Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based restaurant company, will open in Beavercreek at 4384 Indian Ripple Road. This will be Raising Cane’s 400th restaurant system-wide.

The new restaurant kicked off its grand opening festivities at 8:30 a.m., with a “Lucky 20” drawing to award 20 customers ages 13 and older “Free Cane’s for a Year.” Beavercreek’s new Raising Cane’s will accept entries from 8:30-9:30 a.m., with the Lucky 20 drawing held between 9:30-9:45 a.m.

The first 100 dine-in customers ages 13 and older to purchase a Combo meal will receive a free limited-edition Cane’s T-shirt, along with a voucher for a free Box Combo.

“I’ve lived in the area for 16 years and can’t tell you how excited we are in Beavercreek to have a Raising Cane’s to call our own,” said General Manager Martina Stiles.

Hours of operation at Beavercreek’s new Raising Cane’s are Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to midnight. The restaurant is the 28th in Ohio and 400th system-wide.

Earlier this month, the local franchisee for Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, RCO Limited, withdrew its request for a proposed site near Stroop Road and Far Hills Avenue in Kettering.

At issue was the zoning of the location at 3910 Far Hills Avenue, which most recently housed an OinkADoodleMoo location. Kettering officials have previously recommended the project be denied.

“It has always been and always will be our intention to be the best community partner and be engaged and supportive in every community we have the opportunity to grow with,” RCO Limited said in a statement. “We look forward to finding opportunities to join the Kettering community. Right now, we are focused on and excited for our second Dayton area restaurant opening on Oct. 30 in Beavercreek.”
