PyraMax banks on Hispanic community near Mitchell Street branch

Milwaukee-based PyraMax Bank recently re-opened its location at 1605 W. Mitchell St. on Milwaukee’s south side.

The 4,242-square-foot branch was expanded and now features three drive through lanes, a walk-up ATM, and now features an Internet café and children’s play area. The $2 million project represents the bank’s commitment to serving the growing Hispanic community in the neighborhood, said Karen Murphy, senior vice president of retail banking.

“We want our customers to feel at home when they visit the bank,” she said. “We’ve added a courtyard with lots of green space and created a warm color scheme with rich earth tones and terra cotta.”

More importantly, a large portion of the staff that works at PyraMax’s Mitchell Street branch is bilingual.

The Mitchell Street branch has served as a bank for more than 95 years. Before PyraMax operated a branch there, the building was the corporate office of Mitchell Savings Bank.
