On April 19, 2017, FireKeepers Casino Hotel marked the Grand Opening of its Fire Hub restaurant and Kendall Street Pantry. The opening ceremony included Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Tribal Council along with additional elected officials and Michigan business partners.

“The Fire Hub will help meet basic needs for people and is a great example of community revitalization and working together to help one another,” said Governor Snyder. “Strong, vibrant communities require teamwork and a shared commitment to a brighter future.”

The project, originally announced in May of 2016, is a multi-million dollar investment in the Battle Creek community in which 80 percent of profits will be pooled to benefit local charities in addition to a food pantry working in conjunction with the Food Bank of South Central Michigan, for those less fortunate. Another major element of the project is the development of nearby tribal lands to farm and grow vegetables, with a goal of delivering a free salad bar to students in area communities.

“The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi (“NHBP”) is honored to lead this amazing community initiative,” stated NHBP Tribal Council Chairman, Jamie Stuck. “We can deliver the region’s best casino resort product while simultaneously improving the lives of local residents. Supporting the local community has always been a priority for us and today’s Grand Opening is the successful collaboration of the tribe’s community focus, Chef McFarlen’s vision and the dedicated efforts of the Food and Beverage team at FireKeepers Casino Hotel.”

The Fire Hub restaurant will be open Tuesday to Saturday from 6 am to 6 pm, in Battle Creek, and will offer a variety of menu items such as freshly made bread and muffins, breakfast items, soups, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, pizzas and desserts.
