Raising Cane’s to make Springfield debut

Posted online

Fast-food chain Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is coming to Springfield.

The Springfield restaurant is expected to open this summer at a development underway at the northeast corner of Campbell Avenue and Sunshine Street, diagonal to Bass Pro Shops, said Jason Pullman, co-owner of developer East Sunshine Property Group LLC.

He said a corporate-owned Raising Cane’s would operate out of a 3,500-square-foot free-standing building planned at the corner of the development.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana-based Raising Cane's features a menu comprising chicken fingers, fries and coleslaw. Founded in 1996, the chain has nearly 500 restaurants, including locations on both coasts, according to its website. It has 20 Missouri restaurants in the Kansas City and St. Louis areas.

On the South Campbell Avenue development site in Springfield, Pullman said a 7,500-square-foot shopping center is expected to be complete this month or next. AT&T, Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care and Missouri Title Loans Inc. have signed on as tenants, he said. Springfield Business Journal previously reported Base Construction & Management LLC is general contractor for the retail center, with a $1 million estimated cost, per a city building permit.

Pullman said Raising Cane’s is using a separate general contractor, though he was unsure which one. A building permit lists Louisiana-based development consultant CSRS Inc., which has worked with Raising Cane’s on other restaurant projects. Officials with Raising Cane’s could not be reached for comment by deadline.
