Singer Post Malone has designed a Raising Cane’s restaurant near his home in Midvale, Utah, with the renovation opening Thursday, the company announced.
Baton Rouge, La.-based Raising Cane’s said the collaboration is based on Malone’s longtime friendship with concept founder Todd Graves as well as the “Sunflower” and “Circles” singer’s own connection to the chicken finger brand.
After moving to Utah, Post asked Graves for a Cane’s location nearby and that Post could personally design. The Midvale Raising Cane’s recently underwent a full-scale renovation to redesign all aspects of the restaurant, including the dining room, building exterior, and landscaping. Every element of the restaurant was custom designed by Post himself.
“I have the best childhood memories of eating at Raising Cane’s in Dallas,” Malone said in a statement. “Collaborating with Todd on this restaurant near my house in Utah was awesome, and I can’t wait for everyone to order their meal the ‘Posty Way.’”
The Posty Way order will be available at the restaurant, featuring four chicken fingers, crinkle cut fries, two Cane’s sauce and two Texas toasts, served with a half unsweet tea/half lemonade in a collector’s cup.
In addition, when customers order the Posty Way they will get a Malone-themed napkin, to-go bag, platter liner and black clam shell. The Posty Way will also come with an exclusive decal sticker.
Graves noted that "Post and I not only have a special friendship, but we are fans of each other’s brand.”
The concept founder added, “This collaboration goes above and beyond to combine Post’s legendary vision with our award-winning chicken fingers. It’s over the top —something the restaurant industry has never seen to this level.”
The restaurant is wrapped in solid pink with Post Malone tattoo imagery and brushed stainless steel “1” tower. The pink color of the restaurant exterior flows into the interior flooring and walls. Window wraps create a glow at night and a dining room in brushed stainless steel, and new stainless-steel furniture with silver booth fabric.
Outfits worn by Malone are displayed on the wall, including one that was worn for the cover of Billboard Magazine’s January 2022 issue. Malone’s guitars are framed and hung in the restaurant. The design also is included in to-go packaging and crew-member uniforms.
A 1974 Ford F250 pickup, wrapped in brushed silver, serves as a permanent fixture in the parking lot with a custom license plate.
The restrooms are medieval-themed, reflecting Malone’s interest in armor from the period.
A vending machine wrapped in pink vinyl is stocked with exclusive merchandise for purchase, including T-shirts, beanies, socks, ping pong balls, magnets, keychains, steel cups and guitar picks.
Raising Cane’s has more than 700 restaurants in more than 35 states and Guam.
