Employee perk: Popular Baton Rouge-based chain restaurant to close early ahead of national championship
A popular chain restaurant that specializes in chicken fingers will change its hours ahead of the national championship tonight. Baton Rouge-based Raising Cane’s is giving its employees a break so they can watch the LSU-Clemson game.
The restaurant announced that it would close at 7:30 p.m., and encouraged customers to call in their tailgate order early.
The restaurant opened in 1996, and now has more than 470 restaurants in 27 states, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with multiple new restaurants under construction. The company said its vision is to have restaurants all over the world and be the brand for quality chicken finger meals, a great crew, cool culture and active community involvement.
Cane’s has long been an LSU supporter, and previously had a custom-painted vehicle with “Coach O Mobile” on the side surrounded by Tiger gold. In 2017, Cane’s made a sponsorship deal with coach Ed Orgero to use the new head coach of the Tigers in TV and radio commercials throughout the state of Louisiana.
