French Lick Resort plans an expansion of additional 56 guest rooms and a sports bar opening in the fall of 2019.  This will create the need to hire more than 100 -150 new associates to staff.

The new rooms and sports bar are both going up near French Lick Casino, with the sports bar and ADA-accessible guestrooms on the ground level in an area that currently exists as casino shell space and exterior parking on the northwestern side of the casino. In total, the sports bar and new guestrooms will encompass 54,450 additional square feet.

“There’s going to be more guests, which means more carriage rides, more trolley stops, all sorts of those things,” Franz said. “It will increase jobs across the resort.”
