Hotels Wake up to Sleep-Friendly Nighttime Snacks. One Company is Capitalizing on this High-Margin Hotel Opportunity: Nightfood, Inc. (Stock Symbol: NGTF)

Quality sleep is a critical competent in any hotel stay.  Hotels across the country are introducing Nightfood to help guests snack better and sleep better at night.

Nightfood entered national hotel distribution in May, the result of an extensive and successful pilot test with a leading global hospitality company.  Nightfood 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.

Nightfood’s 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.

Nightfood’s sleep-friendly ice cream has launched into hundreds of hotels in more than 40 states across the country.  Significant distribution gains into thousands of additional hotel properties are projected for Nightfood ice cream in the coming months.  NGTF Management believes adding additional snack formats, such as cookies, to hotel distribution will result in greater consumer trial and higher revenues per property.

One global hospitality company has already confirmed they intend to test NGTF cookies in hotels.  Management also expects to be able to leverage hotel ice cream pint sales data to facilitate the cookie rollout in other chains.

Additionally, NGTF management believes significant distribution opportunities exist for Nightfood sleep-friendly cookies as a dessert on overnight international flights.  Talks are ongoing with a major airline catering company that services many of the world’s largest international carriers.
