Margaritaville CEO: Combining vacation resort with NYC sights will draw tourists in
Margaritaville CEO John Cohlan tells ‘Cavuto: Coast to Coast’ he predicts plenty of Happy Hours will happen after work.
Manhattan is welcoming Margaritaville as restaurants are allowed to reopen at full capacity with few coronavirus precautions in place.
"Things are great, we've actually opened all the restaurants," Margaritaville CEO John Cohlan told "Cavuto: Coast to Coast" Thursday. "People in New York are welcoming Margaritaville and having a lot of fun…we're all having a lot of fun serving them."
Last month, Jimmy Buffet kicked off the grand opening with a surprise performance of his signature song, "Margaritaville" at the New York City resort located in Times Square.
