An official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Lawton Chamber of Commerce begins at 9:30 a.m. OKC Thunder mascot, Rumble, will join the Thunder Girls and Storm Chasers in pumping up the opening day crowd starting at 8:30 a.m. KLAW 101 – Oklahoma’s Best Country – will also be hosting a radio remote and giving away Cane’s swag onsite from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition, the first 100 dine-in customers ages 13 and older to purchase a Combo meal will receive a free limited-edition 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. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Caniacs in Lawton a Raising Cane’s to call their own,” said General Manager Jimmy Cameron. “We’ve assembled an amazing crew and the new restaurant is in a great location, near Fort Sill and Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. We’re looking forward to becoming an integral part of the community and can’t wait to get more involved with schools and other organizations in the area.”

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 Oct. 31, Cameron and his fellow crewmembers volunteered their time at the Marie Detty Youth & Family Service Center, Inc.

“We had a lot of fun helping this amazing non-profit agency package 100 individual overnight kits for distribution in our community,” Cameron said. “Marie Detty Youth & Family Services serves the needs of our community as a whole by providing those who are vulnerable and in need with comfort and care. We are honored to have had the opportunity to volunteer with them for our pre-opening service project.”
