BENTONVILLE, Ark., March 26, 2019 – If you’ve ever dreamed of potentially reaching thousands of customers with your U.S.-manufactured products, now is the time to act: Walmart is accepting applications for its 6th annual Open Call, scheduled for June 18 and 19 at the company’s Home Office campus in Bentonville, Arkansas. Apply today by visiting Walmart-jump.com for the opportunity to secure a face-to-face pitch meeting with a Walmart buyer. The application deadline is April 30.
“Our participation in the Open Call opportunity has had an amazing impact on our business,” said Justin Mark, JustinTimeSnacks. JustinTimeSnacks recently launched its Homeplate Pizza on store shelves in Missouri, just in time for baseball season. “The Walmart deal we secured has led to expansion for increased production that allows us to now own a 5,000 square-foot manufacturing facility. Additionally, all of our ingredients and even the packaging is sourced through local businesses creating jobs across the St. Louis area.”
This year’s Open Call attendees could secure deals ranging from a handful of stores in local markets, to supplying hundreds, even thousands of stores, Sam’s Clubs and Walmart.com. The two-day event informs, empowers and encourages attendees while providing effective networking opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
