MCALLEN, Texas – Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based company known for its ONE LOVE – quality chicken finger meals – just broke ground on its first restaurant in McAllen at 7417 N. 10th St.

When it opens in March, it will be the 8th Raising Cane’s in the Rio Grande Valley and 517th system-wide. The new restaurant plans on hiring 75 Crewmembers for multiple positions.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Caniacs in McAllen a Raising Cane’s to call their own,” said Area Leader of Restaurants Matt Stephens. “We can’t wait to hire an incredible crew to join us in sharing our ONE LOVE with everyone in the area, in addition to getting involved with schools and organizations throughout the community.”

Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane, the rapidly growing company has consistently been ranked among the top restaurants for Overall Customer Satisfaction based on food quality, customer service, cleanliness and other important factors. Raising Cane’s has been named a Top 10 brand for craveability and was recently recognized as having the Most Loyal Guests – known as “Caniacs” – in the fast-casual segment in Technomic’s 2018 Consumers’ Choice Awards.

At Raising Cane’s, it all starts with the chicken finger. The 100% premium white meat chicken tenderloins are marinated, hand-battered and cooked to order. The menu is also renowned for its craveable – some say addictive – secret-recipe Cane’s sauce, crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, Texas toast, freshly brewed sweet tea and fresh-squeezed lemonade. The company is likewise known for its commitment to active community involvement, centered on its six areas of focus: education, feeding the hungry, pet welfare, business development and entrepreneurship, active lifestyles and “everything else!”
