Although the Menifee branch of Chase Bank opened their doors to the public on November 1st, the celebratory ribbon-cutting event making it official took place nearly a month later on the morning of Friday, December 2, 2011.
Members of the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce officiated the ceremony while Chase Bank team employees, as well as area and district managers, looked on with pride and approval.
Branch manager Laura Riesenberg gave the opening remarks stating, “As the first Chase branch in Menifee, we are excited to serve the city with all of their banking needs.”
In reference to their success over their first month in action, Riesenberg observed, “It is the perfect location.” Many new customers have opened accounts, and existing customers have switched to the Marketplace branch because of convenience.
Chase bank is currently the largest, and healthiest, bank in the country. With their increasing growth comes a continual need for more employees. One of their goals being to create jobs in the community, they are always accepting applications, interviewing, and hiring. In fact, they are even now hiring at the Countryside Marketplace location in Menifee.
Mabel Torres has lived in the Menifee Valley her entire life and now works as a teller at the Chase Menifee branch. She has been banking at the Scott Road location for some time, when her teller told her about the location opening up in Menifee. She applied and began training in Wildomar while construction was under way, and now she loves working so close to home.
As a company Chase is all about helping people. They have recently opened specific Home Ownership Centers with the sole purpose to help keep people in their homes and manage their mortgages. In this way they have created a direct line of access for the public to receive help with the overwhelming housing market.
Over 500 branches are scheduled to open through out California within the next year, each and every one focused on serving the community and looking for new ways to help out in any way they can.
During the Friday ceremony, they noted that the Menifee location in particular has some of the kindest and most helpful surrounding business owners. Darcy Kuenzi followed up in full agreement, “Menifee really is a close knit business community.”
The Friday ribbon cutting will be followed with an official all day Saturday grand opening celebration. Chase will be offering $125 to new checking customers who open a Chase Total Checking account and set up direct deposit. After all, their motto is Chase makes banking easier, you can’t argue with that.
