Raising Cane's - Project by O'Brien Architects

thoughtful design

for a space where "the crew" can test new ideas.

Raising Cane’s is a Baton Rouge, LA-based restaurant company known for its great crew, cool culture, and active community involvement. The company’s vision is “to grow restaurants all over the world and be the brand for quality chicken finger meals...”
Our O’Brien team worked with Raising Cane’s on a 2020 multi-phase development for the Dallas-area support office including expansion of the building, interior renovation, a parking garage, courtyard, and test kitchen.

Raising Cane's

Plano, TX
Size: 125,000 SF
The first phase of the Raising Cane’s Dallas office included demolition of the existing parking area, preparation of the site for a new structure, and the construction of a 370-car precast concrete parking garage. The second phase entailed the construction of a new three-story steel framed tilt-up concrete office expansion that tied into the north elevation of the existing structure. Next, the team went to work on the new building’s interior class-A finishes, including smart conference rooms, a monumental wood clad staircase with custom railings, and Teknion sliding glass walls.

In the latter part of the build-out phase, the team added a new employee engagement courtyard between the new garage and office expansion. This courtyard includes brick pavers, turf, custom light stanchions, IPE wood decking, a fire feature, and a water feature.
Seventy employees are working in the new office, which was designed to include a replica Raising Cane’s restaurant inside the kitchen and dining area. The 24,000 square-foot space also includes training facilities, meeting rooms, private offices, and common areas for employees.

The Dallas office is part of a companywide expansion in which Raising Cane’s is hoping to grow its brand nationally, while also adding 40 restaurants in the DFW area over the course of the next several years.
