HUGO, Okla. — The Choctaw Nation reports that it has opened its new Choctaw Nation Central Laundry Facility here.
The opening was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 15. Chief Gary Batton, Choctaw Nation Tribal Council members, employees and community members were in attendance to celebrate.
“It’s exciting to have another opportunity to employ people in our nation’s reservation,” states Chief Gary Batton.
“Not only are we able to expand our operations to handle the significant amount of laundry with the new Durant expansion and other area resorts, but we’re able to provide jobs in an area that doesn’t see a lot of new opportunities.”
With the increase of laundry services, Choctaw Nation Central Laundry will provide an easier, more efficient way to manage and will service all laundry from the three casino and resort properties in Durant, Pocola and Grant.
As part of its continued investment in the region, the Tribe says it added approximately 23 new jobs totaling 45 jobs at the new facility.
