Heinen's launches competition for local manufacturers

Ohio artisans and entrepreneurs will vie to get their products on Heinen’s store shelves in a competition loosely modeled on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” the retailer announced.

“Shark Bank” seeks submissions of non-perishable food items and non-alcoholic beverages by June 12. Heinen’s buyers, category managers and chefs will narrow the entries down to 10 semi-finalists.
