Food Court Spaces Available Now

A Desirable Location

The Cocopah Food Court is located in the covered breezeway between the Cocopah Resort & Conference Center and the Cocopah Casino on the Cocopah East Reservation, nestled in the historic Yuma Valley. The area is a well-traveled location, just off Highway 95 and within miles/minutes of Yuma, Ariz., the Yuma International Airport and two major ports of entry at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Nestled between a Resort, Conference Center and Casino

The Food Court was built attached to the south side of the three-story, 70,000-square-foot Cocopah Resort and Conference Center, which opened in December 2007.

Cocopah Resort and Conference Center is described as a modern Southwest style with soft colors and landscaping. It is comprised of 101 rooms - including seven suite-style rooms - a swimming area and a cultural display area.

Also offered is an additional 3,000-square-foot conference center with adjustable walls that assemble to make three independent meeting rooms. The conference center hosts local and out-of-town special events, seminars and business groups on a regular basis.

The Food Court is connected on its south side to the Cocopah Casino. Casino patrons enjoy over 500 slot machines, blackjack tables, a restaurant, lounge, sports bar, convention and special event space and bingo room.

Cocopah Casino averages a minimum of 3,000 customers per day. These numbers increase significantly during special events held at the casino venue: Caballeros de Yuma's Midnight at the Oasis car show, the annual Elvis Presley Expo, Desert Rage cage fighting and the 4th of July extravaganza to name a few.

Choose from Four Designs

There are four tenant spaces available: 615, 660, 710 and 740 sq. ft. and a dining area, that borders both the resort and casino. The area is designated as alcohol-free. As an added bonus, the Cocopah Gift Shop also resides in the breezeway corridor.
