Nightfood Ice Cream Engages Independent Natural Food Brokers to Expand Distribution West of Mississippi, Securing Additional New Supermarket Chains

Tarrytown, NY, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the start-up ice cream company addressing America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, has engaged Independent Natural Food Brokers (INFB) to represent the Nightfood line to retail accounts throughout the western half of the United States.

Headquartered in Colorado, and led by respected industry veteran Brenda Steele, INFB calls on key accounts such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, HEB, Lucky’s Rouse’s, and many divisions of Albertsons/Safeway. These chains, in addition to hundreds of smaller chains and independent retailers, make up their base of business throughout the Rocky Mountain Region, the Southwest and California, the Pacific Northwest, as well as Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and the upper Midwest.

“We engaged Brenda and her team just a couple of weeks ago.  They’ve already presented Nightfood to two significant chains, and we’ve been told that both reported they will be adding Nightfood in their early 2020 resets,” commented Sean Folkson, Nightfood CEO.  “The team has many more meetings scheduled, and we’re expecting them to help us land additional key accounts, as well as growing Nightfood through independent channels.” 

“Nightfood sleep-friendly ice cream is a unique and powerful concept that has cut through the clutter with retail buyers,” remarked Brenda Steele, founder of INFB.  “The feedback we’re getting is very positive.  We’ve been up against dozens of other brands, vying for limited freezer space…getting those buyer commitments is not easy, but we’ve done it with Nightfood, and we see an exciting future.” 

“With INFB on board, our sales efforts are multiplied,” added Folkson.  “It’s a big country to cover.  In addition to all the major chains they call on, they also have the ability to get deep into geographic markets and accounts that wouldn’t be on our radar at this time. A good broker does much more than just sell.  Once we’re in, they will facilitate promotional program strategy, implementation, execution and compliance, helping to ensure success at all retail outlets.”

Other INFB brands include Nada Moo, Happy Leaf Kombucha, Sunshine Burger, and Qrunch Foods.  Interested parties can learn more on the INFB website.
