Blue FCU to increase its investment in the Cheyenne Community
CHEYENNE, Wyo., (October 31, 2018) - Blue Federal Credit Union started in Cheyenne 67 years ago as a small credit union on Francis E. Warren Air Force Base. Today, we’re the largest credit union at $1 billion based in the state of Wyoming. We are excited to announce Blue’s Corporate Headquarters will be built right here in the heart of Cheyenne. Blue’s Board of Directors and executive leadership team have been planning the announcement for several months as the land acquisition gained momentum in early 2018.
WHO: Blue Federal Credit Union
WHAT: Blue executives will formally announce Corporate Headquarters plan
WHEN: 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, November 6, 2018
WHERE: Cole Shopping Center (Pershing & Converse Avenue) Cheyenne, WY
Blue’s commitment to Cheyenne includes a passion for revitalization. The Cole Shopping Center was a priority in our search for our corporate headquarters. The project is slated to break ground in mid-2019. Blue’s corporate headquarters building will house approximately 170 employees with the capacity to house more than 400 as we continue to grow. The new facility will be designed ‘campus style’ to include our corporate headquarters building, a new Blue FCU Branch, as well as community and retail space. Open outdoor space and community facilities will be incorporated into the plan. The Cole Shopping Center building (SW corner) will be remodeled for retail space that could include eateries and a variety of other retail businesses.

About Blue Federal Credit Union
Blue Federal Credit Union serves nearly 80,000 members in Colorado and Wyoming communities, and around the world. We’re part of a nationwide CO-OP network of credit unions that gives our members access to 5,000 shared branch locations across the U.S.—on par with major banks—as well as 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs. As a memberowned, not-for-profit cooperative, we return company profits to our members and communities, rather than to outside investors. We genuinely exist to serve, and it’s an honor and a delight to have our actual job be Doing Good: helping people succeed financially and in life, and strengthening the communities where we work and live. Blue formed in 2016, when Warren Federal Credit Union (based in Wyoming and chartered in 1951) and Community Financial Credit Union (based in Colorado and chartered in 1956) decided to join forces and create a stronger-together financial institution serving more of the Rocky Mountain Front Range.
