Why should I consider Chesapeake Bank instead of a big bank?

One reason – local decision-making. We’re part of this community and we want you to succeed. So we go beyond the numbers to get the real story before making any decisions on loans. Another reason – you’ll have your own business officer, so you’ll always be helped by someone who knows you and your business.

You’re local – how does that help me with my day-to-day operations?

Here’s a great example – our card processing services. If you take credit or debit cards, you know how important it is to stay up and running at all times. With Chesapeake Bank card services, if your equipment goes down, we’re there, on-site, as soon as possible. Another example is with our loans. Since we have local decision making, our approval process is quicker than you’ll find with other financial institutions.
