2018 Main Street Makeover Contest

This contest will operate much the same as the 2017 contest, which resulted in the makeover of Annie’s Fountain City Café in Fond du Lac. As a result of the win, in addition to a renovated, more functional and more visible space, the project attracted more than $50,000 in additional financial and in-kind assistance, as well as significant marketing exposure which has continued through the summer months. Check out the you tube video of the project here:

As in 2017, the winner of the 2018 contest will receive $10,000 in financial assistance towards the project, plus additional technical assistance including a combination of interior and exterior design improvements, marketing and branding assistance and business planning and merchandising assistance, depending on the individual business needs. This assistance will culminate in a multi-day on-site work session to transform and unveil the new storefront and/or interior. We also anticipate working closely with the local Main Street director to coordinate additional local incentives and activities to further highlight the program winner, including leveraging local façade incentives and design assistance and planning tie-in activities such as cash mobs, social media exposure and other local marketing.

Applications from interested businesses will be due by Friday, November 16th. Those intended to apply should notify Main Street staff in advance to coordinated uploading instructions. Applications, including supporting documents, will need to be complete in order to be considered. Applicants will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

Required criteria:

* Location in a designated Main Street district

* Ability to contribute or secure local match funds of $10,000 (greater match is allowable)

* Willingness of business owner/landlord to participate in program. Participation will require:

o Permission from landlord (if separate entity) for improvements to property

o Willingness of business owner to be closed for a minimum of 2 days during the renovation period in April

o Willingness of business owner to participate in planning meetings/calls in January/February to design a makeover strategy

Five finalists will be selected from among all applicants received, with one or more winning businesses selected to receive a full ‘makeover package’.
