According to the Natomas Buzz and Sacramento Business Journal, Raising Cane’s chicken fingers has filed construction plans for a location at the former On the Border restaurant at the Natomas Marketplace shopping center. City records show that they are planning a 3,194-square-foot drive-thru restaurant at that location.

Raising Cane’s was founded in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by Todd Graves. They specialize in chicken fingers, french fries, texas toast, and cole slaw. They have 504 stores open worldwide, including locations in Bahrain, Kuwait, and Lebanon.

The founder, franchise, and food have won countless awards, including “Best Chicken Tenders” from The Fasties. Raising Cane’s was also recognized as having the “Most Loyal Guests” in the fast-casual segment in Technomic’s 2018 Consumers’ Choice Awards.


Cane’s made news recently when CEO Todd Graves managed to navigate through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic — when sales at his 500 restaurants were down as much as 30%, without laying off any employees.

No date for opening has been provided.
