Fort Walton Beach, Fla. (Aug. 15, 2022) – Eglin Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce it will start developing a property located on the corner of Tiger Lake Drive and Highway 98 in Gulf Breeze. The short-term plan is to install two drive-thru ATM/Video Tellers in 2023. This will look similar to the drive-thrus currently being constructed near Niceville High School as well as the site at Jonquil Avenue NW and Mary Esther Cutoff NW in Fort Walton Beach, and the recently-announced location in DeFuniak Springs. Construction of a full-service branch in Gulf Breeze is expected to begin in 2024. La Macchia Group is the design/build firm for the Gulf Breeze and DeFuniak Springs locations as well as the upcoming Freeport Branch, the upcoming Pace Branch, and the Operations Center.
“The Credit Union is expanding our footprint to provide convenient and affordable products and services, and financial wellness to a growing membership,” Eglin Federal Credit Union President/CEO Jerry Williams said. “We opened the Navarre Branch in 2007, the Pace Branch is under construction, and we are looking forward to adding Gulf Breeze as a third location in Santa Rosa County for members.”
Members will have the ability to speak with a live teller over two-way video during our regular business hours. Video Teller ITMs also operate as ATMs 24/7 using an EFCU ATM or Debit card. Additional drive-thru Video Teller ITMs are located at most of our branches. Find other nearby surcharge-free ATMs at eglinfcu.org/locations/.
VP Membership and Community Development Neko Stubblefield added, “Membership is now open to those who live, work, worship, attend school and volunteer in specific geographic locations within Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties, Florida and Escambia County, Alabama. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Santa Rosa County residents and businesses as well as forming partnerships with nearby communities.”
