Orlando, Fla., February 26, 2015 – At this time, Hard Rock International intends to operate its Atlantic City cafe location through the balance of its lease. The company will not close the location unless the Taj Mahal, the casino in which the cafe resides, closes.
Conditional notices required under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act were issued to employees in the event that the Taj Mahal bankruptcy plan is not approved, resulting in the closure of the Taj Mahal. These notices provide employees with appropriate advance notice of the possibility of Taj Mahal closure.
Since opening its doors in 1996, the brand has been and continues to be committed to Atlantic City and brand expansion within New Jersey.
