Paula Deen buffet out at Horseshoe
Caesars Entertainment Corp. (NASDAQ: CZR) announced last week it has reached a mutual agreement with Paula Deen Enterprises not to renew the two companies’ business relationship. Caesars operates Paula Deen-themed restaurants at four of its properties, including Horseshoe Southern Indiana at Bridgeport. Caesars intends to rebrand the restaurants in the coming months.
‘While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past that she recently disclosed during a deposition given in response to a lawsuit, after thoughtful consideration of their impact, we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,’ Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment, said.
