The Prettie Girls to Be Sold in H-E-B Stores; One World Doll Project Becomes Approved Vendor to Texas' Largest Privately Held Hypermarket

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OWOO) ("One World") announced today that its subsidiary, The One World Doll Project, has become an approved vendor to major regional hypermarket store chain, HEB Grocery Company, LP ("H-E-B"), where H-E-B will now begin carrying The Prettie Girls!™ multi-cultural dolls.

"This is just the beginning," stated Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings. "A number of very lucrative opportunities have opened up for us with several big-box stores. However, as a Texas based company, H-E-B is one of the most exciting ways to begin our transcendence from concept to substantially scaling-up revenues for 2014."

Working with H-E-B, a regional hypermarket superstore, operating five brands and over 350 stores throughout Texas and northern Mexico, will provide One World with a strong foundation to launch its subsidiary's brand into various megastores across the country. While management continues ongoing talks with other big-box chains -- which executives anticipate closing on another distribution arrangement within the 2nd Quarter -- the relationship with H-E-B affords One World greater flexibility and faster growth opportunity.

Ms. Melton concluded, "With the support of our founders, Trent T. Daniel and Stacy McBride-Irby, One World was able to establish a relationship with Texas' largest privately held company, in a format generally reserved for proven vendors. This truly gives One World a starting advantage as we have an immediate merchandizing venue for any of The One World Doll ancillary products. We are extremely happy to be in such an advantageous position and certainly pleased to have this incredible vendor opportunity. I am thankful to H-E-B for supporting One World, The One World Doll Project and The Prettie Girls!™."
