Envision Credit Union announces merger with Flowers Foods Employees Credit Union
Together they will provide additional programs and services to members
TALLAHASSEE, FL (September 20, 2021) — Flowers Employees Credit League has recently announced that they will be merging with Envision Credit Union (Envision), a financial institution servicing the North Florida and South Georgia regions. Headquartered in Thomasville, Ga., the Flowers Employees Credit League has served as the direct credit union for employees of all Flowers Foods brands, such as Nature’s Own, Wonder, Mrs. Freshley’s, and TastyKake. This merger of the two credit unions will allow Envision to expand its national footprint while also providing Flowers’ members with increased convenience, competitive pricing, and more services than previously available – such as debit and credit cards, online and mobile banking, home loans, and checking accounts.
“We are proud to come together with the Flowers Employees Credit League to expand both organizations’ impact and provide additional benefits to their members,” said Darryl G. Worrell, President and CEO of Envision Credit Union. “At Envision, we are dedicated to supporting community initiatives and appreciate that Flowers Foods shares similar values. In the past, Flowers Foods has employed over 600 U.S. Veterans and donated more than $10 million in products to Feeding America. We look forward to seeing how this merger will allow us to continue working together to do good in the communities we serve.”
Based in Tallahassee, Fla., Envision has been in business for more than 60 years, with $718 million in assets and members in all 50 states. On October 1, the Flowers Employees Credit League will officially merge with Envision and be renamed “Flowers Employees Financial Services.” On February 1, current members will receive a new member number and can begin utilizing all of Envision’s services at their Hansel Street location in Thomasville. The former Flowers branch will remain open as an office for their employees.
“The Flowers Employees Credit League remains committed to providing the highest quality of services to our members, who are all valued current and former employees of the Flowers Foods company,” said Dan Stone, Chairman of the Flowers Employees Credit League. “Our merger with Envision Credit Union allows us to act as an even better resource, providing a broader range of financial services to our members without losing the identity that they know and love.”
