Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Follow Me on Friday as I welcome a new restaurant that just opened across from Loyola University, home of the Missouri Valley Conference champion Loyola Ramblers basketball team! Join me at Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, 6568 N. Sheridan (just north of the Loyola Red Line station) this Friday, March 16th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Raising Cane’s is a Louisiana-based quick-service restaurant, which focuses on a simple menu item–its “One Love” quality chicken fingers. The Loyola location is their first restaurant in Chicago. Join me in welcoming Raising Cane’s to Chicago and Rogers Park and enjoy a complementary sampler of chicken fingers, fries and dipping sauce. Wash it down with a free sweet tea or your choice of a variety of soft drinks. Owner Todd Graves and a fellow student wrote a business plan for Raising Cane’s while enrolled in a business writing course at Louisiana State University. The paper received the lowest grade in the class. They fared no better when they presented their idea to numerous potential investors, all of whom rejected it out of hand. Undaunted, Todd raised his own capital by working as a boilermaker in Louisiana and California oil refineries and then as a commercial sockeye salmon fisherman in Alaska. Todd finally saved enough money to open his first Raising Cane’s in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1996. It was such a huge success that Todd soon began opening other Raising Canes. Over the next 20 years, Todd expanded the company to more than 350 restaurants in 24 states and six countries. Raising Cane’s is now making Rogers Park its first Chicago home. Its business culture fits well with the Rogers Park spirit of giving back. The company is actively involved in the communities in which they are located, donating to schools, food banks, pet welfare and active lifestyle programs. In all, Raising Cane’s gives over 25% of its earnings back to its communities. Rasing Cane’s General Manager Gabe Cervera will be on hand to greet us Friday. “We’re excited to create an entirely new following of ‘Caniacs’ in Chicago,” he says. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to open our first Chicago store in Rogers Park!” Bring your appetite and join me this Friday! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.
