KENOSHA (AP) -- Hard Rock International wants to develop and manage a proposed Menominee Indian casino in Kenosha if the project gets the green light.
Hard Rock and tribe officials held a news conference at the proposed site, the former Dairyland Greyhound park, on Thursday.
Menominee tribal chairman Craig Corn says bringing the Hard Rock brand to the project elevates the excitement about the proposed off-reservation casino.
The Menominee tribe is trying to persuade Gov. Scott Walker to approve the casino. Walker says the approval hinges on a consensus from Wisconsin's other tribes, among other things. The Ho-Chunk Nation and the Forest County Potawatomi, which already operate casinos, have objected to the proposal.
The Seminole tribe in Florida purchased the Hard Rock corporation in 2007. It owns 179 venues in 57 countries, including 8 casinos.
