Sentinel staff report– Despite national supply chain issues and labor shortages, Raising Cane’s says it’s on track to open its newest restaurant in Citrus Heights next month.
A spokesman for the company said Friday that the restaurant, located in front of Hobby Lobby on Greenback Lane, is still on schedule to open December 12. He said hiring of 200 crew members for the location is also “on track.”
The Louisiana-based restaurant chain boasts over 500 locations nationally and is known for their limited menu and appeal to college-age demographics. Popular items are chicken fingers, Texas toast and cole slaw.
According to plans approved by the city’s Planning Commission, the restaurant is just over 3,000-square-feet in size and will include 48 seats inside and 23 seats on a patio.
On Friday, fresh paving could be seen on the drive-thru’s dual lanes, and finishing touches were being made by crews inside the restaurant. Landscaping had yet to be planted, and a portion of the drive-thru near the pickup window was still unpaved.
Job postings on www.workatcanes.com show the Citrus Heights location is currently hiring cooks, cashiers, and crew members, with starting pay listed at $15 per hour. A shift manager is also being sought.
