Tenant Description

Raising Cane’s is a quick service restaurant specializing in chicken fingers.

Raising Cane’s is an interesting and attractive asset for net lease investors. According to QSR Magazine, Raising Cane’s had the 3rd highest Average Sales per Unit among the top 50 fast food chains, at over $3m Average Sales per Unit. This expansion means the guarantee behind the leases are getting stronger. The leases Cane’s tends to sign relieve investors of any landlord responsibilities and have rental increases throughout the base term. This leaves the investor with a hassle-free investment with a built-in hedge against inflation.

Raising Cane’s was founded by Todd Graves in 1996 in Baton Rouge, LA. Today, they have expanded to over 700 locations in 28 states, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE with more under construction. Cane’s menu is very narrow, serving only chicken fingers. The idea of a single focus restaurant made it difficult to get a loan. Graves took jobs as a boilermaker in the L.A. refinery and fisherman with Sockeye Salmon in Alaska to raise money for the first restaurant. Once the doors opened, the concept became popular and the chain was born.
