BIMINI, The Bahamas -- Resorts World Bimini (RWB) continues to provide a significant boost to the economy of Bimini and the Bahamas as a whole, spending millions of dollars with local businesses in the process. In 2014 alone, RWB spent more than $8.6 million with Bimini and New Providence based businesses for various goods and services including food and beverage, transportation, and entertainment.
"Resorts World Bimini continues to demonstrate its commitment to help fuel Bimini's economy," says RWB President Edward Farrell. "Bimini businesses are experiencing exponential growth as a result of our presence, and this will only get better as our project continues to expand."
One of the businesses directly and indirectly impacted by RWB's operation is Stuart's Conch Stand which supplies the resort with seafood for its restaurants as well as services many of the visitors who come to the island in search of the Bahamian delicacy. Proprietor Fabian Stuart says business has been on an upswing since the advent of RWB.
"We are grateful to Resorts World for their support," he said. "Business has been so good that we are in the process of expanding our operation and I'm really excited about what the future holds."
Another food vendor that has been servicing the Resort is Nate's Variety of Bimini Bread, which supplies bread to RWB's six restaurants.
