New Legends Resort & Casino Office Opens as Community Resource
Cherokee Nation Businesses (CNB), the operator behind the proposed $225 million resort destination, Legends Resort & Casino Arkansas, has opened a new Legends office in the heart of downtown Russellville, Arkansas. The facility is a resource for residents of Pope County who are eager to learn more about CNB’s development project.
“Establishing an office that welcomes guests is part of our long-standing commitment to be a dedicated community partner in Pope County,” said Cherokee Nation Businesses CEO Chuck Garrett. “This is the open-door resource the people of Pope County deserve.”
Located at 116 S. Commerce Avenue, the office is just minutes away from the Pope County Courthouse and Russellville City Hall. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. during Russellville’s popular Friday Night Art Crawls. Appointments are not necessary.
Residents can view renderings of the proposed development and learn about project highlights, which include estimated $5+ billion in total economic impact it will bring to Pope County in the first 10 years alone. Visitors can also inquire about sponsorships for local groups and events, and submit resumes and learn about future employment opportunities. The development is projected to bring more than 1,000 new jobs to the community.
In addition to being a helpful source of information for residents, Garrett said the office will work with local businesses and service providers as part of Legends Resort & Casino’s promise to source locally. CNB has already purchased more than $83 million in goods and services from local Arkansas vendors in the past 10 years alone.
“We have entered into a very clear agreement with Pope County about the way we will conduct business here in the community,” explained Garrett. “It’s a promise we are proud of.”
With 30 years of experience in the gaming and hospitality industry and a track record of no facility closures or layoffs, CNB is a proven entertainment powerhouse known for bringing long-term success to the communities in which it operates.
