Popular chicken finger brand to celebrate new restaurant opening in Pioneer Place Mall by giving away Free Cane’s for a Year and more on Nov. 21
PORTLAND (Nov. 19, 2019) – Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based restaurant company known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – is set to make its Oregon debut in Portland on Thursday, Nov. 21 in Pioneer Place Mall’s Roots Food District.
The new restaurant will kick off its grand opening festivities at 8:30 a.m., with a “Lucky 20” drawing to award 20 customers ages 13 and older Free Cane’s for a Year! Portland’s new Raising Cane’s will accept entries from 8:30-9 a.m., with the Lucky 20 drawing between 9-10 a.m. Customers must be present to win.
An official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Portland Business Alliance begins at 9 a.m. First-time visitors will be treated to traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the location in unique Cane’s fashion, compliments of its 40 newly hired crewmembers. 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.
To add to the excitement, there will also be a giveback giveaway raffle during opening week. One lucky customer will win Free Cane’s for a Year and be able to select a charity to receive a $1,000 donation on behalf of the local Raising Cane’s restaurant. Guests can enter to win using the raffle box located on the counter near the registers.
“I can’t tell you how special this is for the entire Raising Cane’s family, to finally bring Raising Cane’s to Oregon and to Caniacs in Portland,” said General Manager Cristian Segura Reyes. “The new restaurant is in a great location in Pioneer Place Mall and we’ve hired an incredible crew to join us in serving our ONE LOVE, quality chicken finger meals, to everyone in the area. We are looking forward to getting involved with local schools and organizations and can’t wait to become an integral part of 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 also been named a Top 10 brand for craveability and overall reputation and was recognized for 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, ensuring each chicken finger is served hot, fresh and juicy. The craveable, secret-recipe Cane’s sauce is homemade daily using only premium seasonings and spices. The extra-long crinkle-cut fries are served up hot, crisp and perfectly seasoned with salt. The Texas toast is lightly brushed with garlic and real butter, then grilled. And the coleslaw is made daily with fresh cabbage, carrots and creamy coleslaw dressing. Even the lemonade is fresh-squeezed daily, and the sweet tea is brewed throughout the day and sweetened with pure cane sugar. Both are served ice-cold over Cane’s signature crushed ice.
Along with its focus on chicken fingers, Raising Cane’s is renowned for its commitment to active involvement in its local communities. The new restaurant is looking to get heavily involved with the local community. Any organizations in the Portland area that are interested in partnering with Raising Cane’s are encouraged to reach out to canesandcommunity.com.
Portland’s first Raising Cane’s will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The new restaurant marks the first Raising Cane’s in Oregon and 477th system-wide.
