Chicken Finger Takeover Continues in Houston

Raising Cane’s to open area’s 22nd restaurant in northwest Houston this Thursday

Houston-area Caniacs will soon have another convenient location for getting their chicken finger fix.

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based chain known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – will hold its latest grand opening on Thursday, Nov. 19, marking the 22nd Raising Cane’s in Space City, the 83rd in Texas and the 247th overall in its nationwide system.

Located at 13330 Tomball Parkway in northwest Houston, the new restaurant will kick off the festivities at 9:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce, local fire, police and city officials.

First-time visitors will be treated to traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the location in unique Cane’s fashion, compliments of its 50-60 newly hired crewmembers. Doors open to the public at 10 a.m.

To add to the opening day excitement, the first 20 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive Free Cane’s for a Year! In addition, the first 100 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive a free Cane’s NW Houston 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.

“Houston is already one of Raising Cane’s largest markets, but this will be our first restaurant in the northwestern reaches of the city,” said General Manager Kurtis Galyen. “We can’t wait to start serving up our ONE LOVE to local Caniacs, and we’re equally excited about supporting neighboring schools and other community organizations that make this such a great place to live, work, eat and play.”

 

On Nov. 13, Galyen and his fellow crewmembers took the opportunity prior to their grand opening to volunteer at Northwest Assistance Ministries, pitching in at the facility on various projects. The organization is dedicated to helping people achieve independence while respecting racial, cultural and religious differences.

“Active community involvement is a huge part of Raising Cane’s culture, so we were happy to do our part to advance the mission of a great organization like Northwest Assistance Ministries,” said Galyen.

Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane, the rapidly growing chain recently earned the distinction of being among the top four quick service restaurant chains in the nation for 2014, according to the authoritative Sandelman & Associates Quick-Track study, based on food quality, customer service, cleanliness and other important factors.

Hours of operation at Houston’s newest restaurant are Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
