Hard Rock Cafe owners would build, manage proposed Kenosha casino

KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - The owners of the famous Hard Rock Café would build and manage the Menominee Indian casino and resort that's being proposed for Kenosha. 

Media reports say the Seminole tribe, which owns the Hard Rock, will enter into a management and development deal for the $800 million project. More details are due out Thursday night. 

The Menominee Tribe, which would own the new casino, has previously offered 25 percent of its gaming revenues with a project manager. 

Governor Scott Walker has the final say on whether the casino gets built, after the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs gave its blessing earlier this year.

The Republican Walker has said that all 10 other Indian tribes in Wisconsin would have to approve it, knowing that the Potawatomi has fought it for years because it would cut into revenues for that tribe's casino in Milwaukee. 

The Ho-Chunk and Oneida tribes also say they're against the project.
