Raising Cane’s opening first Pittsburgh-area location

SOUTH FAYETTE, Pa. — The popular chicken chain Raising Cane’s is opening its first location in the Pittsburgh area.

The fast-food restaurant is set to open in early 2023 at The Piazza in South Fayette.

Burns Scalo Real Estate announced Wednesday in a release that it signed a lease with Raising Cane’s, making South Fayette one of over 20 new locations they will be opening in Pennsylvania.

“We’re excited that Raising Cane’s is joining The Piazza’s growing roster of tenants,” James Scalo, CEO of Burns Scalo Real Estate, said in a release. “Raising Cane’s will be a key addition to the center’s collection of restaurants and experiences.”

Raising Cane’s will join Primanti Bros. and Firebirds Wood Fired Grill at The Piazza, which are both scheduled to open this fall.

“We are so excited to continue our growth across Pennsylvania by opening our doors to this awesome South Fayette location. We can’t wait to plant our roots in the area and get started serving our Pittsburgh Caniacs very soon!” said Dustin Shearer, Raising Cane’s Vice President of Restaurants.
