Raising Cane’s, the popular fast-food chain that serves crispy chicken tenders and buttery Texas Toast, is expanding to Northridge, located at 19310 Business Center Dr.
Since its inception in 1996, the popular chicken eatery has expanded to over 500 locations across the United States. The new restaurant marks the 20th location in Los Angeles but the furthest north in the county. The fast-food restaurant will replace Marie Calendars with a 3,265 square-foot space with a dual-lane drive-through with indoor and outdoor dining. There is no official opening date.
The fast-food chain, founded by Todd Graves, was recently ranked as one of the best employers for women in 2021. Besides their excellent restaurant culture, the restaurant only has four food options: chicken fingers, fries, slaw, and Texas toast. 25 years later, the restaurant maintains its minimalistic menu that has become a front-runner for fast-food chicken.
“So the chicken fingers and sauce, that’s the epicenter … it’s the highest quality chicken, but the chicken with the sauce, that’s the hook, right? The chicken by itself is really good, but with the sauce, that’s the craveable part,” Graves told Mashed. “But then you have those crinkle-cut fries. I grew up with crinkle-cut fries; I’m nostalgic. My mother would make that. The crinkles get it a little more crisp, I think.”
