More Changes at Foxwoods Resort Casino
June 03, 2016
Foxwoods® Resort Casino today unveiled plans for a game-changing 2016 property
development and expansion. The Northeast's premier resort destination announced
it will enhance its guest experience by adding four exclusive restaurants from
world renowned chef and Food Network legend Guy Fieri, "Iron Chef" Cat Cora and
celebrity television personality star, Richard Rawlings of "Fast N' Loud."
Foxwoods will also welcome the exciting pop culture restaurant favorite, Sugar
Factory American Brasserie.
Scheduled to open this fall, the four additions will enrich Foxwoods' already
robust lineup of offerings, continuing the resort's ability to satisfy guests in
unexpected ways while offering something for every taste and budget. Setting a
new standard for resort experiences beyond traditional gaming, this major move
reinforces Foxwoods as the go-to resort destination for unparalleled food, drink
"We're extremely excited about this latest venture, as it proves how Foxwoods is
consistently leading the charge in evolving the resort experience by putting
guests first and meeting their ever-changing wants and needs," said Felix
Rappaport, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. "In today's market,
consumers are looking beyond the traditional ‘dinner and a show' model, and
we're upping the ante to give them a fully comprehensive experience that
includes creative food menus, inventive cocktails, pop culture and live music –
or ‘eatertainment' as we like to call it – all in one place."
Foxwoods made the announcement today as part of the Best Buddies Tom Brady
Football Challenge at Harvard Stadium in Allston, Mass. where the property
presented Best Buddies Chairman and Founder Anthony K. Shriver with a $75,000
donation on its behalf. Rappaport and other Foxwoods executives were joined
during the Foxwoods Halftime Show by Guy Fieri, Richard Rawlings and Melanie
"Mel B." Brown of The Spice Girls, who appeared on behalf of Sugar Factory. The
event also featured Cat Cora, who appeared in a pre-taped welcome video at the
onset of the announcement.
"We are determined to create new, exhilarating experiences that are completely
unique to the region and exceed all expectations," said Jason Guyot, Vice
President of Resort Operations and Development at Foxwoods Resort Casino. "This
is the first of many new amenities coming to Foxwoods as we solidify ourselves
as the premier resort destination in the Northeast."
Foxwoods will share updates on restaurant events, opening dates and other
development news throughout the summer.
