Wait Nearly Over for “Caniacs” in Conroe!

From the sprawling metropolis of Houston to its suburban outposts in The Woodlands and Spring, the Raising Cane’s chicken finger revolution is on the move in the Lone Star State.

Residents and businesses of Conroe will testify to that next month when they welcome the Louisiana-based chain’s ONE LOVE® for the first time on Thursday, June 5.

The new Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurant, located at 2127 W. Davis St., just one mile west of I-45 by Conroe High School, promises a grand opening worthy of the addictive chicken fingers themselves. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Conroe Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries will take place at 9:30 a.m. and doors open at 10 a.m., with the first 10 paying, dine-in customers receiving Free Cane’s For a Year!

First-time visitors will also be treated to traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the location in unique Cane’s fashion, compliments of 50-60 newly hired crewmembers.

In addition, the first 100 paying, dine-in customers will receive a commemorative Conroe Cane’s T-shirt, along with a voucher for a free Box Combo – containing four fresh, never ever frozen chicken fingers, Texas toast, secret recipe Cane’s sauce, coleslaw, crinkle-cut fries and a drink – that may be redeemed on a subsequent visit.

Known for its ONE LOVE – quality chicken finger meals – Raising Cane’s mission extends beyond the kitchen and into the community with each grand opening, and Conroe is no exception. On Friday, May 30, General Manager Mark Pinz and his crewmembers will volunteer their time and talents to the Montgomery County Food Bank, located at 111 S. Second St. in Conroe. From 8 a.m. until noon, the team will unpack and sort canned goods and other essential food items for people in need.

Cane’s crewmembers were also front-and-center at Conroe’s Kids Fest last month, where they handed out shirts, hats, koozies and other cool schwag compliments of Raising Cane’s, which has consistently been named one of the “Best Companies To Work For” in communities throughout its system.

“Active support of our local communities is a huge part of Raising Cane’s DNA, so you’ll be seeing us getting heavily involved in Conroe’s schools and other non-profit organizations over the coming months and years,” said John Segura, marketing advisor for Raising Cane’s.  “Every Caniac in Conroe has been buzzing about the new restaurant for weeks. It’s always exciting to be welcomed into a new city and we are very proud to become a part of this close-knit community.”

From June 5-12, customers of the newest Raising Cane’s will also be invited to participate in the company’s “Give Back Giveaway” tradition, in which one customer will win a $1,000 donation to his or her local charity of choice, along with Free Cane’s for a Year.

The Conroe opening marks the 14th Raising Cane’s in the Houston market, 55th in Texas and 182nd system-wide.
