Tulsa’s Woodstock Cabinets is among the businesses participating in the new CNBC reality competition series “Crowd Rules,” which premieres at 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 14.
Details on “Crowd Rules,” provided in a news release, are as follows:
Each week, “Crowd Rules” features three small businesses that compete in front of an audience of 100 that votes to decide who wins a much-needed $50,000 prize. Entrepreneur and jewelry designer Kendra Scott, TV Newsman Pat Kiernan, along with a weekly guest industry expert, lead the examination of the small businesses in order to help a studio audience choose which company wins the $50,000. While the small business owners make their case to the panel of three, the real power lies in the hands of the audience 97 strong whose votes will ultimately decide which business is most deserving of the investment.
