FREDONIA – The Village of Fredonia is in the running to receive a half-million dollar transformation as a top five finalist on the hit reality show “Small Business Revolution.”
On Tuesday morning the village found out they made the top five list after it was previously announced they were in the top 10.
Residents gathered early at the Fredonia Opera House to watch the announcement, which took place 6:45 a.m.
“It’s been an amazing process already,” said Fredonia Mayor Douglas Esseck. “It will continue to be an amazing process. This means that we’ll have six small businesses or not-for-profits be the recipient of $500,000 and some type of revitalization aid.”
So far, show’s hosts have traveled to meet with each small town to learn more about how they could benefit from the makeover.
