Louisiana-Based Fried Chicken Chain Raising Cane's Open Fifth San Diego Location This June

May 22, 2023

The fifth San Diego location of chicken tender restaurant chain Raising Cane's is opening this June. 

Founded by Todd Graves in Baton Rouge, LA in 1996 and named after his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is a fast-food chain that now has more than 375 restaurants in 24 states, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with multiple new restaurants under construction. The first San Diego outpost opened in Santee in 2018 with the second area branch opened in Vista later that year, the third unveiling in September 2020 in Mira Mesa, and the fourth launched in fall 2021 in Escondido. 

The fifth San Diego branch of Raising Canes's will open within Chula Vista Center outdoor shopping mall on June 20. Like other locations, the concise menu will be centered around fresh-never-frozen, hand-dipped chicken fingers that are breaded and fried to order and available in combo platters and on sandwiches. Raising Cane's has plans to open up to 30 locations in the San Diego area over the next decade. Two more area locations are currently in development, one at 12665 Poway Road in Poway and the other in the former site of a Union Bank on Palm Avenue in Imperial Beach.

Raising Cane's is anticipated to open on Tuesday, June 20, at 555 Broadway in San Diego's South County city of Chula Vista. For more information, visit raisingcanes.com.
