We are pleased to announce that two Local First members teamed up for a new exciting opportunity!  Pinnacle Bank and Danzeisen Dairy recently announced the closing of financing related to a new bottling facility for Danzeisen Dairy.  The facility is located in Southwest Phoenix less than two miles from the Danzeisen Dairy farm.  The dairy has been in operation for over 50 years.  The new facility will allow Danzeisen to bottle and sell their milk production.  Danzeisen’s plans are to package their product in glass bottles and to distribute through grocers in Arizona.  They anticipate that the bottling facility will be active towards the end of this year when improvements are complete.  

“Local First Arizona’s mission to promote and support a sustainable Arizona economy is something that resonates with us” said owner Kevin Danzeisen of Danzeisen Dairy.  “This is the community where we’ve chosen to raise our children and we want them to have a strong local economy for generations to come.  These values are shared by Pinnacle Bank and we’re thankful for the opportunity they’ve given us to strengthen our presence in this community.”  

“We are grateful for the introduction to Danzeisen Dairy through Local First.  The opportunity to provide financing for a local, family owned and operated business made great sense for our community bank,” said Jared Shintaku of Pinnacle Bank.

Just another example of how local banks and credit unions are the ones investing in Arizona! If you are in need of a loan or want to move your savings to a local bank, consider making the switch today.
