Tarrytown, NY, Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, has announced that over 33,000 consumers across the country have already requested coupons for newly launched Nightfood ice cream by entering the giveaway hosted at NightfoodIceCream.com.
Nightfood was voted 2019 Product of the Year in the ice cream category as chosen by over 40,000 consumers in a study conducted by consumer research giant Kantar. Management is not surprised at the level of consumer interest, and the giveaway is on track to get over 100,000 entrants as previously predicted.
The ice cream is currently available in Meijer supermarket locations in the Midwest, and distribution is about to begin throughout New England and Northern California through relationships with New England Ice Cream and Wonder Ice Cream respectively.
“We’re growing distribution rapidly so everybody will soon have a local store where they can use their coupon,” explained Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “On Facebook and Instagram, consumers are begging us to come to their cities. The rollout process takes time, but I encourage investors to pay careful attention to the enthusiasm from both the consumer base and the media. That’s what I believe will enable us to reach our distribution and revenue goals as we continue our national rollout with coming announcements.”
The majority of the 33,000+ consumers will be receiving a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” coupon, while some others will either receive a coupon for “Buy 1, Get 1 Free” or a coupon for a free pint with no purchase necessary.
Once the distribution and redemption process are tested and confirmed to be running smoothly, the Company will then activate its team of high-profile influencers to start promoting the giveaway.
The coupon program is being run in conjunction with PromotionPod, who has previously run successful campaigns for brands such as Chobani, Halo Top, and BodyArmor.
Leading the national rollout is Jim Christensen, Nightfood’s VP of Ice Cream Sales, who formerly held the same position for global ice cream giant Unilever, where he oversaw brands such as Breyers and Ben & Jerry’s.
Management has a publicly stated goal of securing 10,000 points of distribution for Nightfood ice cream by March 31, 2020. Consumers will be notified as new distribution points begin stocking the ice cream. When Nightfood is available locally, the consumer can then print and use their coupon.
