When Ashley and I got married, we knew we wanted to start our own business. I’ve grown up in Norman, and the two of us met at OU so we loved Campus Corner and wanted to open a candy store here.

We started making chocolate in our home’s little kitchen. After much trial and error, and guidance from family and friends, Apple Tree Chocolate was ready to open. And just like in our kitchen, we make all of our chocolate homemade.

The help Republic has given us while starting our business is unbelievable. We know we have banking experts whose doors are always open. They’re available for us to call for advice—not only about money—but it can simply be about doing good business.

We feel welcome every time we walk in the bank. It’s like walking through the doors of a friend. They know our names.

We love our bank!
