In addition, the Company increased its domestic U.S. Armed Forces Dining Facility locations to 169 from 150 locations at end of second quarter, 2019.
Barfresh is well positioned to continue international and domestic expansion beyond the current 195 dining facilities which include today’s newly announced locations.

The Company expects these new 45 locations announced today will be pouring product within 60-90 days.
There are multiple facilities at each military base location creating many expansion opportunities at current and new bases. The Company is actively pursuing engagement with all U.S. military facilities and expects to gain greater penetration throughout the remainder of 2019 across the United States’ 800 bases, which serve 1.3 million active troops.
Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company's CEO stated, "The international expansion with the U.S. Military is a testament to our great product offerings but also our operational capabilities enabling us to serve clients all over the world with our patented product offerings. We now have approval for 195 locations compared to 100 military locations at the beginning of 2019 and are very well positioned for additional expansion for many years to come.”
