Out of a pool of nearly 12,000 nominations, Arkansas City has been named a Top 20 Finalist to be featured in the next season of Small Business Revolution – Main Street. The chosen community will receive a $500,000 revitalization grant and be featured in an eight-part web series that will air on smallbusinessrevolution.org, Hulu, and YouTube. Arkansas City is the only city in Kansas to make the Top 20. The series is a project of Deluxe Corporation, which offers products and services to nearly 4.4 million small business customers, including customized checks and forms, website development and hosting, email marketing, social media, search engine optimization and logo design.
Now through December 11th, Deluxe executives will gather more information from the Top 20 communities before narrowing its list to 10 finalists to visit in the month of January. Eventually, five communities will be selected for a national vote to determine the winner, and that announcement will come in late February.
