First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union held a grand opening last week to launch its newest branch location.

Built in Emmaus on the site of a former Wendy’s fast food restaurant, the 2,800-square-foot financial center is the credit union’s eighth location.

The Chestnut Street branch features a financial wellness center, a café with free coffee, three interactive transaction machines and a drive-up window.

It is the fourth and largest First Commonwealth branch to incorporate the credit union’s new “social banking model,” which provides conversation spaces where customers can meet with financial wellness coaches.

It also is is First Commonwealth’s first branch in Emmaus.

The credit union has been expanding in the Lehigh Valley since 2017. It recently began construction on a new $20 million headquarters in Lower Macungie Township, which will replace its existing headquarters in Hanover Township, Northampton County.
