“As a long time client of the newly acquired Merchants Bank, I have become accustomed to excellent service and commitment from my bankers. My experience during this pandemic has been no different. In the early stages of COVID-19, I decided to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program for both Franklin Hill Vineyards and our sister company, Social Still, LLC. I reached out to Todd Saab who’s been an important contact for me. Todd immediately responded and together with the staff at Martin’s Creek, facilitated the application process and both entities were given funding. As a local vineyard and winery since 1982 and a rapidly growing distillery and restaurant, we’ve experienced many changes over the years. With the help of Fidelity Bank, we’ve been able to continue our operations and keep over 40 local families employed. My sincere thanks to you and your team. I look forward to a long working relationship with Fidelity Bank.”
