PENNSYLVANIA — Pittsburgh, like most cities, has its share of fried chicken chain restaurants – KFC, Chick-Fil-A and Popeyes, to name a few.
But now another very specialized fried chicken entity is ready to flock to the Steel City, Channel 11′s news exchange partners at TribLIVE reported.
Raising Cane’s chicken tenders is planning to open its first restaurants in Pennsylvania in 2022 and in the Pittsburgh region by the end of the year or in early 2023. An exact location has not been revealed.
Raising Cane’s is a swiftly growing fast food entity with corporate offices in Dallas and Baton Rouge and nearly 600 restaurants in 31 states. While it has yet to open a location in Pennsylvania it has nearly 60 restaurants in Ohio, according to Raising Cane’s vice president Dustin Shearer, a Johnstown native.
“We’re super focused. We do one thing better than anybody else can – quality chicken finger meals,” said Shearer. “The food is amazing. The centerpiece of our entrée is how many chicken fingers would you like.”
