Option 1 Credit Union's new name, Adventure Credit Union, became effective June 6, 2016. Since 1936 we have been helping people with their dreams, their banking, and their money. At Adventure, have a passion for improving the banking experience. Somewhere along the line, banking based on individuality gave way to bigger and less personal. In every sense it became a commodity – a bland version provided by our competitors rather than a true financial solution. Here, things are different. At Adventure, we offer a higher value, locally blended with technology, convenience and personal service. It is based on solving members’ financial problems rather than just selling them a product off the shelf. It is looking at the way we do business from the member’s point of view, embracing new delivery channels to enhance the member experience and providing employees the tools to make decisions more quickly. We call this unique way of conducting business … Michigan Craft Banking.

Kentwood Ground Breaking

Adventure Credit Union hosted a formal ground breaking ceremony on the new Kentwood Branch office on December 6, 2016.  Adventure is relocating the current branch at 6750 Kalamazoo Avenue SE to 6672 Crossings Drive SE. 

The new 2,800 square foot stand-alone branch is located less than a quarter mile north and across the street from Adventure’s current location. The new branch will be slightly larger than the current location and provide additional member convenience and easy access with drive-thru services with several options including a drive-up ATM and a drive-up ITM (Interactive Teller Machine).  An ITM is a video enhanced ATM which provides a personal experience blended with ATM functionality. 

Inside, the branch will offer a self-serve Kiosk; digital displays; light box display; and an additional ITM.  Personal financial services will be provided by a team of highly trained Adventure staff. 

“As one of the fastest growing credit unions in the state, Adventure is continuously looking for innovative ways to create a positive member experience.  We are excited to utilize the latest technologies in the industry at our newly expanded location in the Kentwood M6 corridor.” said Steve Bush, Adventure Credit Union President & CEO.

Adventure partnered with Orion Construction on the project and expects to complete the new branch in the spring 2017.
