This digital-led expansion makes sense for PNC in the Houston market, as we know more than half of our deposits today come via non-teller channels -ATM and mobile banking,” said Julie Sudduth, PNC regional president for Houston. “With the addition of the Timewise ATM locations, we have created easy and convenient options for our digital customers in the Houston market to access their cash without incurring an ATM surcharge fee.
HOUSTON, July 18, 2019 – PNC Bank, N.A., announced today it has teamed up with Houston-based Cardtronics, Inc., to introduce PNC-branded ATMs in more than 209 Timewise Food Stores across the Houston area. As part of PNC’s expansion nationwide as a digital bank, the Cardtronics/Timewise ATMs offer PNC customers surcharge-free and convenient access to cash. In addition, PNC plans to open several solutions centers in the Houston area, beginning in late 2019.
The PNC-branded ATMs, which are owned and operated by Cardtronics, are an extension of the network of surcharge-free ATMs available to PNC cardholders. In addition to cash withdrawals, PNC customers may use these ATMs to transfer money and check balances on their PNC checking and savings accounts. Customers can use the ATM/Branch locator on www.pnc.com to locate available PNC ATMs in the Houston market.

PNC launched its national retail expansion in October. It is offering an array of digital banking capabilities on a nationwide basis including PNC Virtual Wallet and the new PNC High Yield Savings account available to new customers who reside beyond PNC’s traditional market of 19-states and Washington, D.C.
Last year, PNC formally expanded its regional leadership model in the Houston market to support the presence of several lines of business already serving the market, including Corporate Banking, PNC’s Energy Group, PNC Business Credit and the Diversified Industries Group, as well as new employees in Retail Lending, Audit, Risk, and Technology and Operations.
Cardtronics, the exclusive provider of ATM services for Timewise Food Stores, owns and operates the newly-added ATMs.
“By placing its brand on over 200 ATMs across Houston, PNC is expeditiously building powerful brand awareness. Powered by Cardtronics, the newly branded ATMs will efficiently deliver a great customer experience that supports the bank’s new market presence,” said Brian Bailey, Cardtronics EVP and Managing Director, North America.
