Spirits were high and the anticipation in the air was thick as a large crowd gathered at the Annex at Teek way before the sun even came up to watch the announcement of the Top 5 in the competition to be featured on Season 4 of HULU TV show “Small Business Revolution – Main Street.” Visits by the Small Business Revolution team to the Top 10 cities in the past few weeks helped to determine the towns in which the team thought they could make the biggest impact.
GREAT NEWS: Cañon City made it as a finalist!
Cañon City is now one of the Top 6 towns still in the competition. (The Small Business Revolution folks usually pick 5 towns for the final phase, but they said they just couldn’t narrow it down to 5, so you know the competition must be fierce)!
We now proceed to the next phase of the competition, and I say “we” because this is where we ALL get involved. In this final phase, the competition is put into the hands of the public to determine who will win the top spot. The voting has already started, so if you haven’t already done so, hurry on over to www.votecanoncity.com, to submit your first vote! You may vote once per day per email address. Please encourage absolutely EVERYONE you know to vote every single day. You don’t have to live in Cañon City, in Fremont County, in Colorado, or even in this country to vote! The voting will last for ONE WEEK, ending on February 19. The final announcement will be made on February 26.
Congratulations and thank you SO much to everyone who put in incredible amounts of work to get Cañon City this far in the competition. And a huge THANK YOU to Tara at Teek for generously providing the space PLUS breakfast and coffee for the watch party this morning!
