The 7,200-square-foot office is located on a 1.85-acre site in Lebanon, Tennessee.

"This is a vibrant market, and since establishing our office here in 2007, we have seen significant growth in the community," Joel Porter, chairman of the bank's board of directors, said in a statement released by BankTennessee.

The bank also has retail banking offices in Atoka, Collierville, Downtown Memphis, East Memphis, Germantown and Ripley.

The bank reported $241.8 million in loans and other assets on March 31, compared to $259.9 million a year earlier, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. data shows.
