Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurant officially opened in Maple Grove Aug. 7. The new location is at 9875 Maple Grove Parkway. The restaurant serves chicken finger meals.

Grand opening festivities included: a Free Cane’s for a Year drawing, ribbon cutting, live radio broadcasts and giveaways.

“I’ve lived in Minnesota for 20 years, so I’m very familiar with the local Caniac scene,” said General Manager Miguel Acosta. “Maple Grove has been clamoring for a Raising Cane’s to call their own, so we couldn’t be more excited to open our doors. We’ve assembled an awesome crew and our new restaurant is in a great location. We’re all looking forward to becoming an integral part of the community and can’t wait to get involved with schools and other organizations in the area.”

Along with its focus on chicken fingers, Raising Cane’s is renowned for its commitment to active involvement in its local communities. On Aug. 1, Acosta and his fellow crewmembers volunteered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), where they helped pack food for those in need.

“FMSC is an amazing non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children,” Acosta said. “We really enjoyed our time spent helping hand-pack the meals and we were honored to have the opportunity to volunteer with FMSC for our pre-opening service project.”

Hours of operation at Maple Grove’s new Raising Cane’s are Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight. This marks the seventh Raising Cane’s in Minnesota and 390th system-wide.
