Additionally, the first 100 dine-in customers, ages 13 and older, to purchase a combo meal will receive a free limited-edition Cane's t-shirt and a voucher for a free Box Combo that may be redeemed during a subsequent visit.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our ONE LOVE to Terrell and to be the 50th Raising Cane’s in Dallas-Fort Worth,” stated General Manager Scott Koller. “We’ve assembled an incredible crew and the new restaurant is in a great location, right across from Buc-ee’s. We look forward to getting more involved and becoming an integral part of the community.”

Koller and his crew recently volunteered their time at the Terrell Share Center — highlighting Raising Cane's culture of taking an active involvement in local communities.

“We had a lot of fun volunteering with the Terrell Share Center for Senior Citizen’s Day,” Koller stated. “The Share Center does an incredible job at providing the opportunity for a brighter future for people throughout Kaufman County. We are honored to have had the opportunity to volunteer our time with such a great charitable organization.”
