The Small Business Revolution is on a mission to revitalize small towns, one small business at a time. Each season, America chooses a winning town, we choose the featured small businesses, and Deluxe and a host of celebrity experts give them the makeover of a lifetime – all on our quest to put Main Street back on the map.
Now we’re on the hunt for the Season 4 town! During the call for nominations between Oct. 4-26, nearly 12,000 nominations poured in and we’ve narrowed that down to the Top 20. This is the first of three exciting phases designed to help us find the towns that will go up for a public vote. Congratulations to the selected towns and follow along as we continue the journey!
Top 20 Towns
Arkansas City, KS
Canon City, CO
Fergus Falls, MN
Marinette, WI/Menominee, MI
Morgan City, LA
Rock Springs, WY
Top 20 Phase: On Nov. 13 we announced the Top 20 towns. While incredibly hard to choose from the thousands of nominations, these towns represent those in which we felt our presence could make a real impact. In this phase, the town leaders will receive a questionnaire and will be reaching out to community members and small businesses to solicit support for the project. They will also conduct a phone interview with Deluxe. Reach out to your town leader if you are interested in rallying support!
Top 10 Phase: On Dec. 11, we will announce the Top 10 towns. These are the towns that we’ll be visiting in January. Our team will be on the road all month long, coming to meet all of you and learning more about each town and its small businesses, and how they would benefit from our Main Street revitalization. This is the phase where we’ll be calling on your communities to rally and get active on social media, sharing all the things you love about your town!
Top 5 Phase: Visiting the towns and hearing from all of you will help us determine the towns in which we think we could make the biggest impact. In mid-February, we'll announce the Top 5 finalists that will be up for a weeklong public vote to see which town will be featured in Season 4. For the towns that make the cut, this will be an incredibly exciting (and exhausting) week!
Winner Announcement: We’ll announce the public’s choice at the end of February! That’s when the real work begins for the winning town. Small businesses will be invited to apply to be featured on the show and we’ll begin that selection process. Filming for the series will run from March – August of 2019.
