A fast-food fried chicken chain known for its crispy chicken fingers and with a growing South Florida presence has set a date for the opening of its Royal Palm Beach location.
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers will have its grand opening at 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 23, at 100 N. State Road 7 in Royal Palm Beach, on the northeast corner of Southern Boulevard and State Road 7 in front of Christ Fellowship Church.
In a Facebook event, Raising Cane’s said the first 100 dine-in customers to buy a combo will receive a custom T-shirt, and those who visit the store between 8 and 9 a.m. Tuesday can enter into a drawing to be one of 20 people to win free Cane’s for a year. Winners will be drawn at about 9:15 a.m.
The restaurant’s regular hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Thursday and 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
This will be the second Raising Cane’s in Palm Beach County.
The first Palm Beach County store opened May 2 to hours-long lines. With a cult-like following of fans, Raising Cane’s grand openings are known to draw hundreds of people eager for the restaurant’s signature chicken fingers and Cane Sauce.
The menu is simple: chicken fingers, crinkle-cut fries, Cane’s Sauce, Texas toast, coleslaw and fountain drinks. The only sandwich on the menu is three chicken fingers on a toasted bun with Cane’s Sauce and lettuce.
The company, based in Louisiana and named after the founder’s dog, opened its first South Florida store in November in Homestead.
Two other Raising Cane’s locations will open Tuesday, according to the chain’s website: at 3295 Crain Highway in Waldorf, Maryland; and 1331 Gessner Road in Houston, Texas.
