To many, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for three things: family, food…and football! Intuit recently teamed up with entrepreneur Bill Rancic and legendary NFL coach Jimmy Johnson to reward one lucky small business with the ultimate touchdown – a 30 second commercial during football’s biggest game of the year!
Small Business, Big Game launched in September with the aim of giving small businesses everywhere more visibility. At the campaign kick-off, Intuit asked small businesses to submit an online video sharing their company story. Contestants then rallied support from their on- and offline communities to increase their odds of advancing to the next round. Next, approximately 8,000 Intuit employees worldwide narrowed down the competition to the final four contestants, each of which is receiving a Small Business Big Game reward package, which includes television advertising, a professionally produced commercial, a meeting with Bill Rancic and a Game Day viewing party.
Now it’s up to the public to choose their favorite finalist for Small Business Big Game. So while you’re rooting for your favorite team on turkey day, take a moment to vote for your favorite small business and get to the big game! Here are the contenders:
- Barley Labs, of Durham, N.C. – Produces all-natural dog treats in various flavors out of recycled barley from a local brewery.
- GoldieBlox, of Oakland, Calif. – A toy company inspiring girls to push the limits and think outside the box.
- Locally Laid Egg Company, of Duluth, Minn. – Raises hens on pasture to produce healthier poultry and eggs.
- POOP – Natural Dairy Compost, of Nampa, Idaho – Produces natural and odorless composted dairy manure for lawns, gardens and flowerbeds.

Show thanks and give one small business the opportunity of a lifetime!
