Encore Bank Completes Port Charlotte Branch Remodel

Tom Ray, CEO of Encore Bank, is pleased to announce that the comprehensive remodel of the bank’s Port Charlotte branch was recently completed. Located at 2120 Kings Highway, the branch is unique in many aspects, including its lack of a teller line.

The building now features a clean, modern, welcoming aesthetic to match the community bank’s five other locations from Sun City Center to Naples. The bank looks and feels like an elegant living room, with alcove shelving, a flat screen television and plenty of comfortable seating. Fresh coffee and cookies are even served.

Rather than standing in a teller line, all customers meet with a personal banker, whether they need to deposit a piggy bank’s worth of coins or obtain a home mortgage.

Branch Manager Katherine Robinson said, “Customers tell us they love the personal service they’ve always received, but now it feels like a special occasion every time they step through the door. Our employees also enjoy the spacious, well-lit design and efficiency of the layout.”

Another of Encore Bank’s priorities was to hire a local builder so the investment could stay in the community that Encore Bank’s Port Charlotte Branch serves. Southwest Florida-based Boyette & Miller Construction and Development completed the renovations on time, and the finished product was revealed during a recent open house.

The remodel rounds out a year of exciting growth in service offerings and personnel for Encore Bank, which has dramatically expanded its consumer and commercial lending department in response to increased demand across Southwest Florida.

Encore Bank has six convenient locations, including two branches in Naples at 3003 Tamiami Trail North and 2370 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Bonita Springs at 4450 Bonita Beach Road, Fort Myers at 7920 Summerlin Lakes Dr., Port Charlotte at 2120 Kings Highway, and Sun City Center at 1653 Sun City Center Plaza.
