PHOENIX, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Inventure Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAK), a
leading specialty food marketer and manufacturer, today announced that its
President and CEO, Terry McDaniel, has been honored with an Ernst & Young
Entrepreneur Of The Year^® Award in the Mountain Desert region. McDaniel
received the top honor in the turnaround category.

The Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizes outstanding
high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success
in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to
their businesses and communities. The finalists and winners were selected by
an independent panel of judges and honored at a gala event at the Denver
Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

McDaniel has served as President and CEO of Inventure Foods since 2008 and has
played a pivotal role in creating an atmosphere of product innovation and
strategic execution. Under his leadership, the Company has established a
diverse portfolio of better-for-you and indulgent foods, making Inventure the
licensing partner of choice within the specialty food category. Inventure now
has licensing agreements with several leading brands, including Nathan's
Famous®, Jamba® Juice and Seattle's Best Coffee™. McDaniel's efforts in the
first few years of his leadership have positioned the Company well to focus on
high growth business ventures, proactively engage Wall Street and further
expand distribution channels. As a result of McDaniel's entrepreneurial
leadership style, Inventure Foods continues to seek out new ventures that
align with consumer preferences and enhance the Company's innovative platform.
2012 marked a successful year for the Company primarily due to the investments
made in prior years and the strategic foresight by McDaniel. Inventure Foods
achieved record financial and operational results, which will allow the
Company to seek new ventures, enhance their innovative platform and grow their
Healthy/Natural portfolio for years to come.

"I am honored to have received this award from Ernst and Young, but it really
would not have been possible without the support and hard work of the entire
Inventure Foods team that I am privileged to lead and work alongside," said
McDaniel. "The stability and growth that has occurred at Inventure is the
direct result of a clear focus on our vision and a great team effort to
execute our plan."

As a regional award winner, McDaniel will now go on to compete at the national
level. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the National
Entrepreneur Of The Year Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual
awards gala in Palm Springs, California on November 16, 2013. The awards are
