Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers will add a second Colorado Springs location next month and has started hiring 95 employees to staff it.
The new location will open Nov. 7 in the Powers Pointe shopping center, southwest of Powers Boulevard and Barnes Road on the city’s northeast side. The opening follows the May 29 launch of Louisiana-based Raising Cane’s first Springs location in a small retail center southeast of Academy Boulevard and Agora Point on the city’s north side.
Job seekers are asked to apply online at www.raisingcanesjobs.com; search for “Colorado Springs” and select the Powers and Barnes location. Raising Cane’s is hiring employees for the restaurant’s front counter, lobby and drive-thru areas, along with kitchen workers who prepare food.
Raising Cane’s will hire workers through Oct. 27; interviews will take place at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, 3431 Cinema Point in the First & Main Town Center.
Raising Cane’s plans a third area restaurant at 4530 Hilton Parkway, northwest of Interstate 25 and Garden of the Gods Road on the northwest side of the city. The company is remodeling a former Taco Bueno building at the site. The opening date of the third location isn’t known.
