Raising Cane's to open restaurant #94 in Veteran's Day Style!

Raising Cane's, a now national chicken finger restaurant chain that got its start right here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is set to celebrate the grand opening of the 94th Raising Cane's on Florida Boulevard tomorrow.  I'll be there to help them get started in sauced up style!  The new location, near Cortana Mall, will enter the marketplace with a Veteran's Day tribute starting at 9:30 AM.  The ceremony will feature a ribbon cutting and a fundraising event benefiting the American Legion. The LSU Pershing Rifles will present the colors and country music singer David St. Romain will sing the national anthem. The event will kick off a one day fundraiser for the American Legion Scholarship Fund. Raising Cane’s will donate 15 percent of net proceeds on Veteran’s Day from the Florida Boulevard restaurant for any customers mentioning the fundraiser. Additionally, Raising Cane’s will present a $1000 check to the American Cancer Society – a donation made on behalf of a customer who won the restaurant’s Give Back Giveaway.  Also set to be in attendance are Todd Graves, Raising Cane II, and Mayor-President Kip Holden.  Plus, if you come by early, I'm sure you'll find a free chicken finger or two!

  1. I've only been to one Raising Cane's and it was awesome! Just wish we had them in the midwest!

  2. I can understand that! I'd miss them so much if I wasn't surrounded by Cane's every day!
