Republic Bank is America’s #1 Bank for Service
Republic First Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRBK), the parent company of
Republic Bank, today unveils its brand new tagline as America’s #1
Bank for Service, following the results of a national consumer
satisfaction survey commissioned earlier this year by Forbes. The
tagline will be rolled out in a series of advertisements,
promotional materials and in-store marketing initiatives.
With legendary banker Vernon W. Hill, II at the
helm, the Forbes award recognizes the Republic Bank model of
creating FANS! not customers by delivering a unified customer
experience in-store, online and via mobile.
As the top-scoring bank nationally on Forbes’
third-annual list of Best-In-State Banks and Credit Unions, survey
respondents noted that the presence of physical stores, longer
hours than competitors, dog-friendly policies and free services
such as coin counting were key differentiators for Republic Bank.
The list was derived from surveying nearly 25,000 people in the
U.S. about their banking relationships. Customers were asked a
series of questions about their financial dealings, and the banks
were rated on overall satisfaction in addition to five
sub-dimensions: trust, terms and conditions, branch services,
digital services and financial advice.
Republic Bank continues to expand its footprint
throughout Philadelphia, Southern New Jersey and New York City as
part of its “The Power of Red is Back” growth plan. Republic Bank’s
30 stores are open seven days a week, 361 days a year, with
extended lobby and drive-thru hours, providing customers incredible
convenience and flexibility. The bank also offers absolutely free
checking, ATM/Debit cards and credit cards issued on the spot and
access to more than 55,000 surcharge free ATMs worldwide via the
