Tarrytown, NY, May 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the innovative ice cream company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, announced today that distribution of Nightfood nighttime ice cream began recently in Woodman’s Markets stores in Wisconsin and Illinois.
Woodman’s joins the Meijer chain in the midwest and Lowes Foods in the Carolinas as the third Progressive Grocer magazine Top-50 US supermarket chain to carry Nightfood.
Woodman’s, founded in 1919 and celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, operates 17 ultra-high volume stores and has an eighteenth scheduled to open in the fall. According to Progressive Grocer magazine, “the voice of the retail food industry since 1922”, each Woodman’s location averages 2-3 times the revenue of most of the other chains on their top-50 list.
“We’re thrilled to have Nightfood available at Woodman’s,” commented Sean Folkson, Nightfood CEO. “This is a legendary chain that sees a ton of foot-traffic, and we think it’s just a perfect fit. Most of the other major chains have a more structured review and reset calendar, which means a longer process to get on shelf. We’re in four Woodman’s locations to date, one was added last week, and we expect more to be added as the days go by.”
Management decided to make this announcement at this time because a consumer had recently posted pictures of Nightfood in Woodman’s freezers on Facebook. There was speculation among investors as to which new chain had added the product and the Company wanted to be sure all investors had access to the same information.
In addition to the Woodman’s announcement, the Company has scheduled an investor conference call for Tuesday, May 28, 2019, at 4:30 PM eastern.
Investors and other interested parties are invited to submit questions for the Company by E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered for the call, questions must be received by 12PM eastern on Friday, May 24, 2019.
