Raising Cane’s, a popular Louisiana-based chain known for its premium chicken tenderloins, made its KSA debut with the opening of its first restaurant in Al Bustan Centre in Riyadh. The opening comes as part of the company’s broader expansion plans across the GCC and wider Middle Eastern region.
Operated in KSA by Alshaya International Trading Co., the new store is Raising Cane’s fifth outlet in the Middle East, and follows the opening of three stores in Kuwait and one in Bahrain.

There is a growing demand in the region for premium chicken and outstanding service in restaurants and we plan to deliver a fantastic experience to every one of our Riyadh customers at Raising Cane’s.”
