BayFirst National Bank opens full-service center, in Sarasota (PHOTOS)

BayFirst National Bank celebrated the opening of its 11th full-service banking center, becoming the first full-service financial institution to operate in the Newtown community, in North Sarasota, where it previously operated a loan production office and financial resource center.

The opening comes six months after BayFirst purchased the building it had been renting, since 2022, for its loan production office and financial resource center. As a full-service location, the banking center will expand its offerings adding personal and business banking products and services – including deposit accounts – to those previously offered by the LPO, which included commercial, residential and consumer loans, financial education programs and a no-fee ATM.

The new BayFirst banking center is located at 1782 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Sarasota.

BayFirst National Bank, the principal subsidiary of BayFirst Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: BAFN), operates eleven banking centers in the Tampa Bay area and is headquartered in St. Petersburg.
