Founded in 2006, b1BANK (formerly Business First Bank) has grown from a business-focused bank to a full-service bank that provides customers with technologically driven products and services combined with the personalized service you expect from a community bank. The bank’s strong organic growth, including a recent transformative acquisition of Louisiana-based Pedestal Bancshares, has made b1BANK one of the ten largest banks in Louisiana and the largest bank headquartered in the state’s capitol region.
