Central Federal Corp. announces new locations

FAIRLAWN — CFBank announces its expansion into Cleveland along with enhanced services for its Fairlawn customers.

Subject to regulatory approval, Central Federal Corp. (CFC), the parent holding company of CFBank, expects to finalize the sale of its Fairlawn office building this month, which will clear the way to allow CFBank to upgrade its services available for its Fairlawn customers and in addition establish a banking presence in the Cleveland market. CFBank expects to open an office in Cleveland in January located in the Chagrin Boulevard area, according to company officials.

In conjunction with the sale of the Fairlawn office building, CFBank will relocate its main office branch into a banking office approximately 200 yards away from its current location. This new branch provides drive-through banking capabilities, along with a drive-up ATM.

“We are extremely excited about this unique opportunity to enhance the level of services for our Fairlawn customers while at the same time entering the Cleveland marketplace,” said Tim O’Dell, CEO of CFBank and CFC.
