First Community Bank of Batesville said Thursday that it received regulatory approval to become a full-service banking center in Little Rock. 

The move makes First Community Bank's lending center at the corner of Kavanaugh and Cantrell its 20th full-service location. René Julian, former senior vice president for First National Bankers Bank in Little Rock, is community president for the Little Rock region.

"The First Community Bank model is to provide a one-stop-financial center that combines convenience, state-of-the-art products and red carpet service," Julian said in a news release.

The bank offers remote deposit, mobile banking and Internet banking, as well as a "smart" ATM and a drive-through banking lane.

Three restaurant deals part of latest Pulaski County transactions

LEKS LLC, a limited liability company based in Cerritos, Calif., paid $1.14 million last month to acquire the building and property of a Burger King on Maumelle Boulevard near a North Little Rock Wal-Mart Supercenter.

The 2,800 square foot Burger King was built in 2008.

The last appraised value of the building and property was $1.5 million.

Flis Enterprises owns the Burger King, one of 21 that the firm owns in Arkansas. Dominic Flis, president of Flis Enterprises, said the sale-leaseback deal is the fourth he's done with his restaurants this year.

"We continue to be tenants," Flis said. "There's a market out there [for sale-leasebacks]. It's a form of financing for restaurant people."

An attempt to reach Shiingwue Cheng, the managing member of LEKS, was unsuccessful.

The Burger King deal is one of at least three recent restaurant transactions in Pulaski County.


A Saltgrass Steak House restaurant is planned for a parcel near the Bass Pro Shop and the Outlets of Little Rock near Interstate 30 and Interstate 430.
