Last week marked the 3 month anniversary of Hollywood Casino’s Grand Opening while earlier in the month of August, they surpassed one million visitors. “Since opening day we have seen just over 1.1 million visitors”, Richard St. Jean, General Manager at Hollywood Casino Toledo said.
Hollywood Casino isn’t the only one benefiting from these visitors. Local businesses such as Moe’s Place in downtown Rossford have seen a definite uptick in business since the opening 3 months ago. Joe Haddad, Owner of Moe’s Place said that when he sees new faces in his restaurant he asks they if they’ve been to the casino and the majority of the time they are either on their way, or just coming from there. “They are usually stopping in here for a quick bite to eat on their way home or before they head to the casino.” He also says that when he asks people where they are from it seems like Northwest Ohio is the main answer. “I’ve had a few people in from Youngstown and a couple from Detroit that were told to stop here by a friend, but most people I talk to are from surrounding cities like Findlay and Swanton.”
Executives at Hollywood Casino are excited about what they have seen so far and look forward to seeing how the rest of the year turns out.
