Aquesta Bank to open new branch in Cornelius

Cornelius-based Aquesta Bank announced plans Thursday to open a second branch in its hometown, its latest brick-and-mortar expansion.

The new location will be in the Food Lion shopping center near the intersection of Main Street and Catawba Avenue. The nearly 2,000-foot space will have tellers, a cash recycler and two back offices the bank will lease out.

Aquesta Bank says it will cross-train all its employees in the branch as part of a "universal staffing model."

Last month, the bank broke ground on a new location in Huntersville. Both that branch and the new Cornelius location are expected to open in the spring.
