In a press conference this morning Happy State Bank Chairman and CEO, J. Pat Hickman announced that  Happy State Bank is adding even more locations.

Happy Bancshares, Inc is planning to purchase and assume operations of the Lubbock-based Centennial Bank, this transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020 (pending on bank regulatory and shareholder approval.)

This acquisition brings Happy State Bank locations to Austin, Boerne, Fredericksburg, Hart, Kerrville, New Braunfels, Post, Slaton and Tulia. Centennial also has locations in two locations where Happy State Bank already has branches, Lubbock and Plainview.

This is exciting news as current customer's will have more locations to choose from. It also gives them locations for the first time in the Texas Hill Country. So on trips through the state, there will be more options and ATM's in more locations that have not had a Happy branch previously.

It is always good news when a local business expands. It brings more options and locations. Happy State Bank is growing rapidly. With this announcement it now brings them to 57 locations in 41 Texas communities.

Here is the map of The Happy Footprint. The gold/maroon Happy logo shows the current Happy branches. The blue shows the two branches in Mobeetie and Wheeler that were announced last week to be joining the Happy Team. The red shows the new "Centennial" locations.

This is an exciting time for Amarillo and Happy customer's in the Panhandle. More choices and locations always is a good thing.
