“You know the money you’re spending with them is being reinvested right here on a daily basis. I have also bought their stock. I believe in this bank. I see the value of what they’re doing in their local communities and I think it’s going to pay off long term.”

"The Community Bank decided to move into the Licking County area a couple of years ago and the timing was very good for us. At that point in time we were banking in larger banks and it just didn't seem like that was going to be a long-term positive for us. The Community Bank's Jim Holman contacted us for kind of an introductory talk about finances and banking needs. Jim was able to offer us everything we needed at that point in time in terms of helping the company move forward. They've been providing all our banking services ever since and we're extremely happy with them. The Community Bank really is the Spirit of Small Business."

"It's super important for a small business to choose the correct financial partner. The Community Bank understands small business. They're personable and they take the time to listen. They're a true banking partner as opposed to the big bank cold shoulder. And, their people bring an extraordinary amount of knowledge and wisdom to the table to help a business understand the direction they need to go to be successful. And, if you work with them, you know that money stays right here in the community. My partner, Trevor Prince and I definitely rely on them."

"We started our business over 37 years ago, and in that time we've been with several other banks. But, ever since we've been with The Community Bank, we've appreciated how they work with small businesses. We have our own local customers so we know how important it is to keep the business here. It's good for the community. After all, there are only a few small banks left anymore and we're happy to support The Community Bank. They've always been there for us and other small business friends in our community. We trust them completely."

"Just like we're a hometown grocery store, they're a hometown bank. The Community Bank and Reisbeck's are very like minded in the fact that we're here for the community. We're all neighbors, so there's a lot in common. When we go into the bank, we talk about family and stuff that's going on in town. As a small retail business, Riesbeck's believes they're a good company to work with because you know they're all about the best for the community. When you get that professionalism, quality and quantity of service, why would you go anywhere else?"
