Nightfood Ice Cream Expanding Distribution to Sixteen States; Second Production Run This Week, Initial Feedback is Strong
Tarrytown, NY, March 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, has announced that the second production run of Nightfood ice cream will begin this week, and is scheduled to be completed the week of March 18.
As previously announced on February 1, before the national roll-out had begun, Management decided to initiate this second production run shortly after the initial run of over 100,000 pints. Reasons given were newly secured distribution deals combined with the positive consumer feedback and reviews from individuals and media that have tried the product.
“We now have customers sending us pictures of sold out flavors in stores,” commented Jim Christensen, Nightfood VP of Ice Cream Sales and former long-time Unilever ice cream executive. “The sales data to this point is very preliminary, but the numbers we’ve received have definitely exceeded my expectations.”
Nightfood won the 2019 Product of the Year Award in the ice cream category, in a Kantar survey of over 40,000 consumers, beating out the other finalists with its unique innovation and value proposition. The Nightfood brand has recently been featured in major media outlets such as USA Today, MarketWatch, The Washington Post, Fox Business, and more.
“Incredible interest from the media and from consumers shows we’ve struck a nerve… the reviews and feedback on the product itself tell me this is going to be a home run,” added Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “Now that we’ve confirmed strong product-market fit, all that’s left to do is execute the national roll-out. When I left the R&D lab back in September, I knew we had created something very special.”
This second production run is expected to deliver over 120,000 pints of Nightfood, providing additional inventory for new distribution deals that have been confirmed, but not yet announced publicly. With these new commitments, the ice cream will soon be available at retail in sixteen states across the country. Management has established a target of securing distribution in 10,000 retail outlets by March 31, 2020.
