After receiving thousands of nominations last year from small towns across the country, Deluxe Corporation announced the 20 communities that are in the running for Season 4 of their highly acclaimed Small Business Revolution – Main Street series.
The series, which airs on www.smallbusinessrevolution.org, Hulu and YouTube, features marketing and business expertise for small businesses in one small town. Host Amanda Brinkman, Deluxe’s chief brand and communications officer, along with marketing experts from Deluxe and renovation icon Ty Pennington, help struggling business owners find their path to success.
Nominations poured in from all 50 states with nearly 12,000 received in total. Over the next month, Deluxe executives gathered more information from the Top 20 communities before narrowing its list to 10 finalists to visit in the month of January. Eventually, five communities will be selected for a national vote to determine the winner.
“Last year, we added the Top 20 round to gather even more information about communities nominated,” Brinkman said. “It is inspiring to watch how people in these towns love their communities and advocate for a chance to be in our final five. Watching communities come together to support their small businesses is what makes the Small Business Revolution so incredible.”
Deluxe, a leading provider of small business marketing and financial services, launched Small Business Revolution – Main Street in 2016, sharing the inspirational stories of Wabash, Indiana in Season 1 and Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania in Season 2. All eight episodes of Season 3, featuring Alton, Illinois, along with the previous seasons, are available online at SmallBusinessRevolution.org or on Hulu.
Winchester is very proud to have been a Top 20 finalist!
