Our Vision

About Us
The Dream, it sounded crazy, but one man had a dream to fry chicken. That man is Todd
Graves, Founder of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
Graves was fresh out of college with a dream but no job, money or experience. This dream soon became his passion, and he was determined to make his chicken finger restaurant a reality.

The Struggles Begins, to learn about business, Graves read business books, went to seminars and talked with business people. He was told he needed to write a business plan.
So along with a friend who was enrolled in a business class at LSU, he decided to use the classes to get it done. Ironically the project got a C.

Armed with his business plan, a list of the banks in town and private investors, he set out to raise the money he needed.

He was shot down again and again with same response...”A restaurant serving on chicken finger meals will never make it”, and “You have no prior restaurant experience and no money to invest in the business yourself…it won’t work.”

Now determined than ever to make his dream a reality, Todd decided to raise his own capital.

To make a lot of money in a short time, he put on a hard hat and moved to Los Angeles to labor ninety hours a week as a boilermaker in a refinery. There he met a man named “Wild Bill” who told him to go to Alaska to work as a commercial Sockeye Salmon fisherman. So Graves packed his bags, hopped on a plane and then hitchhiked to Naknek, Alaska. He slept in a tent on the frozen tundra for a month before he could convince a boat captain to give him a job. Salmon fishing was long, hard, dangerous work. “During peak season, we would work twenty hour days and boats would often ram each other to get better sets for their nets.” Graves considered it a worthwhile risk.

He returned home with his hard-earned money, but still needed investors. This time they listened!
After securing the capital and a small loan, Graves found the perfect location. It was a very old, run down, but affordable building at the entrance to Louisiana State University. A deal was signed and renovations began. Armed with a jackhammer, Graves and his crew worked day and night. It was a huge task, but a labor of love. They put in parking, a drive-thru window, serving counters, and restored old wood paneling to become the first Raising Cane’s. Graves set up the first corporate office for Raising Cane’s in the kitchen of his old, leaky roofed apartment behind the restaurant.

It’s open! RAISING CANE’S opened for business on August 26, 1996..and it was an immediate success. Customers crowded in for the great tasting chicken finger meals. They were so busy they stayed open until 3.30 am, slept a few hours, and did it all again the next day. The first month Raising Cane’s turned a small profit and Graves was thrilled! “It was one of the best times of my life”, Graves recalled. “I loved bringing together a great group of people who shared my passion!”
