The Transformation of Banking
In January of 1984, our founder, the late J. Alton Wingate, Sr. opened the first Supermarket Bank® in Cornelia, Georgia for Community Bank & Trust inside an Ingles Supermarket; shortly thereafter, FSI became the first company to license the in-store banking concept by the trademark, The Supermarket Bank®. FSI has since become the preeminent leader and consultant in this expanding and everchanging segment.
