Smoky Market Foods, Inc. Announces the Opening of Its Los Gatos Restaurant; Sets November Launch Date for Internet Sales Campaign

WEBSTER CITY, IA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Smoky Market Foods, Inc. (OTCBB: SMKY) announced today that it has opened its flagship Smoky Market restaurant in Los Gatos, California. "The restaurant showcases our line of Smoky Market brand foods," said Edward Feintech, President & CEO of the company; "It's demonstrating to customers the unique quality and flavor profile of our foods that they can also enjoy at home when they purchase our packaged foods for home consumption," Mr. Feintech continued. The 40-seat, 1,100 s/f fast-casual restaurant concept (with full-service dining, take-out, catering and packaged sales) is innovative with its small kitchen yet provides the revenue capability of a much larger restaurant. "It's the mass production of portion-packaged product that makes our concept work... it's a business model we believe will be easily duplicated in cookie-cutter fashion," Mr. Feintech said. The company also announced that it will commence the launch of its Internet sales campaign in November 2009, which will feature selected items from its menu line for on-line ordering and delivery by FedEx. "Our packaged foods are premium quality and convenient; they're perfect for RV camping, tail-gating, catering and all around in-home enjoyment," Mr. Feintech said.

About Smoky Market Foods

Smoky Market Foods, Inc. is a producer and distributor of a complete line of real Smoke-Baked™ foods that are prepared authentically using a unique wood-burning oven system, and sold under the brand name of Smoky Market. Because of its proprietary wood-burning oven technology, which burns freshly-cut hickory and apple timber to impart a genuine smoky flavor, the company's Smoke-Baked meat and fish are truly prepared the old-fashioned way, without the use of any additives or chemical preservatives. This aspect of quality wholesomeness in prepared food processing is a market niche feature. Smoky Market Foods, Inc. intends to build national brand distribution for its smoked foods through multiple channels of marketing, which includes a chain of Smoky Market® restaurant-stores that do not cook raw food on site, and retail packaged sales from display merchandising and on-line purchasing from the Internet.
