The City of Durant has been named a finalist to be featured on Season 4 of the hit reality series “Small Business Revolution – Main Street”, which streams on Hulu, YouTube and the series’ official website.
Deluxe Corporation, which produces the series, received nearly 12,000 nominations, narrowing down the list to the top six cities across the United States.
The finalists for Season 4 are:
- Camas, Washington
- Canon City, Colorado
- Corsicana, Texas
- Durant, Oklahoma
- Searcy, Arkansas
- Washington, North Carolina
Spearheaded by Durant Main Street, the City of Durant hosted a hugely successful community event late last month welcoming the producers of the show who were researching and touring various cities in consideration of today’s announcement naming their finalists for this season.
“We’re thrilled that the City of Durant has been named a finalist for this exciting series,” said Oklahoma Film + Music Office Director Tava Maloy Sofsky. “The entire community and its leadership have demonstrated how much they value this opportunity. Likewise, we share in their enthusiasm as landing this series would not only allow for the continued growth of Durant’s economic and business development, but additionally expand the impact of film and television production throughout the state.”
Members of the public can now vote for their favorite city. The winning community will be featured on the series and earn a $500,000 marketing and business transformation. Small business owners in the winning town will also receive marketing support and business advice from a team of Deluxe Corporation marketing experts, including chief brand and communications officer Amanda Brinkman, who serves as the host of the show alongside TV personality and renovation icon Ty Pennington (“Extreme Home Makeover”).
Voting is open February 12-19. For more information and to vote, visit MyDurant.com/vote.
