Raising Cane’s, known for its chicken finger meals, is a fast-growing restaurants and is identified as an industry leader in supporting each community they serve.

The new Raising Cane’s restaurants will be located in Avondale and Mesa, Arizona, and are scheduled to open one week apart, November 1 and November 8, respectively. The openings will mark five Raising Cane’s restaurant launches in the Valley since 2011. The first 100 “Caniacs” can receive a commemorative t-shirt and free box combo good for their next visit, with any purchase. Each grand opening ceremony is from 9 to 10 a.m. at designated locations. The city mayor and local officials will be in attendance at each location for ribbon cutting ceremonies and check presentations.

“Our expansion in Phoenix is an exciting time for everyone at MRG,” says CEO and partner Joe Micatrotto Jr. “By opening these locations, we are two steps closer towards creating ‘Caniacs’ across the Valley of the Sun. We hope the Avondale and Mesa communities are as excited to have us as we are to be there.”

The new locations are expected to bring 100 new jobs to the Phoenix metropolitan area.
