First Freedom Bank has purchased a location in Donelson and plans to open a full service office in 2016, announced John Lancaster, president and chief executive officer. Previously a SunTrust Bank branch, the building at 2725 Old Lebanon Pike in the Donelson Plaza will undergo a complete overhaul to be in line with First Freedom's technological and service standards.
Upon completion, the 6,500 square foot office will have private offices for lending, mortgage and investment services. It will include customer safety deposit boxes accessible through state of the art hand print technology and a sizable conference room. The retail lobby will be equipped with Wi-Fi capabilities for customer convenience and demonstration of bank products. Externally, the office will offer 4 drive-through windows with video conferencing abilities, a secure night depository and 24-hour ATM facility.
"We are very excited about our entry into the Donelson market and specifically this location," stated Lancaster. "First Freedom's focus on small business solutions and consumer banking capabilities will be a great fit for the business-heavy Donelson area. We look forward to showing the community how we can add value to their business."
The Donelson office will be First Freedom's fourth retail location, and its first outside of Wilson County. The bank currently operates two retail offices in Mt. Juliet and one in Lebanon. All offices are supported from the bank's operations facility in Mt. Juliet.
