The City of Menifee honored Raising Cane’s as its November Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program.

Since his college days, Todd Graves knew he wanted to open a fried chicken restaurant. To make this dream a reality, Graves raised funds by temporarily moving to the west coast where he performed side jobs that would allow him to save money.

Once he gathered enough capital to support his restaurant dream, Graves opened the first Raising Cane’s in 1996. The restaurant specializes in hand-battered and cooked-to-order flaky chicken strips with its famous sides.

Raising Cane’s has grown to more than 70 locations in California alone. Raising Cane’s officially called Menifee home in 2018.

The Raising Cane’s team is known for their generous and active support of the communities in which they open for business. The company prides itself on supporting a wide variety of local and national organizations. Menifee has experienced this generosity through donations throughout the community and participation in a variety of city events. 

Some of the organizations the restaurant has worked with include Menifee’s Chamber of Commerce, Boys and Girls Club of Inland Valley, as well as local schools, sports teams, and non-profit organizations.

“Raising Cane’s has been a valuable addition to our city and their kind team has made such a positive influence on the community,” District 3 Councilwoman Lesa Sobek said. “Thank you for extending your ‘one love’ to Menifee and for always going above the call of business.”
