From thousands of nominations for the town that will be featured in Small Business Revolution – Main Street Season 3, we first narrowed it to our Top 20. Now, we are excited to announce the Top 10 towns that will continue on and be visited by the Small Business Revolution team in January.

Top 10 Phase: On Dec. 12, we announced 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’re 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 for 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 3. 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 span March-June 2018.
What’s at Stake?
Catch up on Season 1 and Season 2 to see what’s at stake for the winning town, and be sure to follow along on social as we begin this incredible journey all over again.
