I can't believe how fast that place went up and opened.

Earlier this month, I was at the Kent campus and took this pic in the Student Center. A Raising Cane's hiring sign happened to be up at the time. So, I guess they were already hiring and training these past few weeks.

Traffic was bad outside with a long line going through the drive-thru but it wasn't too bad inside. Also a long line outside to get Denzel Ward's autograph.

I don't see these guys doing well outside of college towns in the long run. Basically very greasy chicken fingers with buttered bread and crinkle fries, that to me is a kiddie meal. The future in the restaurant biz is fast casual with a menu that also offers healthy alternatives, that is something that Raising Cane's doesn't have.

I'm convinced there are two key components of the restaurant biz, marketing and service. Anything today, that markets your restaurant with beef, steak, fried, is a death wish.

People love to eat steaks, and food that's bad for us, but the perception is you can't advertise it. I'll give a great example. Olive Garden. Very plain, healthy sounding restaurant name. Their main dishes involve pastas and cheese. Yes, they have salads but they sell alot of the other unhealthier items.

The second is service, it doesn't have to be great, just not bad. Bad service spreads like a virus and if your restaurant ever gets that tag, you may as well close the doors for good.

Seems like every time I turn around there's a new 5 Guys, Wahlburgers, Shake Shack, Smashburger or similar place opening and the parking lots at Longhorn Steakhouse, Texas Roadhouse and Outback Steakhouse always seem full. The masses eat what they like. They may cut back the next day of just pretend they're eating healthy, but they're still eating red meat.

Agreed. That's why you never see McDonalds or Coca Cola advertise...

Went there on Saturday.

There was nobody there. Thought it was closed at first.

Chicken is ok. At what comes down to 2 dollars a chicken tender though? Crazy.

The fries, toast and cole slaw are basically trash.

I would imagine if they tried to open within sight of a Chick-filA they would be out of business in a month.

We won't be back.
