Renovation Reality – Building NEW Restaurants – Swinomish Casino and Lodge


So the first step for Food & Beverage was
the construction of the Sports Bar kitchen.
We then closed down the buffet, and also the
kitchen and then construction began in there
for what currently is the Carvers kitchen,
as well as the food court, Manchu Wok and
Fatburger space.
I think that with Carvers Café and the food
court in as well, we’re able to have the
options for our guest that Two Salmon did
have from the buffet.
So we have our breakfast, lunch, dinner options
out of Carvers.
We have our Asian cuisine from Manchu Wok,
which is similar to a buffet.
And then, also we have our burger restaurant,
which was the number one concept that our
guest wanted to see out of our food court.
Once the construction was starting to end
for Carvers and the food court, then that’s
when we really needed to start our training
for the Carver kitchen, the service staff,
the cooks developing the recipes and the service
and really doing like a mock service with
our team to do that first run on the food
and make sure that it came out great.
We brought in a qualified management team.
All the team member went through intensive
training two weeks prior to the opening.
All the food was cooked, the servers and the
cooks tested the food, served the food and
they’re doing a great job.
The other side for the food court was we had
managers and supervisors that went off to
franchise training to learn from Fatburger
and Manchu Wok to learn from their recipes
and come back and train our staff here and
do the same thing we did in Carvers from there
was to do our mock service to our team members
and to some of our guest.
We brought the franchise trainers in from
the concepts.
Our management team and the team members were
certified in each and every area and then
we started producing the high quality that
the guest were looking for.
So once the training for our staff for Carvers,
Fatburger, and Manchu Wok wrapped up, then
that’s where things really started to get
real for the team and we really feel like
the opening was a success because our team
did a fantastic job you know opening three
new outlets back to back was a really tough
thing to do but we excuted it and I couldn’t
be more proud of the staff that we have, our
front of the house and back of the house.
You know, everyone did a fantastic job.
So currently with our Sport Bar situation,
we are remodeling in the dining room and that
gives us a chance to offer a new menu so we
are really going through the same process
that we went through with Carvers and our
food court outlets.
Now we are developing a new menu, we’re
training our staff and getting ready to put
out a new menu for you guys in the Sports
Bar that we hope you guys will enjoy!
So we have options for every guest that come
through the door.
We have a great Asian diner, we’ve got hamburgers
from Fatburger, we’ve got family style dining
at Carvers Café, at Center Bar we’ve got
a great place to enjoy a very high quality
drink and a place to be seen and game and
along with the Sports Bar, it’s going to
be a very high quality food and beverage outlet.
