SHOREVIEW, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Deluxe (NYSE:DLX), a Trusted Business Technology™ company, today announced that Fredonia, New York is the winner of Season 5 of the Small Business Revolution contest. Fredonia edged out four other communities in a national public vote.
The town of Fredonia will receive a $500,000 revitalization from Deluxe for select small businesses and the downtown area and be featured in the acclaimed series that streams on Hulu, Prime Video and SmallBusinessRevolution.org.
Since the series began in 2016, Deluxe has received more than 35,000 nominations from small towns across the country. During the week-long voting process for Season 5, nearly one million votes were cast, with Fredonia coming out on top. The other communities in the contest were Benicia, California; Livingston, Montana; Spearfish, South Dakota; and, The Dalles, Oregon.
“At Deluxe, we pride ourselves on being champions for business so communities thrive,” said Amanda Brinkman, Deluxe’s Chief Brand & Content Officer and host of the show. “The Small Business Revolution truly embodies that spirit in how we showcase and support businesses that are the lifeblood of their communities.
“Each of the five towns should be incredibly proud of the work they’ve done the past few months and we hope they all continue the momentum they gained being part of this contest and continue to make positive change in each of their communities,” Brinkman said.
Several Deluxe team members toured the U.S. in December, visiting the top 10 communities considered for this year’s contest. From there, the top five towns were selected for a public vote that ended on January 21.
