Royal was founded in 1963 as the Bank of King of Prussia, with a goal to serve the local community which at the time was a predominantly farming and residential community considerably less populated than today. Local residents grew fond of the personal service of our bank, referred their friends, and over time the bank grew and expanded.
In 1980, the management of the bank changed with the Tabas family acquiring a majority stake, and shortly thereafter, our bank was renamed Royal Bank of Pennsylvania in recognition of its ever widening service area. Our bank grew with offices in the greater Valley Forge area, Narberth, Philadelphia and Jenkintown. The bank continued to grow over the next few decades, expanding and acquiring other banks along the way. In 2004 our bank again changed names, this time to the present-day Royal Bank America.
Today the Royal brand encompasses thirteen full-service branch offices throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey offering a wide variety of products and services for consumers and business alike. 50 years ago no one could have imagined the significant changes in our region or the variety of banking and technology tools available to today’s banking customers, but “Loyal Royals” will no doubt recognize the personalized service aspects of our business which have remained intact for over half a century.
