Our Story & Foundation
Sunshine Bank first opened its doors in 1954 as 1st Federal Savings and Loan Association, headquartered in Plant City, Florida. After years of steady growth, the bank rebranded and changed its name to Sunshine State Federal Savings and Loan Association. In 2014, the current name of Sunshine Bank was adopted. After converting from the mutual form of organization to the stock form, Sunshine Bancorp, Inc. was formed in 2014 as the holding company for Sunshine Bank. Bank headquarters remains in Plant City. The common stock is traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “SBCP.”
The same foundational principles that started the bank remain today - providing uncompromising service to our customers and offering innovative products and services that truly add value to our customer’s financial needs. As one of the oldest banks in Florida history, we are proud of our heritage and success, and continue to focus on a bright future as we look to build a strong, relationship-based community banking franchise.
Our foundation is based on local, relationship oriented bankers with a passion for our customers and the local communities we serve. Our customers can expect uncompromising service everyday because we believe in conducting business and living by the high standards outlined in our Foundation Booklet.
