On Thursday, Nov. 13, Louisiana-based Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers will open its third restaurant in Fort Worth while marking its first decade of ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – in the Dallas-Fort Worth market.
Cane’s newest restaurant, located at 8801 North Freeway, at the corner of N. Tarrant Parkway and I-35 West and across from Alliance Town Center, will kick off its grand opening festivities at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony compliments of the Keller Chamber of Commerce, and attended by State Representative Matt Krause and other local dignitaries.
To add to the excitement, the Fossil Ridge High School Drum Line will be on hand, and 50-60 newly hired crewmembers will perform their traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the new location in unique Cane’s fashion.
In addition, The Ticket’s George Dunham will be onsite from 11 a.m. to noon on Friday, Nov. 14, to continue the party into the weekend.
But wait, there’s more! The first 100 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and up will receive a commemorative Fort Worth 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. And the first 10 of those customers will receive Free Cane’s For a Year!
DFW’s love affair with Raising Cane’s and its ONE LOVE began on Nov. 22, 2004, with the opening of the first local restaurant at 720 Hebron Parkway in Lewisville. Aptly nicknamed “Black Jack,” the flagship location was the company’s 21st restaurant system-wide. Today, Raising Cane’s addictive chicken fingers can be found in 27 locations spanning from Fort Worth to Rockwall, Arlington to McKinney, and points in between.
“It’s hard to believe 10 years have gone by already!” said Marketing Manager Courtney Colvin. “All of us at Cane’s are excited and proud to have made DFW the biggest market in the company’s entire system. But just as important, we’re proud of the contributions we’ve made to the schools, animal shelters, food banks and other wonderful non-profit organizations that contribute so much to the fabric of North Texas. We love DFW, and we’re so glad DFW loves Cane’s, too!”
In keeping with the company’s dedication to community involvement, Cane’s took part in Fossil Ridge High School’s pep rally on Oct. 31, presenting two lucky students with Free Cane’s for a Year and a $500 scholarship each. Last week, Fort Worth General Manager Rachel Baehr and her crewmembers also assisted Community Storehouse, sorting donations for local children in need.
“It truly is a blessing to work for a company that not only insists on being the best at its craft but is genuinely committed to serving its local communities,” said Baehr, who boasts 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry, the last two with Cane’s. “We can’t wait to welcome a new group of Caniacs to our restaurant and we’re thrilled to become an integral part of this close-knit area.”
The new Fort Worth restaurant marks Cane’s 66th in Texas and its 207th system-wide. Its hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to midnight.
