“I’ve lived in the area for more than 15 years and cannot tell you how excited we all are to have a Raising Cane’s to call our own,” said General Manager Shane Sowers. “We have hired an amazing team and we’re all looking forward to continuing our commitment to the community and to start sharing our ONE LOVE with everyone beginning next week.”
Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane, the rapidly growing company earned the distinction of being among the Top 3 quick service restaurant chains in the nation for 2017, according to the authoritative Sandelman & Associates Quick-Track study, based on food quality, customer service, cleanliness and other important factors.
Along with its focus on chicken fingers, Raising Cane’s is renowned for its commitment to active involvement in its local communities. Yesterday, Sowers and his fellow crewmembers volunteered their time at the Boys & Girls Clubs of La Habra, where they helped repaint high-use areas for local kids.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of La Habra create an environment that encourages, enlightens and builds the self-esteem of children in the community,” said Sowers. “We are honored to have had the opportunity to serve with this life-changing organization.”
Hours of operation at La Habra’s newest Raising Cane’s are Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. This marks the eighth Raising Cane’s in California and the 367th system-wide.
