May 03, 2012 // Franchising.com // Moore, Okla. – Louisiana-based Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers opened the doors of its second Oklahoma restaurant in Moore today. Known for its industry-leading customer service and commitment to community, Raising Cane’s received a warm welcome from Southmoore High School cheerleaders and members of the Moore Chamber of Commerce, who took part in the restaurant’s grand opening celebration.
In light of the exciting occasion, Raising Cane’s gave its first 100 customers a commemorative T-shirt and meal voucher for the fan-favorite Box Combo, containing four fresh-never-frozen chicken fingers, Texas toast, secret recipe Cane’s sauce, coleslaw, fries and a drink. Today also kicked off the restaurant’s Give Back Giveaway grand opening tradition where customers can register through May 9 to win a $1,000 donation to his or her favorite local charity, as well as Free Cane’s for a Year.
“We are very grateful to everyone who came out today to welcome Raising Cane’s to the neighborhood,” said Damon Thomas, general manager. “We are excited to get to know this tight-knit community and grow our presence in the Moore area.”
Last Friday, Thomas and his new Raising Cane’s crew members volunteered their time at Little River Park by picking up trash and planting flowers. As part of its commitment to giving back to the community, Raising Cane’s makes it a priority to participate in a community service project before each new restaurant opening.
The new Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is located at 700 SW 19th Street in front of the Target shopping center. The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to midnight.
The opening of the Moore location makes it the second Raising Cane’s in Oklahoma, with the first restaurant opening in Norman in November 2005.
