    Which banks do you think are the most small business friendly? What features do they offer you?

    If you can find a home town bank within your working range that may be your best and only source of local capital, to grow and expand with.

    I use United community its local and always has the same people working so you get a personal experience. Nothing has to go trough corporate half way around the world. It's the guy across the room. in a world where costumer service is as rare as commen since I appreciate it when I find both together

    If I were you I would definitely read and learn "their" legal banking and finance laws. Then you get to make the demand of the banks to perform and jump through the hoops to appease you. Do not let them tell you what to do. They own nothing but try to control everything.
