DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/13 -- Barfresh Food Group Inc. (OTCQB: BRFH), a manufacturer and distributor of unique ready to blend beverages, today announced that it has been approved for roll out to the San Marcos Group, a 25 unit quick service restaurant ("QSR") chain specializing in Mexican food, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan and serving the greater Detroit area. After testing all of the Company's products, San Marcos Group has selected 4 smoothies and 1 frappe to roll out through their entire chain. The products are expected to be shipped this month. The sale was made by Restaurant Link, a sales agent of Barfresh.

Riccardo Delle Coste, Barfresh CEO said, "In addition to our work with the major restaurant chains where we are currently carrying out a number of test-market programs and approvals of flavors, we continue to work with smaller regional chains to introduce all our smoothies, shakes and frappes. I am delighted to announce the addition of San Marcos Group to our growing customer base. We believe that along with our efforts with the major chains, we can significantly grow our business by adding regional chains and independent restaurants to our mix of clients."

The addition of Restaurant Link as part of the Company's sales strategy has already started paying off for Barfresh with a number of new customers about to be added and a rapidly growing pipeline of regional chains and large independent customers at the present time. "We have several restaurant chains coming on board this month, and we look forward to announcing these as we finalize agreements and start to ship products to them," said Mr. Delle Coste.

Barfresh believes it is positioned to capitalize on the growth of the smoothie market -- a market that is estimated by industry analysts to grow dramatically and reach $9 billion by 2015. "With the exception of a few major chains, which introduced smoothies last year, the marketplace is wide open as consumers move away from sugary carbonated beverages to healthier fare," Mr. Delle Coste said. He added: "Furthermore, suppliers of this market are fragmented and we believe our patented system, which is a two-step process, is less costly for restaurant and food service operators and therefore far more attractive to them as they move to implement this business."
