Cherokee Nation is building an $80 million entertainment destination in Roland. Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland is bringing hundreds of new jobs and more entertainment, dining and hotel options to Sequoyah County. Along with the significant impact of its opening, the project is giving construction companies plenty of work.
“The satisfaction of working for and with our people is awesome. You couldn’t ask for more,” said Brian Cooper, owner of the TERO-certified Cooper Construction and project director of Cooper Flintco. “It’s like working with family. About 90 percent of my work is through the Nation. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the Cherokee Nation.”
