Our Story

Republic Bank was founded in 1988 and for the first 20 years offered primarily commercial banking services. Over the past 14 years, we have grown to 34 retail locations, while becoming one of the top small business lenders in the tri-state area.

2019 marked a major milestone for Republic Bank when we expanded our footprint into New York, opening two stores in Manhattan. Republic reignited the legendary banking experience that New Yorkers had missed for years, including providing the only absolutely free coin counting1 machines in all of New York City.

In 2020, we answered the call-for-help from small businesses impacted by the pandemic by originating $680 million in PPP loans to nearly 5,000 local businesses. Our customer-centric, focused approach allows our executive team, store managers and all employees to make an impact in the communities we serve by exceeding customer expectations through a full range of banking offerings.

Today, we are one of the largest Philadelphia-based banks, yet we make decisions locally, and we make them quickly. We prioritize getting to know YOU as more than just a customer, so that we can anticipate and meet all of your banking needs.

We offer “big bank” benefits with a small town feel.

Republic Bank has created a major commercial and retail bank with a distinct brand, focused on fanatical customer service. We continue to focus on innovation, customer satisfaction, brand-building, and technology, while creating shareholder value. Republic Bank provides customers with an unmatched banking experience across every channel, whether in-store, online, on our app or over the phone.

We are different from the other banks—when we say “convenient” we really mean it. We offer premier conveniences that many other banks do not, such as:

  • Unmatched Service
  • Absolutely FREE Personal Checking
  • FREE Coin Counting1
  • ATM/Debit Cards “On The Spot”
  • Fee-FREE ATM anywhere you see Allpoint2
  • Bank Your Way: in-store, online or mobile
