CONFIRMED: Raising Cane’s restaurant chain plans Fayetteville location

Louisiana-based chicken finger restaurant Raising Cane’s has plans to open its first Northwest Arkansas location in Fayetteville.

According to city planning documents, the company will build a 2,274-square-foot restaurant at 3561 N. College Ave. on the southwest corner of Millsap Road where the Wayne Young Law Firm now stands.

Young said he will move his practice to a new location at 1148 Stearns St. sometime in January 2015.

Raising Cane’s, which operates over 200 restaurants in 18 states, focuses on a simple menu featuring fried chicken finger meals, fries, and coleslaw.

Russell Ford, a spokesman for Raising Cane’s, said the restaurant is expected to be open in late spring or early summer 2015.
