Acclaimed show, streaming at SmallBusinessRevolution.org and Hulu,
shows how Deluxe marketing experts and TV personality Ty Pennington make
over Alton, Illinois and its businesses
SHOREVIEW, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 4, 2018--
Corporation is debuting Season 3 of Small
Business Revolution – Main Street, an online series that each season
showcases the $500,000 revitalization of one small town and its small
The third season’s eight episodes chronicle the community and small
businesses of Alton, Illinois. Deluxe received thousands of nominations
and put five finalists up to a vote, with the public ultimately
selecting Alton. For the first time, all of the season’s episodes are
being released simultaneously, now streaming at
SmallBusinessRevolution.org, Hulu and on YouTube.
Season 3 illustrates how the Deluxe team of small business marketing
experts helped revitalize six selected businesses and the Alton
community. This year’s small business transformations range from a
mother-and-son duo operating a beloved, yet still-struggling soul food
restaurant, to a pet groomer who provides exceptional customer service
but works around the clock, to young business partners seeking to move
their music studio into a larger space.
Each business faced unique challenges – some were on the verge of
shuttering entirely – and Deluxe experts positioned them for success.
Now, the public is invited to nominate the town they believe should win
Deluxe’s next $500,000 Small Business Revolution revitalization.
“On the heels of two successful seasons, we knew that Season 3 would
have an impact far beyond the businesses that are featured in the show,”
said Amanda Brinkman, Chief Brand and Communications Officer at Deluxe.
“When watching this season, you’ll find tips that are applicable to
entrepreneurs across America – and you will see what is at stake for
Season 4 before nominating your favorite small town.”
Deluxe provided a range of marketing services, from website development
to logo design to social media strategy. In addition to Deluxe marketing
experts, Season 3 stars renovation icon Ty Pennington and six female
business leaders who are nationally recognized as experts within their
respective fields. Working together, the full cast tackles business,
cultural and economic challenges facing the unique community of Alton,
while providing advice that is applicable to small businesses and
communities of all sizes throughout the country.
“My career has focused on helping transform individual people’s homes
and lives, and joining Small Business Revolution – Main Street gave me
the opportunity to help Deluxe transform an entire community,” said
Pennington. “These inspiring small businesses and the passionate people
behind them are what make our towns so special. I cannot wait to see
which towns are nominated for season 4!”
Alton is a riverfront community separated from Missouri and the St.
Louis metro area by the Mississippi River. Steeped in history, Alton is
the largest community to ever win Deluxe’s $500,000 makeover.
Deluxe, a leading provider of small-business marketing and financial
services, launched the Small Business Revolution – Main Street contest
in 2016 and shared the inspiring stories of Wabash, Indiana in Season 1
and of Bristol Borough in Season 2, making a long-term, lasting impact
in both towns. In each episode of Season 3, the Deluxe marketing team
and Pennington tackle, business and personal issues facing small
business owners and community leaders. The series captures the struggle
to run a business in a small town and the triumph of a community coming
together. For more information, please visit www.smallbusinessrevolution.org.
