WACO, TX — TFNB announced it's opening a new branch location in East Waco, and people in the area are excited.
People said the bank is the one of the first to open in the area.
"if we need banking services, we have to go like across the river, or Bellmead or some other areas. With this bank we can have legitimate services," said Jeanette Bell with North East Riverside Neighborhood Association.
According to TFNB's website, the bank was founded as The First National Bank of McGregor in 1889. TFNB is the oldest bank in McLennan County and the seventh oldest national bank in Texas still operating under its original charter, according to the bank.
The bank is known for it's relationship banking, and also community reinvestment, something people in East Waco hope will help motivate other businesses to open in the area.
This is the 5th TFNB location. The new TFNB is set to open along Elm Avenue in the location of the current Train Waco Crossfit Gym.
So far no word on when the bank is expected to be open.
