It was back in January this year that we first reported that Raising Cane’s was coming to Florida, with at least 12 stores in the Orlando area and at least 25 locations across Florida, and now finally, the first three Orlando area restaurant are set to open this winter.

The popular chicken finger brand is set to make its Orlando area debut at 7105 Palm Parkway today, November 7, as part of the exciting new O-Town West development - close to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld.

This morning at 9:45 a.m. a ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place with representatives from the Orlando Economic Partnership.

The first 100 Customers who dine in and purchase a Box Combo will receive a commemorative T-shirt and a free Box Combo card valid on their next visit. There will also be a drawing to award 20 Customers Free Cane’s for a Year!

“We are so excited to open doors and to share our ONE LOVE with the Orlando community and the over 70 million tourists who visit our community each year,” said Alisa Petermichael, Area Leader of Restaurants.

The restaurant's opening hours are Sunday to Thursday 10 a.m. - 1 a.m., and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. - 2 a.m.

The new restaurant opening today will mark the first of three Central Florida openings, with the nex Orlando location at 12040 Pioneers Way, opening in December, followed by the third location in Kissimmee at 8170 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway.

Founded by CEO Todd Graves in 1996, Raising Cane’s first opened in Baton Rogue, Louisiana with a menu focused almost exclusively on chicken fingers, fries and coleslaw along with its signature “Cane’s Sauce.”

Customers also have the option to order thick Texas toast, or have the chicken tenders between buns as a chicken tender sandwich.

No opening date has been announced but with permits filed with the state, it hopefully shouldn't be long before the new store takes shape.
