SmartBank Breaks Ground in Pigeon Forge

Posted by | October 3, 2006 | News | No Comments

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – Work is underway on the new SmartBank office in Pigeon Forge. Located at 2430 Teaster Lane in the Teaster Crossing development, the facility will be a full-service branch and will also house the Bank’s operations and corporate offices.

“With the word ‘smart’ in our name, it challenges us at every turn to make better decisions,” said Chairman Bill Carroll. “We decided it was smarter to lease space for our corporate offices and use our shareholder’s capital to grow the bank as quickly as possible. This location allows us to open our first location much quicker.”

When completed, the office will be approximately 10,000 square feet. Trotter & Associates is the architect for the project and D & S Builders has been selected as the contractor. An exact opening date will be determined as the project takes further shape timed in conjunction with the Bank’s regulatory process.

“The design of this branch is unique to the community with a bright, fresh look and with some special touches that will make banking easy and smart for our clients,” said President and CEO Billy Carroll. “We want it to be a place where people can enjoy the ease of the drive-thru, but will really be drawn inside to enjoy an upbeat and distinctive experience. It will support our mission of Building Exceptional Value.

Until the office opens, you can find the Bank’s management team working close by in one of the adjoining suites at Teaster Crossing next to their future home. In addition to the Pigeon Forge location, the Bank will begin construction on its Sevierville branch soon, located at 1011 Parkway.
