Marshall Roth, who recently opened the Hollywood Casino's upscale Final Cut Steakhouse as that restaurant's executive chef, is taking a new gamble. The former hot-dog mogul (he owned and operated the Dog Nuvo hot doggery in the Crossroads until last autumn) has given notice to the casino — Sunday is his last day — and is moving to Wichita to take over the corporate kitchen at Hawker Beechcraft; the food service at the factory is run by Kansas City-based TreatAmerica.
Roth is the primary caregiver for his invalid mother, so he had been looking for a 9 to 5 position. "I love Kansas City and have made some wonderful friends here," Roth says, "but I needed to find a job that can work with my personal issues."
Roth will oversee the corporate cafeteria and the private dining room at the facility. "It was a hard decision to make," he says. "I loved the Final Cut Steakhouse. But I have to do what's right for me right now."
