History & Highlights
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. It was also in May of that year that FSI became the first company to license the in-store banking concept by the trademark, The Supermarket Bank®. FSI has remained a respected leader and consultant in this expanding and ever changing segment.
Our staff includes experienced bankers and retailers to provide exceptional advice and consultation; innovative designers for beautiful and functional branch facilities; seasoned project managers for smooth installations; and marketing specialists and sales trainers to provide on-going assistance.
A strategic partnership has been developed with the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) chose Financial Supermarkets, Inc. as their preferrred provider for customized private label in-store financial services. This endorsement of FSI offers FMI’s members a complete package of design, fabrication, installation, marketing, training and operations for financial centers in supermarkets.
