“Your Hometown Bank Since 1919” – More Than Just a Tagline

History of Growth
Ever since the first deposit was taken in 1919, Citizens Bank & Trust Company of Grainger County (CB&T) has strived to provide fast, personal service with a hometown touch.

We have grown with the County and its residents, achieving these important milestones:

  • September 12, 1967 - Bean Station Branch Opened
  • August 24, 1972 - Blaine Branch Opened
  • October 17, 1988 - Washburn Branch Opened
  • November 1994 - Relocation of Rutledge Location to 8335 Rutledge Pike
  • April 17, 2000 - Cherokee Branch Opened
  • August 2006 - Expansion of Rutledge Location

Experienced & Compassionate Employees
With hundreds of years of combined work experience at CB&T alone, our employees work hard at providing our customers with a full range of desirable banking products and services. (See Products & Services page for more details.)

The employees are also as diligent outside of the workplace. Many of our employees regularly participate in community enrichment and needs-based programs, such as the United Way and the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

Community Ties
CB&T is locally operated in Grainger County, Tennessee. Most of our employees have lived in the County their entire lives. Moreover, important decisions that affect our customers are made by individuals that live and work in the County.

These community ties allow us to identify with our customers. We are interested not only in their banking needs, but also the welfare of their families. We strive for a relationship that develops into a friendship beyond the Bank.

The End Result
Collectively, our history of growth, experienced and compassionate employees, and community ties have helped us to become “Your Hometown Bank Since 1919.”
