Fremont Bank's San Francisco Branch Moves to New Location
by Kimberly Brokaw
Fremont Bank is pleased to announce its full-service San Francisco Branch is relocating to bigger and better offices at 200 Townsend Street. "There have been plans all along to move to a larger permanent location," says Regional Manager Martha Cifuentes.
Fremont Bank opened its San Francisco Branch at the end of 2003 to bring a community bank focused on relationships to the city, and its popularity has stretched the capacity of the temporary facilities. "We have had great growth during our first year in San Francisco out of a temporary location," said Denise Piper, Director Community Bank Sales. "We have clients who have businesses in San Francisco, clients who work there and clients who live there."
The new, bigger facilities provide clients with spacious state-of-the-art banking and more signature products such as safe deposit boxes and online banking inside the branch. Friendly niceties like varieties of fresh-brewed coffee or tea make the experience more unique and parking is also available in the bank's new building.
Along with providing a convenient location for East Bay commuters, the San Francisco branch brings Fremont Bank's 40-year tradition of community banking to the area. "We really bring something I think people want," Cifuentes says. "We have an interest in our communities and the local programs. For example, in San Francisco, we are helping the mayor with his homeless program."
"Our service is like no other," Piper says. "The great growth during our first year is because of the relationships we build. We give clients choices on how they like to bank." In the years to come, Fremont Bank expects to continue to expand its presence and philosophy of community banking.
