UT Federal Credit Union Breaks Ground on Branch in Blount County

KNOXVILLE, TENN. - July 25, 2023 - UT Federal Credit Union (UTFCU) reached a major milestone on Tuesday, July 25, as it broke ground on its Springbrook Farm Branch in Alcoa, Tennessee. This new branch will be the eighth branch location for UTFCU, and the first branch in Blount County. The branch is expected to open mid-2024.

“We exist as a credit union to serve our members and the community,” said UTFCU President/CEO Debbie H. Jones, CPA. “We want to meet our members where they are, and we have a large membership base that lives in Blount County. We look forward to serving our existing members, as well as new members, in this community.” Jones added, “Membership with UTFCU is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, conducts business, or attends school in Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, and Union Counties.”

This project has been many years in the making and officially launched when UTFCU secured a building lot in Springbrook Farm in Alcoa, a master planned “City Center” development consisting of a retail lifestyle center, multiple residential areas, commercial office space, hotels, conference center, and more.

The new branch will provide a lobby/hospitality area, community room, multiple financial service offices, drive-thru Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs), a night deposit, and a coin counter for member use.
