Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF) entered national hotel distribution in May, the result of an extensive and successful pilot test with a leading global hospitality company. NGTF has since secured distribution in select locations of many of the largest hotel chains in the world, including Marriott, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Hyatt House, Hyatt Place, Crowne Plaza, Best Western, Fairfield Inn, Candlewood Suites, Ramada, La Quinta by Wyndham, SpringHill Suites, Sonesta, Clarion, and many more.
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.
NGTF 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.
With an estimated 56,000 hotels across the United States, national distribution in the high-margin hotel vertical is expected to lead to profitability, consumer adoption of the sleep-friendly nighttime snack category, and a strategically defensible position from which category leadership can be maintained.

NGTF Continues to Capture Strong Share of Hotel Location Ice Cream Pint Sales
On November 2nd NGTF announced that independent sales data for September and October across a subsection of qualifying hotel lobby marketplaces show that Nightfood ice cream pints are capturing a significant percentage of hotel ice cream pint sales from industry-leading Haagen Dazs.
The reporting subset represents all 30 hotels across the country which only sold 2 brands of pint ice cream (Nightfood and Haagen Dazs) during the two-month period and for which point-of-sale purchase data is available. Hotels that only sold Nightfood pints were excluded from the analysis, as were hotels that sold more than two brands of pints.
NGTF ice cream, which began appearing nationally in hotel freezers less than six months ago, captured over 39% of total ice cream pint unit sales against the iconic Haagen Dazs which launched in 1960. In 33% of those hotels, NGTF outsold Haagen Dazs, head-to-head.
NGTF which recently added sleep-friendly cookies to its product line believes any hotel selling snacks has an obligation to make sleep-friendly snacks available for their guests. There are 56,000 hotels in the U.S., and the company believes Nightfood should be in every one of them. NGTF is sharing this independent sales data with hotel decision-makers as we work to secure additional distribution commitments and timelines with some of the largest brands in the hotel industry.
