Nightfood sleep-friendly ice cream in hotel freezers can deliver better-for-you snacking benefits to road-weary travelers
Tarrytown, NY, Jan. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the award-winning ice cream company addressing America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, announced today the Company will be exhibiting at the 44th Annual Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Supply Show of the Southeast on January 28-30th.
Nightfood’s line of sleep-friendly ice cream, which management believes is a natural fit in hotel lobby store freezers, is already selling well in locations of chains such as Fairfield Inn & Suites (Marriott), Hilton Garden Inn (Hilton), Staybridge Suites (InterContinental Hotels Group), and Residence Inn (Marriott).
“Each and every hotel selling ice cream should be making Nightfood sleep-friendly ice cream available for their guests,” stated Nightfood’s Lionel Binnie. “Through our valuable distribution relationships, Nightfood is available to hotel operators throughout many sections of the country, including most of the southeast. Combining that with our strong regional retail presence in Lowes Foods and Harris Teeter gives me great confidence this show will be a success.”
Mr. Binnie, recently engaged by Nightfood to develop the hotel vertical for the brand, is currently engaged in ongoing discussions with some of the largest hotel brands in the country, as well as many large hotel management companies.
“Now that the holidays are behind us, Lionel and I can continue to push these discussions forward,” added Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “In addition to our upcoming supermarket updates, we’re expecting great developments on the hotel front.”
Now in its 44th year, the 2020 Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Supply Show of the Southeast will once again be attended by buyers representing thousands of hotel properties across the southeast looking for new and innovative ways to improve their guest experience.
Folkson continued, “Hotels represent a very exciting vertical for us, and one that Nightfood is uniquely positioned for. It’s amazing how much ice cream is sold in that environment. Just ask at the front desk when you travel, especially in the mid-range and business properties. The emergence of more complete lobby stores is a growing source of incremental revenue and customer satisfaction, and my goal is to get Nightfood in every single one of those freezers.”
