Congratulations to the management and staff of Winky & Dutch Inc. of Port Byron. Two years after bringing the business to Cayuga County, CEO Alice Globus traveled to Bentonville, Arkansas last month to take part in Walmart’s 5th Annual Open Call to pitch the company’s unique sew-on buttons.
Globus told the Citizen it was like speed dating for businesses. About 100 of the 450 enterpreneurs invited made it to the second round and displayed their products for Walmart’s buyers, who selected Winky & Dutch on the spot.
The company’s high-tech buttons will soon be a “craft good item” in Walmart’s sewing sections.
