Raising Cane’s launches ordering app
Raising Cane’s, the national chain specializing in fried chicken tenders, has launched a new mobile app that will allow patrons to order online and skip the drive-through line that usually snakes around the entire perimeter of any given location.
Patrons can order through the app, which is available in the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play, and receive their food faster via takeout or curbside pickup.
“We are always looking for ways to give ‘Caniacs’ the best experience possible,” said Raising Cane’s co-CEO and COO AJ Kumaran. “Our mobile app gives our customers an even faster way to get their hot, delicious chicken fingers, and I have no doubt they are going to love it.”
