Waggies by Maggie & Friends is a non-profit dog treat company whose mission is to employ persons with intellectual disabilities.
Locally made in our own state of Delaware, these all-natural, vet-approved treats are made with the finest ingredients and contain no preservatives. A purchase of Waggies rewards your dog while supporting employment for members of our immediate community who want to be part of the workforce. It’s surely a winning combination! Harvest Market stocks their 8 oz. bag of Peanut Butter Dog Bones, as well as their 4 oz. bag of Peanut Butter Kibble.
Founded in November 2007, Waggies by Maggie & Friends is a nonprofit company headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. The organization employs persons with intellectual disabilities and takes pride in celebrating their work. Waggies is a unique business that brings employees and volunteers together for the daily operation of producing dog treats.
Up to the Challenge
Waggies recently partnered with Concord High School’s SourceAmerica Design Challenge team to improve the speed and accuracy of our packaging process. The SourceAmerica Design Challenge is a national engineering competition aimed at creating innovative workplace technology for people with disabilities.
The Raiders designed an electronic scale that provides clear visual feedback to assist Waggies bakers in the packaging process. The result was a significant improvement in the speed and accuracy of Waggies products and most importantly a great boost to the accomplishments of the already-awesome bakers.
