Foothills Bank to open next year


Foothills Bank and Trust will open its first location in Farragut in June 2010.

“The Bank is based in Maryville, and we’re going to complete our third year anniversary in June, and that’s when we plan to open up in Farragut,” executive vice president Joe Hamdi said.

The Farragut location, 11215 Kingston Pike, will be Foothills’ third location in the Greater Knoxville area.

“Farragut was part of the original plan when we formed the bank.

“We feel it is a good market for us to help some existing clients that we have, and also be able to provide services for the rest of the community there,” Hamdi said.

“We do have a lot of customers there already; we want to expand that base,” he added.


The Bank, in the former CBBC building in front of the old Kroger, will be full service.

“We’re really on the lending side: specialize in small business loans, real estate loans, mortgage loans, and then on to the … checking accounts, CDs, cash management for businesses and Internet banking,” Hamdi said.

Hamdi said the Bank will be staffed with an as-yet undetermined number of local employees.

“We’re going to be part of the community,” Hamdi said.

“Our number one priority is to take care of our customers, and we feel we’re really good at it,” he added.
