The Metroplex is already home to 27 Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurants, but local Caniacs can’t seem to get enough. The Louisiana-based chain recently broke ground on its newest location, in The Colony. It is tentatively scheduled to open in late June.
The newest restaurant extends DFW’s lead as the most populated market in the entire Raising Cane’s system. It will also be the first constructed to the company’s new and larger prototype specifications.
“The Colony is a great spot for Raising Cane’s and building a restaurant here is a very big milestone for us and for all of the Caniacs that live, work, and play in this great city”, said Luke Overman, area director of operations. “I have also received feedback from many of our customers that they have been waiting for a Raising Cane’s to open in The Colony, so we believe this is a win for everybody. Our culture is rooted in the relationships we build in each community we serve, so our crewmembers will definitely be reaching out to area schools and organizations of all types in the months ahead to see how we can become an active community partner.”
The Colony’s first Raising Cane’s will be located at 3851 Plano Parkway, just south of the Sam Rayburn Tollway.
