Orlando-based CashRepublic Financial LLC expands to Tampa after opening five stores in metro Orlando in roughly a year, according to CEO Alok Prasad.
Through an online platform and brick-and-mortar stores, CashRepublic cashes checks, wires money and provides other financial services for individuals and small businesses without a bank.
After a successful year of expansion in Orlando, CashRepublic will enter the Tampa metro for the first time when it opens its new location at 1821 E. Fowler St. within the next four months, Prasad said.
The Tampa store will be the first step in CashRepublic's hopes to build a statewide presence, with plans for future stores in Jacksonville and Miami as well. That growth supports the creation of retail, finance, marketing and technology jobs in Orlando and beyond.
