June 24, 2014 – Cornelius, NC – Aquesta Bank is pleased to announce that a second branch in Cornelius has been opened. The new branch, located in Downtown Cornelius, opened today and will make it easier for the bank to service customers on the east side of town. Aquesta's new location is currently the only bank located on the east side of Cornelius.
The new branch is located in a renovated end cap unit of the Food Lion Shopping Center behind Cornelius Town Hall, (20121 North Main Street, Ste. A).
Architect, Roger Layman, was contracted to design the existing space. The 1888 square foot branch has teller stations as well as an Electronic Cash Recycler that assists tellers in providing fast, accurate cash transactions while freeing the staff to focus on relationships with their customers. Aquesta has implemented a "universal staffing model" at the Downtown Cornelius location where all employees are cross trained.
The branch has several offices including two back offices that will be leased out by the bank. Aquesta Insurance Services will also have an office available to customers by appointment. Bartles Construction Solutions, Inc. was hired to renovate the space.
A ribbon cutting celebration will be held on Thursday, July 10 at 11 AM with Cornelius Mayor Chuck Travis, the Lake Norman Chamber, and local Town Commissioners.
