Cherokee Nation to hire 175 for new Grove casino

GROVE, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma has broken ground here on a $23 million casino — the tribe’s 10th gaming facility.

Scheduled to open in winter 2017, the tribe will hire 175 people to staff the attraction. The 39,000-square-foot complex will house 400 electronic games, table games, a private high-limit poker room, a restaurant, a full-service bar, a live music venue, a dance floor, an event space and an outdoor patio.

“As principal chief, nothing makes me prouder than providing quality jobs for the Cherokee people,” Chief Bill John Baker said in a press release. “Our entertainment division consistently brings to the market the best jobs and the best entertainment options. The jobs created by this venue drive our economy, and the financial success of our businesses is reinvested throughout northeast Oklahoma to provide a better quality of life for the Cherokee people.”
