
