[ARCHIVED] Biddeford Selected in Top Ten of National Competition, Could Win $500,000 Prize for Small Businesses

Biddeford is once again receiving national attention and a chance to win a substantial prize that will further rejuvenate the community.

Heart of Biddeford was one of over 12,000 organizations around the country to apply to have their city be featured on Season 4 of The Small Business Revolution – Main Street. The eight-part web series, which will air in fall of 2019 on Hulu, will feature six small businesses from one lucky community that will receive a combined total of $500,000 of business assistance paid for by Deluxe Corporation. Out of the thousands of applicants, Biddeford was announced as one of the Top 20 communities in November and officially landed a place in the Top 10 last week thanks to community members sharing their favorite small businesses with Deluxe Corporation using the hashtag #MyBiddeford. Biddeford is the only community in the northeastern United States in the Top 10.

Each of the Top 10 communities will receive a visit from the show’s crew within the next several weeks that will help Deluxe decide which cities move on to the Top 5 of the competition in February. Biddeford will welcome Amanda Brinkman, the Chief Brand Officer of Deluxe Corporation and the host of the show, on January 21, 2019.
