Bank Forward Breaks Ground on Fargo Expansion

“This is a historic day in the rich tradition of our organization,” Bank Forward President Tom Watson says of the April 30, 2018 groundbreaking ceremony held to kickoff construction of the new location in Fargo. Located at 37th Avenue South and Veterans Boulevard in Southwest Fargo, the new location will house both Bank Forward and Insure Forward.

“It’s a prominent location on Veterans Boulevard, south of Costco and the new Sanford hospital, and across the street from the West Fargo Sheyenne High School,” Watson says. “The new location allows us to be a part of an expanding community and offers our customers traveling from out of town a convenient location to find.”

Bank Forward and Insure Forward will continue serving customers in the current Fargo location, 1202 28th Street South in Fargo, until the new branch is complete in 2019.

“We are truly a community bank with hometown values,” CEO Mark Brown says. “We started in Hannaford, North Dakota in 1927 and for over 90 years we have prided ourselves on being active, positive members of the communities we serve. We are excited to better serve the people in the FM area with our new location!”

Bank Forward operates under one charter in thirteen communities in North Dakota and Minnesota. With thirteen bank offices, eleven insurance agencies and two tax offices, Bank Forward offers a complete line of personal and commercial financial, insurance and tax services. Learn more at
