Best Banks for Rebuilding + Business Accounts?



I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for good banks that are good with extending credit to their customers. 


Had Chapter 7 a few years ago (Discharged Jan 2009). Own a small business and maintain a good balance most of the time. 


Right now I'm with Wells Fargo, and they haven't been so great. Only have a secured card, which they haven't converted, and they've denied me for any unsecured. 


I'm in Northern CA if anyone has any local recommendations as well.

Friend of mine owns his own business and had credit issues a couple years back.  He switched his business account from Wells Fargo to Bank of the West and has been much happier ever since.
