Bay Area’s first Raising Cane will open this summer

Caniacs, rejoice! Raising Cane’s, the popular fast food chain founded in Louisiana, has finally announced that its first Bay Area location will debut in Oakland at 8430 Edgewater Drive on July 14. as first reported by KRON 4.

For those new to the cult of Cane’s and its self-proclaimed Caniacs, Raising Cane’s restaurants opened in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where its simple menu of tender, seasoned chicken dishes has since grown to 600 stores across the United States. And in the world. In January, SFGATE culture reporter Amanda Bartlett described the delight one can expect once a box of well-seasoned, crispy chicken tenders is opened:

Raising Cane’s Louisiana-style chicken tenders come with crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, and the ever-popular Cane Sauce.

“A typical combo order is served in a greasy take-out box with three compartments, perfect for eating alone in your car,” Bartlett wrote. “You can order your chicken tenders in quantities of three or six (or opt for a chicken sandwich if that’s your thing, I guess). They have a distinctive flavor and I’d say they’re a cut above most fried foods you’d get at Popeye’s or KFC.

Sides for Raising Cane include coleslaw, crinkle fries and a piece of Texas toast sprinkled with sesame seeds. But the real winner: Cane’s sauce. Although most orders come with two containers of the sought-after dressing, many Cane fanatics order extra sides of the creamy orange-hued dip – or else suffer when your last tender has no more. ability to dip more flavor.

“We are beyond excited to bring Raising Cane’s to the city and look forward to sharing our ONE LOVE with the Oakland ‘Caniacs,'” Chris Esteban, restaurant manager for Raising Cane, said in a statement. “Cane’s is launching a wave of expansion in the Bay Area next year and Oakland is the first scheduled, so there’s a lot of excitement around our grand opening. We are looking for an amazing crew to join us in service to this amazing community!

Raising Cane’s serves chicken tenders and not much else, so the chicken sandwich here is really just a bun with a few tenders tossed on top. But guess what? These tenders are breaded and fried in-house, so they have a crunchy crust that breaks apart as you dig. Plus, instead of a boring mayonnaise, the sandwich gets a generous drizzle of Cane Sauce, the restaurant’s own hot and spicy concoction.

The Bay Area is expected to receive two additional locations in Berkeley at 2580 Bancroft Way and Hayward at 26231 Mission Boulevard later in 2022. The new Oakland store will be the 73rd in California and includes a drive-thru and outdoor patio and is only about a 5 minute drive from the Oakland Coliseum. With its grand opening slated for July 14, Caniacs can now make a game plan to line up for a taste of Louisiana-style fried chicken tenders just in time for summer.

According to KRON4, Raising Cane’s will hire about 200 local crew members for its Oakland location, starting at $16 an hour. An ongoing career fair began Thursday, June 3 and runs through July 2 at the Oakland Hilton Airport at 1 Hegenberger Road. Job interviews take place every day from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Raise the cane for more information.
