Maria Kanellis | Costas Mediterranean

“We built our restaurant in 1990,” said Maria Kanellis, owner of Costas Mediterranean Grille, “and UnionState Bank gave us the loan to build it.”

USB also financed the building of Costas second location in 2005. Today, she added, her company depends on USB for a host of banking services including checking, credit cards, and credit card processing.

“When you’re working with USB, it’s a one-to-one relationship. It feels like family,” Kanellis said, “it’s a family bank and they understand families.”

They also understand how to help families run small businesses. “We tell them what we need,” she said, “they listen, helps us out, and really know what we’re going through.”

“They are people who understand you,” Kanellis emphasized, “I can’t imagine better people to do business with, or a better bank. They have always been there for us.”
