To Get on the Shelf at Walmart is a Homecooked Shortcuts dream

WICHITA — Landing a spot on a Walmart shelf is a big deal for most manufacturers, which is why Wichitans Steve and Suzy Spatz have entered the chain’s Get on the Shelf competition.

“The Walmart competition is just a very unique opportunity,” Steve Spatz says.

The top winners of the contest, in which almost 4,000 participants have submitted videos of their work, will have their products featured at Walmart.

Spatz and his wife started Homecooked Shortcuts last year to sell the Corn-n-Tater Microwave Cooking Bag.

“It’s a simple, easy-to-use product,” Spatz says.

The bags can be used to cook vegetables such as corn and potatoes in the microwave.

“It makes it taste like it just came out of the oven instead of a microwave,” Spatz says.

Suzy Spatz made the products for years as gifts for family and friends.

“Momentum has just been growing and growing,” Steve Spatz says.

They’ve sold tens of thousands so far. Spatz excepts to sell hundreds of thousands within six months.

The Walmart win would be huge.

After eyeing the competition, Spatz thinks the veggie bag is one of the more practical ideas.
