I thought in this case, we use operator=* ?

I think the branch/location could simply be added to the name tag.

amenity=bank
operator=Bank of the Philippines
name=Bank of the Philippines Almanza Uno Las Piñas

This is for example how I tag chain restaurants, with the
location/branch appended to the name tag.
