  CoreFirst Bank and Trust

CoreFirst Bank & Trust was founded in Topeka, Kan. in 1959 as Commerce Bank & Trust. Over the next five decades, Commerce built an impressive list of customer service "firsts" - all based upon the core philosophy of providing outstanding banking convenience. These included the region's first 24-hour ATMs, first grocery store branches, first extended and weekend hours, and a host of technological innovations, all leading to exemplary customer satisfaction and retention. The bank grew to be the largest in the area.
Over the years, loyal customers in nearby communities throughout the region wanted Commerce's exceptional service. Demand grew for further geographic expansion. However, growth was stymied because another area bank was already using the "Commerce" name. To continue growing to meet customer needs, an "expansion identity" would be needed. Thus, in 2007 the CoreFirst Bank & Trust brand was born.
