“I was born and raised in El Paso and can’t tell you how excited we are to open our fourth-area restaurant in the community’s beautiful new shopping and entertainment destination,” said General Manager Chris Holmes. “We’ve assembled an awesome crew and we’re all looking forward to getting involved with local schools and other organizations in northern El Paso.”
Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane, the rapidly growing company earned the distinction of being among the Top 3 quick service restaurant chains in the nation for 2017, according to the authoritative Sandelman & Associates Quick-Track study, based on food quality, customer service, cleanliness and other important factors.
Along with its focus on chicken fingers, Raising Cane’s is renowned for its commitment to active involvement in its local communities. On Aug. 8, Holmes and his fellow crewmembers volunteered and help with yard work at the YMCA Sunland Park facility. The new restaurant also has local sponsorships with UTEP, and Franklin and Canutillo High Schools.
“We are fortunate to have such an amazing YMCA program here in El Paso,” Holmes said. “Our team really enjoyed our time spent outside helping with yard work and were honored to have the opportunity to volunteer with the Sunland Park facility for our pre-opening service project.”
Hours of operation at El Paso’s new Raising Cane’s are Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. This marks the 129th Raising Cane’s in Texas and 392nd system-wide.
