Raising Cane’s Prepares to Make Its Olathe Debut

and Hire More Than 70 Crewmembers

Popular brand known for unrelenting focus on Crew, Culture and quality chicken finger meals to hire new Crewmembers to help safely serve its ONE LOVE® to the Community starting Oct. 27

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers – nationally ranked as a top place to work annually – is preparing to open its first Olathe Restaurant and is ready to hire a great local Crew to join its cool culture, fast and friendly service and all-embracing commitment to Community involvement.

Raising Cane’s plans to hire an additional 70 Crewmembers in the Kansas City metro area – including 77 new Crewmembers from management to hourly Crew positions at its first Olathe Restaurant located at 13710 S. Blackbob Road.

Raising Cane’s is a great place to work for a number of reasons, including its fun environment in cool, comfortable uniforms. Plus, Crewmembers never have to worry about working on a holiday because Raising Cane’s is closed on all major holidays – and not just Christmas and Thanksgiving, but also Memorial Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Labor Day. Raising Cane’s even closes 30 minutes after kickoff on Super Bowl Sunday to allow its Crew to enjoy the game with family and friends! Crewmembers are also guaranteed flexible schedules, including for school. 

“At Raising Cane’s, it all starts with the way we treat our Crew,” said Restaurant Leader Jaafar Hariri. “We know that if we can provide people a great place to work, where they can have fun while working hard, they’ll treat our Customers better and they’ll consider starting or building their careers at Cane’s. We are committed to taking care of our Crew, and during this pandemic Raising Cane’s has maintained our pledge of ‘NO CREW LEFT BEHIND™,’ avoiding furloughs and layoffs for all of our Crewmembers. I’m excited about the exceptional Crew that will join us in serving our ONE LOVE to the Olathe Community.”

In addition to competitive pay, paid time off and benefits for hourly Crew, including medical, dental and vision, Raising Cane’s provides bi-annual merit increases to all hourly Crewmembers. Raising Cane’s also invests in the future of its Crew, providing Tuition Assistance to hourly managers, ongoing career development and advancement opportunities – highlighted by a 70% internal promotion rate.

For those in Restaurant Leader positions, each has the chance to participate in Raising Cane’s industry-leading Restaurant Partner Program. This program is designed to provide a path for Raising Cane’s Restaurant Leaders to attain a level of compensation and quality of life unmatched in the restaurant industry based on base salary and bonuses to exceed $100,000 annually, along with business-building incentives offering the ability to accumulate a net worth of more than $1 million within 15 years.

Candidates interested in various positions at the new Olathe Restaurant should apply at WorkAtCanes.com. Applicants can expect to be contacted within 48 hours of applying.

Throughout the current crisis, the popular brand with a cult-like following has opened 15 new restaurants and hired nearly 8,000 new Crewmembers since the beginning of March, under the leadership of Founder & Co-CEO Todd Graves and Co-CEO & COO AJ Kumaran.

Raising Cane’s unrelenting focus on doing what’s right for its Crew, Customers and Communities ensures that its Restaurants are operating with the highest standards of food safety, cleanliness and health. Along with wearing masks and gloves, socially distancing and continuously sanitizing surfaces throughout the restaurant, Crews are now “block scheduled” to limit on-site interaction each workday.
