Economic Development Committee Opens New Business

A new Hard Rock Café will open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa within three months.

The 17,500 square foot café will be built on the existing casino complex replace and expanding the space occupied by Floyd’s Restaurant and Nightclub. Employees of Floyd’s will be retained and a few dozen more service jobs will be added.

“this is a win-win for the casino, the workers, Tampa citizens and visitors who will have one more generic chain to eat and rink at” said Ken Nogin of the Greater Tampa Bay Chamber Partnership.

“By giving financial incentives and waivers we are generating dozens of jobs in the service industry for the region. UST graduates in architecture, business and even engineering now can have jobs as servers at the Hard Rock” he added.

UST grad Harold Harper was not as enthusiastic :I’m walking to Atlanta, I heard they have real jobs there.”
