Welcoming Banking Environment
Customers are invited to take advantage of the two-lane drive-thru outfitted with remote teller units, which help to improve bank efficiency and customer convenience.
The new banking center incorporates an open-concept method of banking using a two-teller transaction pod, while additional lending offices, an inviting waiting area, a beautiful conference room, and pre-planned expansion space help create a welcoming yet efficient environment.
The conference room features a one-of-a-kind tribute to the History of Warner Robins and Planters First Bank, with a glasswork picture collage.

“I’m proud and excited to help bring a brand new, state-of-the-art banking center to Warner Robins while celebrating 127 years of Planters First Bank history in Middle Georgia,” says Cole Woodroof, Planters First Bank’s Executive Vice President. “Planters First Bank is honored to have been a part of the Warner Robins community since 2016, and we are very excited to see this new facility come to fruition so that we can continue to better serve our customers and community. Without strong support from the Warner Robins community and outstanding leadership from our Regional President, Clay Corbitt and Market President, Kristina Gibbs, this would still be a dream.”
The bank staff is cross-trained to enhance efficiency and create a friendly, engaging experience. This Warner Robins office will make Planters First Bank services more accessible to the marketplace while continuing the bank’s commitment to customer service and success.
When asked about the new location, Clay Corbitt, SVP, Regional President of Houston County and Peach County, had the following to say, “I’m excited to have a prominent location and a new innovative banking center, and I’m reminded that it’s our amazing customers in Houston County that got us to this point. We will offer the same great service that our Warner Robins customers have come to expect. This building is for the customers that have partnered with us to build something that we can all be proud of and also for those that are to come. We strive to be the best bank in Middle Georgia, and it’s our honor that businesses and families trust us with their finances. This is their branch, and we look forward to serving them there!
