As fewer account holders make trips to physical branches, some members of the banking industry are experimenting with new branch models that are a fraction of the size of traditional locations.

"These express banking centers are a way of still having a physical presence for consumers but with smaller real estate overhead costs," McBride says.

"Customers don't need a 5,000-square-foot branch every time they go to the bank," Barnhart says.
