Small Business RevolutionMain Street

Small businesses are saving our main streets. This is their story.

As we traveled the country, capturing the inspiring stories of 100 small businesses, we recognized that nowhere in America are small businesses more critical, and more under siege, than in our small towns.

We created the Small Business Revolution – Main Street to help those small businesses, and in turn, those small towns, reignite the spark that drives them and keeps people coming back.

Each season, we seek out America’s most inspiring small towns, and award the winner – and six of its small businesses – a $500,000 revitalization and feature the transformation in an original series.

Season 1: Wabash, IN

Behind the smiles and the good nature are issues that plague every small town: What do you do with abandoned buildings downtown, and how do you support small businesses?

Season 2: Bristol Borough, PA

Once a prospering mill town, Bristol’s main street boomed. When the mills closed, jobs left and so did the people. The town started turning into a shell of what it once was.
