The new restaurant will kick off its grand opening festivities at 8:30 a.m., with a “Lucky 20” drawing to award 20 customers ages 13 and older Free Cane’s for a Year! North Little Rock’s new Raising Cane’s will accept entries from 8:30-9 a.m., with the Lucky 20 drawing between 9-10 a.m. Caniacs must be present to win.

To add to the excitement, North Little Rock High School cheerleaders and band members will be there to pump up the crowd, and there will be a live radio remote with KLAL Alice 107.7 FM from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith will also be in attendance.

We are looking forward to getting involved with local organizations and can’t wait to become an integral part of the community.”

An official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce begins at 9 a.m. First-time visitors will be treated to traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the location in unique Cane’s fashion, compliments of its 90 newly hired crewmembers.
