Tarrytown, NY, March 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the sleep-friendly nighttime snack company addressing America’s $50 billion nighttime snacking problem, announced yesterday on a previously-scheduled investor update call that it has received an updated timeline regarding its anticipated launch into national hotel distribution.
The hotel chain which tested Nightfood in their hotel lobby shops in 2021 is expected to be the first to introduce Nightfood into national distribution. This chain has over 500 American locations and is part of a global hotel brand that has several thousand properties in the United States.
The Company received confirmation on Friday, February 25, 2022 that initial purchase orders for the national hotel launch of Nightfood ice cream pints will be placed this month, and could come as early as this week or next. In light of the fact that launch timelines previously presented to the Company have been pushed back multiple times in recent quarters, Management notes that additional delays remain possible.
Due to signed confidentiality agreements, Management is not at liberty at this time to disclose the identity of the first chain planning to launch Nightfood, or of the international hospitality company group purchasing (“GPO”) organization with which the Company recently entered into an agreement which went into effect yesterday, March 1, 2022.
“We’re thrilled to have a signed agreement with our new GPO partner as Nightfood prepares to roll into our first national hotel distribution,” commented Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “They service thousands of hotels across the country, representing virtually all the major brands and banners. With their support, influence, and insights, our hope is that Nightfood sleep-friendly snacks will soon become a fixture in hotel lobby shops from coast to coast.”
The two Nightfood flavors expected to be available soon in hotel lobby shops are Cookies n’ Dreams and Midnight Chocolate. Should purchase orders be received by the Company on the current timeline, it is expected Nightfood ice cream pints would begin appearing in in hotel freezers in April, 2022.
Nightfood is pioneering the nighttime snack category.
Over 80% of Americans snack regularly at night, resulting in an estimated 700 million nighttime snack occasions weekly, and an annual spend on night snacks of over $50 billion. The most popular choices are ice cream, cookies, chips, and candy. Recent research confirms such snacks, in addition to being generally unhealthy, can impair sleep, partly due to excess fat and sugar consumed before bed.
Nightfood’s sleep-friendly snacks are formulated by sleep and nutrition experts to contain less of those sleep-disruptive ingredients, along with a focus on ingredients and nutrients that research suggests can support nighttime relaxation and better sleep quality.
