Butcher Bar must submit a questionnaire outlining a business plan that will result in growth of the business and receive at least 250 votes to be eligible for a grant.

The voting deadline is November 15, 2013 and grant recipients will be selected by expert panelists.
Through Mission Main Street Grants, Chase will award $3 million to small business across America. All businesses that apply for a grant and meet the eligibility requirements will receive a special advertising offer from Premier Sponsor, Google.
