A ceremonial groundbreaking event was held today for the Rock & Brews Casino in Braman. This will be built by is a new partnership between the Kaw Nation and KISS co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.
Plans for a new resort casino to be located in Braman have been announced. The town is just south of the Kansas state border near Interstate Highway 35. The casino will be built on tribal land owned by the Kaw Nation of Oklahoma.
Partnering with the tribe on the project is the restaurant chain, Rock & Brews. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are part of the owners of the brand.
Originally Rock & Brew was going to be a restaurant added to the casino. However, the casino will now take on the Rock & Brew branded theme.
The project will create 1,000 new jobs. They will be both temporary construction jobs and permanent jobs.
It is estimated that construction will take a year to finish.
