The Check City Story

The Rawle family began in the restaurant business. It was in 1986 that they decided to move into the finance sector and open the first Check City store in Virginia.

With everything they knew about good business from their years owning and managing restaurants, they decided to provide that same complete care and friendly customer service in the financial industry.

Check City started as a simple check cashing store with only 10 employees. Today it has grown into a thriving financial institution, offering many types of financial services to states across the nation.
