Casino chain Kewadin Casinos, owned and operated by the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians, is set to embark on a renovation project at its flagship Kewadin Casino in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The multi-million dollar endeavor aims to modernize the property and enhance the overall guest experience.
“We’re proud to be one of the first casinos in Michigan to open and to be celebrating our 38-year anniversary in 2023. We’ve seen many great changes over those years, and now it’s time for a new look and feel throughout the property that will elevate the guest experience,” said Dana Schlehuber, General Manager of Kewadin Sault, as per The Sault News.
While the specific details of the project have yet to be unveiled, it has been confirmed the renovation will update the casino’s exterior, giving it a sleek and contemporary appearance. The building will undergo a deep transformation, featuring new exterior materials and windows.
To ensure minimal disruption to guests, the renovation will be conducted in phases, allowing the casino to remain open throughout the process. The project is expected to commence in the upcoming summer and conclude in the winter of 2024.
“It’s a good project that helps to update the look of the building. It’s the beginning of, hopefully, even more improvements as we move forward,” stated Allen Kerridge, CEO of Kewadin Casinos, as per the cited source.
Upon completion, Kewadin Casinos plans to continue with further renovations at this location and potentially other properties. However, no additional projects have been announced at this time.
“Our guest experience is of the utmost importance to us, and Kewadin Casinos is revitalizing it with this project as well as several other upgrades at all five Kewadin Casinos,” emphasized Kerridge.
Situated in the region of Upper Michigan, Kewadin Casino offers an array of entertainment options. With over 2,000 slot machines, 26 table games, hotels, dining facilities, and various amenities, it has become a popular destination in Michigan’s eastern and central Upper Peninsula.
