First Tennessee Bank executives and the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce celebrate the grand reopening of the bank’s Franklin Main Financial Center

Franklin, Tenn. – May 14, 2019 – First Tennessee Bank recently celebrated the grand reopening of its Franklin Main Financial Center with a public open house and official ribbon cutting ceremony in partnership with the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce. The event offered tours of the modernized facility in the heart of downtown Franklin’s historic square, which began renovations June 27, 2016.

First Tennessee Bank’s Middle Tennessee President Carol Yochem welcomed the crowd of community members and leaders with a piece of First Tennessee Bank history.

“First National Bank was founded in Memphis in 1864, the same year as the Battle of Franklin. Since then the bank has prospered and expanded. Over a century and a half later, that same bank is now First Tennessee, the oldest and largest bank headquartered in the state. Today First Tennessee remains committed to attracting the best employees, investing in our community and serving our customers, one opportunity at a time,” said Yochem.

“With 49 branch locations across Middle Tennessee, First Tennessee Bank serves every community with dedication. We couldn’t be more pleased to have such a dedicated team serving the city of Franklin,” said Nancy Conway, senior vice president of community outreach with the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Franklin Main Financial Center Manager Ben Wheeler added: “I’m very honored to celebrate the opening of the Franklin Main branch here in this beautiful building. I was blessed to have the opportunity to join First Tennessee and to be a part of such a great team. I look forward to serving this great community.”

The Franklin Main Financial Center is located at 231 Public Square. Operating hours are 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 8:30 am to 6:00 pm on Friday.
