NASHVILLE, USA -- DHS Holding Co. has begun the first phase of development of the Cenote Falls Shopping Center, Hotel & Casino, a new world-class and family-friendly shopping experience slated for development on a recently acquired 40-acre parcel of land in Belize. This phase will include negotiations with major retailers and restaurant chains.

Charlie Barrett, president of DHS, stated, "I'm very excited that Mike Rohling, our CEO, will be working to bring in retailers such as McDonald's, Abercrombie & Fitch, Nike, and other fine stores."

Rohling said, "According to our research, nearly $100 million crosses the border from Belize into Mexico each year due to Belize citizens taking advantage of retail options not currently available in Belize. For the first time, Belize citizens will be able to have the EPZ shopping experience in their own country, and those dollars will remain in the Belize economy."

In a letter addressed to DHS, Minister of Economic Development Erwin Contreras stated, "My government welcomes investment that will contribute to the economic and social development of Belize with the ultimate goal of bringing improvement in the quality of life of all our citizens."

He went on to say, "My government is very much aware that a development of this magnitude will have a very positive impact on our local economy and therefore we will work with your company to ensure its successful implementation. It is most important to us that your efforts will bring employment and growth to Belize. We look forward to a fruitful relationship with your company."



CEO Michael Rohling and President Charles Barrett announce that on March 24, 2012, DHS Holding signed a Purchase Agreement to acquire 40 acres of land in the EPZ Zone bordering Belize and Mexico. (LARGE Map).

This purchase is the first step toward the development of "Cenote Falls", a multi-million-dollar Hotel, Casino and Shopping Center.

The Cenote Falls complex will include one of the best retail shopping centers in Central America. Family friendly restaurants and activities will complement the 50,000 square foot hotel and casino.

Attached to the property is a 14 acre Cenote. The cenote is located southwest of the site and is the inspiration for the name of the complex, Cenote Falls, Hotel, Casino & Shopping Center.

A Cautionary note from Lan Sluder......

Gimme a break.

DHS Holding Co. is a penny stock company primarily engaged in promoting it own penny stock. Its three "subsidiaries" have inactive websites.

A "50,000 sq. ft. hotel and casino" -- that's about the size of a Motel 6 in Podunk, Missouri.

RE: Cautionary note from Lan...

With all due respect Lan, I have to politely disagree. I've stayed at the Motel 6 in Podunk and it's much bigger! wink

C'mon, really???

If the GOB would put HALF the effort and attention into supporting the EXISTING and/or LEGITIMATE businesses in this country (the ones that make Belize special and unique) that they put towards the grandiose, never to be completed scams that, at BEST, will scar the country as half completed construction pock marks on the landscape, Belize would be the lauded tourist destination in the world.

McDonald's, Abercrombie & Fitch and Nike outlets coming to Belize

Belize does not boast brand name franchises, in regard to international companies; however all that may soon change because an American businessman says his company will bring international appeal to our shores. DHS Holding Company, based in Nashville, Tennessee, has announced the commencement of the first phase of development of the Cenote Falls Shopping Centre. It is being billed as an investment that will bring world class and family-friendly shopping experiences to Belize. The announcement was featured in the US media and it seems that construction will commence shortly on a recently acquired 40-acre parcel of land along our northern border.

President of DHS Holding, Co. has stated that they will bring in retailers such as McDonald's, Abercrombie & Fitch, Nike, and other fine stores."

Their research shows that Belizeans spend nearly $100 million across the border in Chetumal yearly, simply because retail options are not currently available in Belize. DHS Holding Company hopes to reverse that with the Shopping Centre. They have commented that “Belize citizens will be able to have the EPZ shopping experience in their own country and those dollars will remain in the Belize economy." the company is also submitting documentation to secure an online gaming license in Belize. In a letter to DHS Holding Company they reported that Honorable Erwin Contreras, Minister of Economic Development, stated, that Belize would look very favorably toward an approval of the license, subject to a final review of their business plan and supporting documentation. Contreras was also quoted saying that it is most important that DHS’s investment will bring employment and growth to Belize"

Mega development set to begin near Belize/Mexico Border

A major announcement was made today that was picked up by US networks, such as MSNBC. A US company DHS holding is claiming that franchises such as McDonald’s and high end stores such as Abercrombie & Fitch and Nike will be opening in Belize. The development is called Cenote Falls shopping Centre and is described as a world class and family friendly shopping experience. It is to be built on a forty acre parcel of land up north, through an Export Processing Zone. The first phase will include negotiations with major retailers and restaurant chains. Charlie Barrett, President of DHS is quoted saying that “Mike Rohling, the company’s C.E.O., will be working to bring in retailers such as McDonald’s, Abercrombie & Fitch, Nike, and other fine stores.” And according to Rohling’s research, nearly one hundred million dollars crosses the border from Belize into Mexico each year due to Belize citizens taking advantage of retail options not currently available in Belize. The content of a letter from the Minister of Economic Development, Honorable Erwin Contreras is also referred to, promising incentives to the group for the investment. We were unsuccessful in reaching Contreras for comment on the announcement of the huge investment.

The only North American retail companies I have seen in belize are Shell, Texaco, Subway and Planet Hollywood and the latter two are no longer around.

The free zone in Corazal is like a Ghost town and half the merchants have pulled out.

This project looks like another Ricky Pierce (Treasure Cove,) Scam.

I bet the next release will be..Franchisees needed!!! Secure your McDonalds franchise now....all we need is a small down payment and your credit card number....

That's funny and probably accurate.....I remember a few years back we were going to have an overhead tram that routed from the north to the south end of the island......Kind of the same thing I guess...
