In Sedalia, if you want fast food fried chicken, you have the KFC on Limit Ave as well as the Champs Chicken.  You can get chicken strips from Sonic and Dairy Queen, and a Slim Chickens will be opening on Broadway soon.  Warrensburg has a Zaxby's, a Chick-fil-A, and a few Champs.  Well, I want to tell you...we need a Raising Cane's!

The first Raising Cane’s restaurant opened in 1996. With hundreds of locations across the United States, the chain has more than a dozen restaurants in the St. Louis region. They will be opening a location in Wentzville.  Click HERE for that info. This is a very popular fast food chain that has delicious fried chicken and they have been really expanding across the country.

According to the Facebook page of Raising Cane's, they were founded in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Because Raising Cane’s focuses on only one thing – chicken fingers – they are able to do it better than anyone else. It’s what they call ONE LOVE.  They have a location in Columbia Missouri, and I am here to tell you that this place has the best chicken fingers you may ever have.  Their menu link is HERE.

Now Rob and I are in agreement that we think this chain would do quite well in Sedalia or Warrensburg.  Personal opinions aside, because they focus so much on the fingers and their unique dipping sauce, perhaps that is what sets them apart from other chains.  They just opened up their 650th location in the US.  Learn more about who they are by clicking HERE.

Will all of the tailgating that is done at Arrowhead and Mizzou football, this chain seems like a perfect fit.  I would like to see them come here, to go with the KFC and soon-to-be-opened Slim Chickens. The kids will love it, the flavor is great, and I think they would do well in this area.  One of our Townsquare stations in Michigan- Mix 95.7, had one open not that far from their station.  Click HERE for that article to get an idea of what one may look like in our town.  I hope the chain see's this article.  Bring a location to Sedalia/Warrensburg.  You won't be disappointed!
