Restaurants create more hospitality jobs in Vegas

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

A popular new restaurant is expanding and creating more hospitality jobs in Vegas.

Wahlburgers, the burger chain founded by brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg, now has a three restaurant franchise agreement with Vegas American Hospitality Inc, successful operators in Las Vegas, Nevada and nationwide.

Wahlburgers will debut in Las Vegas in early 2015 with the opening of its first restaurant at a location soon to be disclosed. Two others will follow within the next five years.

The Las Vegas restaurants are planned to be over 4,400 square feet with sizable outdoor patios and offer all the signature characteristics of the flagship restaurant in Hingham, Massachusetts, including full-serve and quick-serve dining options, take-out and a full bar.

“My brothers and I have been committed to doing things right with high standards of quality from the beginning. We are glad to have found partners who will uphold our values and create something really special for Las Vegas residents and people from all over the world who visit this incredible destination,” said co-founder and executive chef Paul Wahlberg.

“We are pleased to be taking this important step in our expansion with a proven partner in Las Vegas,” said Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “Over coming months, we look forward to taking further steps toward building relationships that will establish Wahlburgers as one of America’s great restaurant brands.”

In anticipation of securing additional deals in the United States by year’s end, Vanzura and his team are in the process of building systems and infrastructure to support growth.

New golf club creates hospitality jobs in Vegas

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas will celebrate a big reopening in October and will create more hospitality jobs in Vegas.

The club had a restoration guided by original course designer Jack Nicklaus.

Each hole offers views of a 320-acre lake, the focal point of Lake Las Vegas.

It includes five holes stretching along a mile and a half of shoreline and the 200-yard, par-3 eighth hole, which showcases a peninsula jutting out into Lake Las Vegas.

The 32,000-square-foot clubhouse will feature a full golf shop, as well as casual and fine dining. The club will also offer relaxation on a private white-sand beach, paddle boarding, and access to the La Contessa yacht. Concerts will be held on select nights, turning Reflection Bay into a beachside venue.

Reflection Bay is now under the ownership of Paulson & Co., which purchased the course—and nearly 1,000 additional acres of Lake Las Vegas land. The company’s first order of business was rejuvenating Reflection Bay, the 7,184-yard, par-72 course. Century Golf Partners has taken the lead in the restoration, with guidance from the Golden Bear and the Nicklaus Design team.

“The revitalization of Reflection Bay is a significant step in the recovery of Lake Las Vegas as the luxury new home and resort destination in Henderson,” said Patrick Parker, division president for Raintree Investment Corp., exclusive agent for Paulson & Co. “This fall, we are celebrating the restoration of Reflection Bay and the opening of the new road to Lake Las Vegas, Galleria Parkway.”

“This course was arguably the most beautiful in Vegas and will be again,” said Jeff Levine, senior vice president of Century Golf Partners. “The course is already green, a welcome sight to residents. We’re on track to start booking tee times for as early as October 2014.”
