Barfresh Signs Exclusive Supply Agreement With Shakey's USA to Provide Ready-to-Blend Frozen Beverages to 24 Restaurants in Southern California

Barfresh to Hold Corporate Update Call Today, October 6th at 1:30pm ET

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (OTCQB: BRFH), a manufacturer of frozen, ready-to-blend beverages for quick service and casual restaurants, has expanded its partnership with Shakey's USA to provide Barfresh's line of Smoo® ready-to-blend smoothies to 24 Shakey's restaurant locations in Southern California by signing an exclusive, two-year supply agreement.

"This exclusive agreement builds on the relationship we established with Shakey's last fall, and reflects the healthy demand for our ready-to-blend beverages," said Riccardo Delle Coste, president and CEO of Barfresh. "Shakey's has been enjoying the benefits of our innovative approach for making smoothies, and how it offers a tremendous value proposition for any quick service or casual restaurant owner. We look forward to continued success with Shakey's and expanding our relationship to more of their 50 locations in Southern California."

Barfresh's proprietary Smoo system uses controlled, pre-packaged portions to deliver freshly made, all natural, frozen beverages that are quick, cost efficient and do not require significant equipment or space to produce. Unlike traditional methods, the all-in-one Smoo packs include everything needed to produce a flavorful, fresh smoothie -- even the ice. This results in virtually no waste and allows for simple, low-cost inventory management.

Nick Mayer, President and CEO of Shakey's USA, commented: "We partnered with Barfresh last fall to upgrade our beverage selection with freshly made smoothies that create a premium beverage add-on, as well as a stand-alone snack or dessert. Barfresh's frozen beverages couple good margins with ease of use and efficient supply management. Smoo® smoothies go great with pizza, our guests love them and, most recently, we have seen significant increases in smoothie sales, which help enhance the Shakey's brand and experience."
