Community-Based Businesses

Small and community-based businesses are a big part of what keeps our Frederick community vibrant and unique. From locally-owned restaurants, shops, and entertainment to craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries, Frederick has a lot of offer.

At FCB we believe in entrepreneurs and innovators, disrupters and trailblazers, and those looking to turn their ideas into reality. We know the challenges and rewards of the business journey because we ourselves have grown from a core group of individuals with a dream to a team of 75 employees supporting that common goal. FCB provides forward-thinking services and integrates technology into both our products and our approach. When you need flexible financial solutions for your business, we're ready to support you - because we understand where you are and where you're headed.

Check in with your business

When evaluating what you may need for your business consider the following:

  • How do your customers want to pay? What challenges have you faced handling mobile, credit card, and check payments?
  • What delays do you experience from receipt of credit card payment from your customer to available funds in your bank account?
  • What upgrades or remodeling plans do you have to differentiate your business from others in the area and national competitors?
  • How do daily and seasonal changes in customer traffic affect your cash flow?
  • How do your payment terms with vendors affect your operations and cash flow?
  • What difficulties do you face in paying staff, payroll taxes, and reporting?

Benefits of Community Banking

Where you choose to bank matters. It’s your voice on what’s important to you and an opportunity to be part of a larger movement that has a big impact. The same way you may shop local stores, buy local produce and foods, and support local charities, when you bank locally you are investing in the success and prosperity of our community. How does it work? Every bank invests in something. Community banks like ours, invest in the local economy through things like small business loans.
