Nightfood Ice Cream Scores Two Major National Media Hits: CEO Interviewed on Yahoo Finance PM, and a Feature on Today.com
Tarrytown, NY, March 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, continues to capture the attention of the market with two major national media outlets featuring Nightfood ice cream yesterday, March 20, 2019.
Today.com, the website of The Today Show, published this extensive feature on Nightfood in their Food Trends section. The article features a subheadline that reads “Move over, Halo Top”, referring to the Halo Top ice cream brand which successfully went from launch to national distribution and a market cap of approximately $2 Billion in just a few years.
The author reported that many of the Nightfood flavors were delicious, and mentioned that she found Nightfood’s Bed and Breakfast flavor (maple ice cream with waffle chunks) to be “pretty addictive”.
On the set of Yahoo Finance PM, CEO Sean Folkson and hosts Zack Guzman, Melody Hahm, and Kerry Flynn enjoyed Nightfood’s Milk & Cookie Dough flavor while discussing the multi-billion dollar “sleep-friendly nutrition” category Nightfood is pioneering with its team of sleep and nutrition experts.
“This outsized media exposure represents so much more than just increased consumer awareness,” stated Folkson. “Looking deeper, I take this as iron-clad confirmation that what we have is resonating powerfully with real people, real consumers. Has the market ever seen a new ice cream get this kind of attention within the first few weeks of launching? We believe it’s truly unprecedented.”
In June, 2018, Nightfood brought on Jim Christensen, former Unilever VP of Ice Cream Sales, to spearhead the national rollout. Christensen spent over 20 years at Unilever heading up sales and distribution initiatives for such brands as Ben & Jerry’s, Klondike, Breyers and Good Humor.
Since Nightfood’s initial production run in January, the brand has secured distribution in sixteen states and is targeting 10,000 points of retail distribution by March 31, 2020.
