On July 13th, BankFirst celebrated the groundbreaking for their new 3,857 square foot branch bank. This new location will have a multiple lane drive-thru and will be located just north of Highway 20, at 3800 Dakota Avenue, South Sioux City. This new branch will provide all services expected of a full service bank, and utilize the new ITM (interactive teller machine) technology for the drive thru customers, with which those customers will interact with a BankFirst employee through a webcam from the comfort of their own vehicle. The ITM will also provide extended hours for the convenience of BankFirst customers. President Clark Froehlich says “this is an exciting time for our bank and we could not be more pleased how welcoming South Sioux City has been to our organization”.
