Louisville Caniacs Welcome 3rd Raising Cane’s to Town

First 10 customers on Tuesday, May 5 to get Free Cane’s for a Year!

As if two Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurants could possibly satisfy all the Caniacs in Louisville…

The popular Louisiana-based chain known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – will hold its latest grand opening ceremony on Tuesday, May 5, marking the ninth Raising Cane’s in the state of Kentucky and the third in Louisville. CRM Companies, based in Lexington, KY, developed and runs the restaurants in the Bluegrass State.

Located at 5212 Dixie Highway in Louisville, the new restaurant will kick off the festivities at 10 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. 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 60 newly hired crewmembers.

To add to the opening day excitement, the first 10 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive Free Cane’s for a Year! Doors open at 10:30 a.m.

In addition, the first 100 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive a commemorative Louisville 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.

“I’ve opened around 20 restaurants before, but this one has raised my excitement level to an all-time high. There’s no place like Raising Cane’s – our quality and expectations are far above any company I’ve ever worked with,” said General Manager Joey Goode, who has called Louisville home for most of his life. “Not to mention, I’ve hired 60 new crewmembers and each of them is awesome in his or her own way. I love developing future leaders and I see several in this group.”

Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his beloved yellow Labrador, Raising Cane’s mission extends beyond the kitchen and into the community with each grand opening. On Tuesday, a percentage of sales will be donated to USA Cares, an organization dedicated to helping post-9/11 military families bear the burdens of service by providing financial and advocacy support in their time of need.

“USA Cares is an incredible organization doing life-changing work for wounded veterans and their families,” said Goode. “It’s our privilege to dedicate a portion of our opening day sales to helping these true American heroes.”

Hours of operation at the new Raising Cane’s are Sunday through Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to midnight.
