Unity Bank opens Parsippany area branch; 1st location in Morris County

Unity Bank recently opened its first full-service branch in Morris County, Unity’s third new retail banking site in the last 10 months.

Leaders from business and government joined Unity and the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the branch, located at 66 N. Beverwyck Road in the Lake Hiawatha section of Parsippany-Troy Hills.

“The township is pleased to welcome Unity Bank to our community,” Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor James Barberio said. “The residents and businesses of Parsippany-Troy Hills continue to need local banking services, even during an age when many financial options are available online. We appreciate Unity’s investment in our community and look forward to a successful future for the bank and the Lake Hiawatha branch for many years to come.”

Unity celebrated the opening by presenting three $500 donations to the Morris County Sheriff’s CrimeStoppers, Lake Hiawatha Fire Department and Parsippany PBA.

“We appreciate the great turnout for our opening from the Parsippany-Troy Hills community,” Unity Bank CEO and President James Hughes said. “Banking services at the branch level are increasingly important to our customers, including homeowners and small businesses. Unity is a community bank that strongly believes in supporting local organizations, and we plan to be an active corporate citizen in Morris County.”

The 3,864-square-foot North Beverwyck Road facility was previously operated as a branch by another bank. The branch, which was fully modernized over the summer, includes six dedicated parking spaces and drive-up banking and ATM services.

Unity’s retail banking presence now includes 21 branches in Bergen, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Ocean, Somerset, Union and Warren counties in New Jersey and Northampton County in Pennsylvania. Unity also recently opened new branches in Fort Lee in Bergen County and Lakewood, which marked the bank’s first site in Ocean County. Unity holds about $2.6 billion in assets and $1.8 billion in deposits.
