Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers eyes first Northeast Ohio location

Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers eyes first Northeast Ohio location

Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers may be moving into Strongsville if city council rezones property for the business.

The parcel is the northwest corner of Pearl Road and Pierce Drive. It's currently zoned for general business, but it would need to be rezoned for restaurant/recreational services.

The measure is in its infancy, but a rezoning decision is expected by late summer or early fall.

The first Raising Cane's opened in 1996 in Louisiana. The owners, Todd Graves and Craig Silvey, founded the business in Baton Rouge the same year. The owners pitched the restaurant idea for the first time while at Louisiana State University and the project received a B-. Graves and Silvey now have more than 320 restaurants in the country.

The nearest Cane's to Cleveland is in Columbus. If the Strongsville location opens, it will be the first in Northeast Ohio.

The restaurant specializes in chicken fingers. Take a look at the full menu here.

Cane's Sauce is provided with every chicken fingers meal. Only managers at each location have access to the recipe and are allowed to make the sauce. They sign a confidentiality agreement regarding any details of the sauce when they are hired.
