ICYMI: Raising Cane's bringing the fried chicken fingers to Astor Place

Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers — a fast-food chain specializing in, uh, chicken fingers — is opening an outpost on Astor Place. 

Several business pubs (New York Business Journal and Commercial Observer) reported that the Louisiana-based company signed a 20-year lease for 4,300-square feet on the ground floor at 10 Astor Place at Lafayette Street. 

Raising Cane's has more than 615 restaurants in 32 states ... with an outpost slated for Times Square. 

No. 10 was, until August 2020, a Walgreens.

Thanks to the EVG reader for the tip!

I stopped at one of these places on a trip to New Orleans. For a chain, it was surprisingly good. If we're going to have a chain in the EV, we could do worse than this one.

All I know is that a lot of people are obsessed with this place.

I've reached out to them numerous times about franchising a location in NYC over the past decade. They stopped franchising years ago but apparently agreed that there may be demand in NYC.
