Nightfood Partners with IceCreamSource.com for Online Ice Cream Sales Plus Distribution to Hotels & College Campuses
Tarrytown, NY, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), the company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, has announced that consumers and investors can now buy Nightfood ice cream online through its partnership with IceCreamSource.com
As Nightfood launches its national roll-out into mainstream retail, starting in February, having the ice cream available online is also important to allow consumers and investors to access the product before it is available in their area.
“Nightfood is a mass-market retail brand, 100% focused on national retail distribution,” explained CEO Sean Folkson. “This relationship with the pros IceCreamSource.com will allow us to stay focused on building a breakthrough consumer brand at retail. At the same time, we can establish an online presence without getting bogged down in the complexities of mail-order ice cream.”
IceCreamSource parent company, e-tailer, inc., is the online retail arm for brands such as Ben & Jerry’s, Halo Top, and more. They will act as the merchant and fulfillment arm for all Nightfood ice cream orders on BuyNightfood.com and Amazon, and will soon have Nightfood available on IceCreamSource.com as well.
“The ice cream brands that have the greatest success online are the ones that are most unique and irreplaceable to the consumer,” commented Brad Massey, VP of Sales & Marketing for e-tailer. “We’ve seen Nightfood get media attention before product has even appeared on shelves. That’s a strong indication that both consumer and media interest will be high.”
In addition, e-tailer supplies ice cream to over 3,000 hotels across the country, including Marriott, Wyndham, and Hilton locations. They also supply ice cream to bookstores on hundreds of college campuses through their partnership with IndiCo.
“We’re very excited about distribution in hotel lobby shops, where ice cream has become a staple for road-weary travelers,” offered Jim Christensen, Nightfood VP of Ice Cream Sales. “Hotels are also a great way to pollinate awareness. Nightfood is a much better fit in both hotels and college campuses than the higher fat, higher sugar, and higher calorie legacy brands. We will work with e-tailer to develop these channels in coming months.”
Consumers and investors wishing to try Nightfood can now order the ice cream from e-tailer at http://BuyNightfood.com at a cost of $5.99 per pint and $19 flat-rate shipping with a minimum 8 pint order.
