Chicken Finger Madness At Raising Cane's Grand Opening In Marlborough

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was deep fried organized chaos at the grand opening of the newest Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers restaurant in Marlborough Wednesday.

The 141 Boston Post Road West location is the fast food chain's third in Massachusetts, with the first opening in Boston in 2009 and the second, also in Boston, opening last month.

Customers antsy to get their hands on the restaurant's signature chicken fingers clogged the inside, while police outside directed traffic as workers delivered food to the dozens of cars lined up in a double lane drive-thru.

"I used to live in Louisiana, I’m very familiar," Sandy told WBZ NewsRadio. "The product is high quality, delicious, love it. The chicken is crunchy, the sauce really makes it."

"It’s just really, really good quality and just dependable," Alex said. "Every couple of years we’d have to go into Boston to get some, so it’s nice to have it around here locally."

"It’s my first time trying it," another woman said. "My daughter’s friend got it yesterday and she said it was really good."

Raising Cane's was originally targeted to open in Marlborough in 2021, but was delayed by a lawsuit involving McDonald's, which argued that traffic for Cane's would be driving through McDonald's driveways. The two restaurants reached a compromise out of court.
