Meet the newest chain to enter NYC


Raising Cane’s — the Louisiana-based, cult-favorite chicken fingers chain known for its special sauce and Texas-style toast — has entered the New York City market with the grand opening of its 8,000-square-foot global flagship store in Times Square on June 27.

Since originally opening in Baton Rouge in 1996, the company has grown to 740 restaurants in 36 states. Now, Raising Cane’s has plans to become a top 10 quick-service restaurant chain with 100 restaurants alone slated to open in 2023. Over the next couple of years, Raising Canes is opening 25 more locations in the New York City metropolitan area, including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Long Island, as the company starts to saturate new markets.
