Raising Cane’s is exploring the Orlando area for its next 2 locations, sources are saying. The Loop West Shopping Center in Kissimmee and near Lake Nona at Narcoossee Road and Vickrey Place may be the lucky winners. This will mark the 4th major food franchise expanding to the Central Florida area. White Castle is set to open any day. Portillo’s and Cowboy Chicken are under construction.
The chain — which offers chicken fingers, fries, Texas toast, coleslaw, and drinks — has roughly 500 restaurants nationwide. The first Raising Cane’s opened in 1996 by Todd Graves (Founder, CEO, Fry Cook & Cashier) is an inspirational story of hard work and a self-starter. Working 90 hours a week at an oil refinery. Then working 20 hours a day as a fisherman in Alaska to make enough money to start the business. Returning home to open his first “mothership” location by the LSU entrance. Doing all the renovations himself.
The closest Cane’s right now is north Georgia or South Carolina. This would be their first expansion into Florida.
