Raising Cane’s opens Ala Moana Center location

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, known for its “One Love” – quality chicken finger meals – opened its first food court location on Oahu on Monday at Ala Moana Center.

This restaurant marks the fourth Raising Cane’s on Oahu, joining the recently opened Mililani and Hawaii Kai drive-thru restaurants and the original King Street restaurant near the University of Hawaii.

“We are excited to expand our brand with a restaurant at Ala Moana Center as tourism returns to the State,” said General Manager Ashleyann Vergara. “Many visitors and kama’aina are familiar with our crispy made to order chicken fingers, Texas toast, secret recipe Cane’s Sauce, coleslaw, crinkle-cut fries and freshly squeezed lemonade.”

Raising Cane’s always operates with the highest standards of food safety, cleanliness, and health. The Ala Moana Crew, which includes nearly 50 newly hired employees, will concentrate their efforts to ensure safety and convenience for all customers. The Crew will operate behind a plexiglass sneeze guard at the counter, conduct on-going sanitation measures, and each crewmember will be fitted with proper PPE.

“In addition to our focus on chicken fingers, our team is looking forward to serving those in our community,” said Area Director Raymond Yeung. “We will continue to support area schools and organizations in Ala Moana and Waikiki during the Covid-19 crisis and beyond.”

Named for Graves’ yellow Labrador, Raising Cane’s has “One Love”: quality chicken finger meals. It’s signature Box Combo contains four hand battered and freshly fried chicken fingers, Cane’s Texas toast, its secret recipe sauce, coleslaw, crinkle-cut fries and an ice-cold drink with selections like fresh-squeezed lemonade or fresh-brewed iced tea.

Raising Cane’s at Ala Moana Center will be open every day from 10:00am to 8:00pm.
