After graduating from Wharton, The University of Pennsylvania's school of business, Hoeflich dreamed of working at the Philadelphia National Bank. After he was hired, he spent the next twenty-five years working at the Philadelphia National Bank (PNB); Only taking an intermission during World War II to serve as a member of the Airtransport Command.[ISI 1] Hoeflich became vice president of Philadelphia National Bank in 1951, and served this position until he left to become president of Souderton Bank in 1962.

Mr. Hoeflich believed in growing and supporting local businesses such as the Crawford Broadcasting Company of Philadelphia, whose owner, Donald B. Crawford, came to the bank in a final attempt to secure a loan to save his radio stations.
