Garrett says they are currently working on upgrading the exterior of their 1.3 million square foot facility.

They recently finished a new spa and expanded pool area and opened Track 5 in February -- a new country-themed area with games and a dance floor and bar area.

Cherokee Nation and its businesses across Oklahoma had an impact of $2.2 billion over the past year.

Hard Rock employs 1,800 people and brought private investment and growth to the Catoosa area surrounding the property.
