Fun fact: Raising Cane was originally a dog. This chicken-fingers and wings emporium was named after the founder's much-loved yellow Lab, Raising Cane. The original RC has since moved on to the Big Doghouse in the Sky, but RC2, another yellow Lab, is part of company lore as well as a certified therapy dog who visits hospitals.
