TARRYTOWN, NY, Nov. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the award-winning ice cream company addressing America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, yesterday received confirmation that sleep-friendly Nightfood ice cream will soon be made available in a large division of one of the nation’s top-10 supermarket chains.
The rapidly expanding brand manufactured its first pint of ice cream in January of this year and is currently on-shelf in four of the top 50 supermarket chains in the United States.
“This is a busy time of year, with a heavy concentration of sales meetings for me, Jim, and our team of brokers,” commented Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “To continue to land major accounts with such a young brand and short sales history is not easy to do. While some chains have informed us they’ll be waiting until their next review period, we also expect additional major chains, like this one, to formally confirm they’ll be adding the line shortly.”
The new chain will be taking on seven flavors of Nightfood, including Full Moon Vanilla, Midnight Chocolate, Cherry Eclipse (cherry ice cream with chocolate chips and cherry pieces), Milk & Cookie Dough, After Dinner Mint Chip, Cookies n’ Dreams, and Bed and Breakfast (maple ice cream with waffle pieces).
Management attributes its ability to establish broad distribution in major chains so early in the life-cycle of the product line to Nightfood’s unique consumer value proposition. With sleep-friendly recipes specifically addressing the nighttime snack occasion, which is when most at-home ice cream consumption occurs, Nightfood offers millions of nighttime snackers something they cannot find in any other brand.
“Just being delicious isn’t enough these days,” added Folkson. “Neither is just being different. You need to be different, but in a way that actually matters to the consumer. We know sleep moves the needle for people. Then, the category manager needs to believe in the sales velocity of the line, and the vision shared with them of the major catalysts and specific marketing strategies we’ll be implementing to make 2020 an explosive year for the brand.”
