“The whole team at Sabal Palm Bank truly cares about their customers and it’s important to support local businesses–what better way than to bank locally!” Alisa Bennett; co-owner Bennett Contracting.
Bennett Contracting is a full-service excavation and underground utility contractor based in Bradenton, Florida. Jason Bennett started the business out of the back of his pick-up truck back in 2000 when he was 28-years-old. His first employee at Bennett Contracting was his father, Big Jake, who retired quite a few years ago. Big Jake is in his 80’s now but he sometimes still comes to the shop and helps out with recycled materials.
Bennett Contracting was named one of the Top 50 Contractors in the region in 2011 by the Gulf Coast Business Observer. Additionally, they are especially proud to have been named the Safety Award Winner and one of just 12 National Finalists (among 75,000+ companies) for Equipment World Magazine’s 2012 Contractor of the Year Award.
Jason and Alisa Bennett have banked with Sabal Palm Bank since the beginning of the bank, over 12 years ago. In 2015 Sabal Palm Bank helped Bennett Contracting build their new facility – a 6,000 SF office/warehouse. Alisa Bennett says, “What a long way from having the bed of a pick-up as our office!”
One of their favorite features of the bank is the remote capture system so they don’t have to drive to the bank to deposit checks-they can do it right from the convenience of their office. When Alisa does visit the bank, one of her favorite employees at Sabal Palm is Stephen. “He is such a funny, positive person. Anytime I get the chance to speak with him on the phone or have him assist me when I visit the bank, I leave smiling! The whole team at Sabal Palm Bank truly cares about their customers and it’s important to support local businesses – what better way than to bank locally!”
