We now know the exact date you can start driving to Highlands Ranch for a specific chicken fix

The wait is almost over, Raising Cane’s fans.

The wait is almost over, Raising Cane’s fans. The Louisiana-born chain is opening its first metro Denver location July 6.

You can get your chicken finger fix starting at 10 a.m.

And because no chicken finger restaurant opening is complete without an absurd amount of fanfare, Broncos mascot Miles, Avalanche mascot “Bernie” and the Thunder Ridge High School Jazz Band will all be in attendance. A press release also promises “traditional cheers and other high-energy chants … compliments of its 75 newly hired crewmembers.”

But more importantly, the first 20 dine-in customers ages 13 and older will get free food from Raising Cane’s for a year, and the first 100 (of the same description) will get a free Raising Cane’s T-shirt and a voucher for a free box combo with chicken fingers, Texas toast, Cane’s sauce, coleslaw, crinkle-cut fries and a drink.

The restaurant is at 1108 Corporal Max Donahue Lane, and it’s the first of a few coming to the metro area. The company broke ground on a Parker location in April, and it’s also planning restaurants for Centennial and Castle Rock.
