Cus­tomers looking for a home­town bank with a home­town feel find what they need at United Bank in Cov­ing­ton.

“When you come to United Bank, you feel like you’re walk­ing into some­one’s home in­stead of walk­ing into a cold in­sti­tu­tion,” said Reed Beard, pres­i­dent. “We are al­ways cour­te­ous and re­spect­ful, and we try to go out of our way to of­fer our cus­tomers ser­vice that ex­ceeds their ex­pec­ta­tions. That’s one of our mis­sion state­ments.”

Char­tered in the 1905 as the Bank of Ze­bu­lon in Ze­bu­lon, a small town south of Grif­fin in Pike County, United Bank is a fam­ily-owned, pri­vately held­com­pany with 15 lo­ca­tions through­out Ge­or­gia.

“We are now in our third gen­er­a­tion of own­er­ship and there are still sev­eral of the fam­ily mem­bers who are in­volved in the dayto-day op­er­a­tions of the bank,” said Beard.

In 2007, United Bank opened two lo­ca­tions in Cov­ing­ton. Cov­ing­ton’s main branch is lo­cated just off the Cov­ing­ton square, with a satel­lite lo­ca­tion in­side the Wal-Mart Su­per­center on In­dus­trial Boule­vard.

“In Cov­ing­ton, we are at­tempt­ing to con­tinue the legacy of a true home­town bank where peo­ple know you when you walk in the door and you’re known by your name rather than a num­ber,” Beard said.

United Bank of­fers cus­tomers a va­ri­ety of bank­ing prod­ucts in­clud­ing tra­di­tional check­ing and sav­ings ac­counts, CDs, con­sumers and busi­ness loans, home mortgages and in­vest­ment and trust ser­vices. Beard said, how- ever, they are most proud of the ser­vice they de­liver to their cus­tomers everyday.

“We of­fer spe­cial things to our cus­tomers by giv­ing them ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice,” said Beard. “We try to go above and be­yond our cus­tomer’s ex­pec­ta­tions.”

Op­er­at­ing hours for the main of­fice in Cov­ing­ton are Mon­day – Fri­day, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Satur­day, 9 a.m. – noon. Op­er­at­ing hours for Wal-Mart lo­ca­tion are Mon­day – Fri­day, 10 a.m.
