Quichet Bistro – high quality F&B
Another very important feature is the integration of a food and beverages offering in the form of a bistro with terrace and lounge called Quichet. The purpose-built brand supplies customers and guests with fresh and regional delicacies from morning till evening. The appealing, modern and cosy atmosphere invites people of all backgrounds to gather. All foods and beverages are locally sourced and thereby support the surrounding community
What about the regular retail-banking business? Of course, this also continues in this context. Much extended opening times from the usual 9 to 5 business hours often seen in the Swiss banking world. The new Raiffeisenbank Sensetal looks after its clients continuously from 7:00 to 19:00. The brief and initial consultation of new and existing clients takes place dynamically, freely in the room, while the scheduled consultations and discussions are held on the upper floors of the building at Bernstrasse 15 in Flamatt.
Unique new concept for retail-banking in Switzerland
In the planning and implementation phase, the overall project manager Bastian Hofacker also acted as coordinator and was significantly involved and responsible for strategic planning, concept development, bid orientation and purchasing policy as well as for budgeting, costing and controlling. In addition, there was close cooperation with the bank in communications and the initial planning and selection of pop-up events for the years 2019-20.
The new branch of Raiffeisenbank Sensetal offers a unique and diverse range of services, which will radiate far beyond the regional location of Flamatt. It is also an example of how sustainability can be created and lived in the banking world by engaging with its surroundings and helping local entrepreneurs grow their small businesses. In a market that is subject to constant change, the product range must grow continuously with the brand and be able to be adapted flexibly. The new bank branch is tailored to current conditions, trends and social issues and enables the individual market segments to be sustainably supported, local entrepreneurship to be promoted and a continuous interest in the Raiffeisen brand to be ensured.
Pioneer locally anchored: the new Raiffeisenbank Sensetal
Raiffeisenbank Sensetal in Flamatt is undoubtedly the bank branch of the future. The reaction of the public and the expected positive operating result will prove the initiators and builders right and inspire other Raiffeisen banks, but also competitors, to similar moods.
