Both will develop and curate additional menu and restaurant choices for casino hotel guests.

Hard Rock International (HRI) has teamed up with Major Food Group (MFG) to offer Hard Rock guests additional dining options.

The duo will work to create and curate dining options for HRI’s hotel and casino locations worldwide.

HRI said that the partnership “builds upon the ongoing collaborative efforts between the two world-renowned hospitality brands." The two recently worked together to debut the Carbone residency at Cipresso at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.

Under the terms of the deal, MFG will function in an advisory role in developing and curating new food and beverage choices for select HRI locations and serve as a support for restaurant concepts at HRI’s property development projects.

The duo will implement the new cuisine at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

MFG Co-Owner Jeff Zalaznick described the partnership as a chance for the company to offer its expertise and give guests access to quality dining.

He commented, "This is a truly unique opportunity to bring MFG's deep expertise and innovation together with a hotel and casino leader to provide incredible food and beverage experiences for Hard Rock guests at locations both here and abroad."

HRI Chairman and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen further discussed its collaboration with MFG by saying, "We always strive to provide our guests with memorable dining experiences, so we could think of no better partner to take things to new levels at these properties than the team at Major Food Group.

"We look forward to a terrific collaboration and bringing exciting new options to our guests."
