CASINO ARIZONA OPENS NEW COFFEE OUTLET AS PART OF RENOVATION
Coffee Station and Deli Counter Opened to Guests on Jan. 2
SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Ariz. (Jan. 10, 2013) Casino Arizona, an enterprise of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, unveiled the latest installment of its renovation project, a coffee and deli-style bar called, Coffee Station. The new Coffee Station officially opened on Jan. 2 to the delight of java lovers.
“Casino Arizona is continuing to transform for the pleasure of its guests,” said Peter Arceo, senior director of sales and marketing for Casino Arizona. “The Coffee Station allows guests to grab a gourmet coffee to their taste or lunch while staying close to the gaming action. It is truly a convenient, cost effective option for those that don’t want to take time away from the gaming floor.”
Similar to the Coffee Garden located at Casino Arizona sister property, Talking Stick Resort™, the Coffee Station serves a variety of gourmet roasted coffee and hand-selected teas from famed coffee store, Peet’s Coffee & Tea. Baristas will create guests’ favorite espresso and blended drinks, while serving fresh baked cookies, tarts and pastries.
Also, part of the station is a deli lunch counter that offers daily roast beef specials. Prior to the installation of the counter, Casino Arizona had a similar station that rotated throughout the property. At the counter, guests can get $5 freshly carved roast beef sandwiches and chips.
“We had no idea how successful the roast beef station was going to be. It was an idea that we tried out our guests really loved,” said Arceo. “To accommodate its popularity however we had to move it regularly in order to make room for other activities on property. With our new deli counter, we can keep serving our guests in the same place, at the same time.”
The Coffee Station is the latest addition to Casino Arizona’s overall renovation project that included the addition of a 26,000-square-foot Bingo Hall. It is scheduled to end in Spring 2013 with the completion of a new food and beverage outlet called Arizona Grill.
Tucson based, Seaver Franks Architects AIA served as the architect for the renovation, while Kitchell Corporation, is completing construction, which began Dec. 2011.
Located in Scottsdale, Ariz. at the Loop 101 Freeway and McKellips Rd., Casino Arizona is a central landmark within the emerging Talking Stick Cultural and Entertainment Destination (TSCED). Independently owned and operated by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the property offers visitors more than 100,000 square feet devoted to gaming and entertainment.
