SPARTA — With Walmart’s commitment to increase its investment to $250 billion in American made products by 2023, 450 U.S. suppliers were invited to present to Walmart buyers at the retail giant’s Bentonville, AR headquarters in June 2016 at the Manufacturing Supplier Summit.
Among those entrepreneurs was Cathy Beggan of Rise-N-Shine of Sparta. Since the supplier summit, her company’s flagship product Wake Up On Time™ is now slated to hit over 3,000 Walmart stores nationwide by April 24. Select Walmart locations throughout Texas will additionally carry Rise-N-Shine’s energy supplement Stay Up AllDay™ and its sleep formula Sleep Tight All-Night™.
While at Walmart last June, KNWA-TV, the NBC-affiliate for Northwest Arkansas, interviewed Beggan about her Walmart experience.
“It’s something that I’ve been actually striving for since I started my business 10 years ago,” Beggan said during her interview. “This is something I’ve dreamed of and thought of and worked towards, so it’s really a wonderful opportunity.”
The goal of having her products on Walmart shelves has become a reality for Beggan, who started her company Rise-N-Shine, LLC in 2006. Wake Up On Time™ was conceptualized to solve an age-old dilemma that Beggan found she and many others she encountered suffered from — difficulties in waking up in the morning. An advocate of natural products and remedies, Beggan brainstormed with experts in the field to create Wake Up On Time™, a time-released capsule taken before bedtime to promote natural wakefulness following six to eight hours of sleep. Some have compared the Wake Up On Time™ energy formula to a natural replacement for their morning cup of coffee. Stay Up All-Day™ is the company’s all-natural, calorie-free, maximum energy blend to help those who take it to feel energized throughout the day. Unlike the array of energy drinks on the market, those who have used Stay Up All-Day™ have reported they have
not experienced the jitters common after drinking many popular energy boosting beverages, which often contain sugars and stimulants.
For occasional sleeplessness, Sleep Tight All-Night™ is Rise-N-Shine’s natural sleep formula, with melatonin, magnesium, Hops Flower and other ingredients to help promote a restful night’s sleep.
All of Rise-N-Shine’s products are manufactured for safety in the United States of America in a world-class, climate-controlled, FDA-inspected facility, with the highestquality ingredients. Rise-n-Shine’s products meet or exceed the high U.S. Pharmacopeia standards and FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Walmart’s pledge to invest in small and mid-size American-based companies like RiseN-Shine is expected to translate to one million new jobs within the United States by 2023.
