Investing in Our Community

American Bank announced construction of two new branches in August, furthering our commitment to the community and providing convenience enhanced by state-of-the-art facilities and technology. Design of the new branches will incorporate specific facades to pay homage to the iconic Round Bank located in Bellmead off I-35, which has proudly stood as a Waco landmark since 1979.

Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs)

Time. It’s what we all need more of and we're giving it back to you! Our Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) are a big part of the our construction plans and they'll be opening very soon at the Bellmead location. Additional ITMs will open at the Woodway branch at the same time our new branch opens (later this year). We are excited to bring the Face-to-Face Banking we’re known for to our drive thru lines.

  • On average, the time to process a transaction will decrease by about 80%.
  • With a teller on the screen dedicated to you - and you alone - complete transactions, you'll see increased accuracy and efficiency.
  • You'll have the undivided attention of the teller on your ITM screen - face-to-face banking!
  • ITMs are paperless so you won't have to fill out deposit or withdrawal slips anymore.

Woodway Branch - NOW OPEN - Drive-Thru, ITM and ATM Service Available

Work began in August 2019 at the site of the new Woodway location with demolition of the existing Express Drive-Thru. Open in July 2020, the new Woodway branch offers customers a full-service, modern, and convenient branch directly off Highway 6. 

Though we can't share the Woodway lobby with customers just yet, beginning Monday, July 20, the following are available at the new location:

  • Two dedicated Commercial Lanes
  • Three Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) - if you're not quite sure how to use this technology, our Ambassadors will be on site to help!
  • 24-Hour ATM (located in front of the building)

You can enter from either the front or back of the branch - keep an eye out for directional signage. We look forward to seeing you Face to Face very soon!

Bellmead Branch - NOW OPEN

Plans were announced in August 2019 to build a new, state-of-the-art bank located in Bellmead on the site of of the current Round Bank. This is a two-phase project and we are excited that the new Drive-Thru area - featuring Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) - is NOW OPEN. Dedicated Commercial Lanes are also available at the temporary branch. Construction of the new building is expected to take approximately nine months, with opening slated for Summer 2021. This tangible investment demonstrates American Bank’s commitment to Bellmead and the northern part of McLennan County and ensures the bank can deliver banking services to the area for years to come. 

Since 1979, the “Round Bank” has been an iconic fixture and, in 2018, the branch was immortalized in the Robert Redford movie The Old Man and the Gun. The new design will pay homage to the Round Bank’s famous architecture while providing a state-of-the-art facility to serve our community. Construction of new Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) began last fall - slated to be complete in Spring 2020 - with work on the new building to follow thereafter. All bank services will remain available at our Bellmead location throughout the construction process.  

This is an exciting time for both the Waco community and American Bank. The opening of two new locations – coming on the heels of significant expansion of our Downtown Waco branch – is an extension of our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers both today and in the future. We look forward to elevating the banking experience for our customers. Dana R. Hassell, President and CEO
