Cono Italiano's Pizza Cone Craze Hits Monmouth University

RED BANK, NJ--(Marketwire - September 7, 2010) -  Cono Italiano, Inc. (OTCBB: CNOZ), the exclusive license holder for the North American Distribution and Manufacturing rights of "pizza cono," a one-of-a-kind, cone shaped pizza made of proprietary dough, recently introduced the pizza cone craze to the students at Monmouth University.

Per an invitation from ARAMARK Food Services at Monmouth University, Cono Italiano participated in the university's popular vendor day, designed to welcome back students and allow them to sample new foods and products. After Cono Italiano's delicious and drip-free pizza cones and cones filled with meatballs made the rounds, students, faculty and participating vendors all arrived at the same conclusion: The pizza cone is one of the most exciting and tasty products they have experienced in recent years.

As a result of the pizza cone craze spreading across the campus of Monmouth University, management and staff have received numerous requests from students to ensure the pizza cone is readily available in a variety of mouth-watering flavors. "Other than pizza, everyone loved the egg and cheese breakfast cone and the taco cone," said Eric Savoie, Food Service Director, ARAMARK. "Thanks to the versatility of the cone, it goes without saying that the combinations are endless: Gyro cones, Philly cheese steak, and pulled pork -- our signature dish -- will definitely become regular campus favorites as well."

Monmouth University and ARAMARK both look forward to partnering with Cono Italiano, Inc. and sharing in the company's long-term success.
