Popular chicken finger brand to hold grand opening on Tuesday

OMAHA, NE (Nov. 10, 2016) – The people of Omaha just can’t seem to get enough Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers!

The popular Louisiana-based restaurant company known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – is putting the finishing touches on its fifth area restaurant, in anticipation of its grand opening on Tuesday, Nov. 15. The newest Raising Cane’s is located at 14548 W. Center Rd., near Oak View Mall in Omaha.

The festivities begin at 9:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Omaha Chamber of Commerce. Representatives from local school districts will also join in on the fun. 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 70 newly hired crewmembers. Doors open to the public at 10 a.m.

To add to the 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 limited-edition Cane’s Omaha 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.

Radio station KQCH 94.1-FM will also be on-hand, playing Top 40 hits from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Raising Cane’s restaurants are popping up all across Omaha, and we couldn’t be happier about spreading our ONE LOVE to yet another great part of our city,” said General Manager Frank Romano. “We’ve assembled an awesome crew and we’re looking forward to opening our doors next Tuesday at our beautiful new restaurant by Oak View Mall.”

Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane’s recently earned the distinction of being among the Top 10 quick service restaurant chains in the nation for 2015, 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 Wed., Nov. 9, Romano and his fellow crewmembers volunteered their time at Boys Town in Omaha, where they helped clean the chapels in preparation for the holiday season.

“We were proud to help out at Boys Town for our pre-opening service project, supporting the life-sustaining work they do for at-risk children here in Omaha,” said Romano. “And we’re excited about getting even more involved with the local schools and other organizations throughout the area in the weeks, months and years ahead.”

Hours of operation at Raising Cane’s newest restaurant are Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 Midnight. When it opens, it will be the 10th Raising Cane’s in Nebraska and the 303rd its nationwide system.
