M C Bank has been expanding its presence in Louisiana. It recently opened its first banking center in Covington, which forms part of a new Stirling Properties development along Highway 190.

Furthermore, it intends to open a new banking center in Metairie at the intersection of Veterans and Causeway. To further its expansion efforts, the bank has purchased property on Spring Farm Road in Lafayette, where it plans to construct a banking center and office space in the Acadiana Market.

Established in 1955 in Morgan City, M C Bank initially operated under the name Morgan City Bank & Trust Company. On April 1, 1991, it underwent a merger and rebranding as part of the formation of MC Bancshares, a one-bank holding company. The bank operates nine banking centers and offices across Louisiana, including locations in Amelia and Bayou Vista.
