A Louisianna-based fast-food chain specializing in chicken is expanding in the west and recently opened a location in Utah. The company has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing in the nation, and southern Idaho would be a strategic win for the restaurant.

Some of you might have heard about Utah-native, and superstar singer and songwriter Post Malone designing the newest location of Raising Cane's. The fast-food chain recently expanded to Midvale, which is just 220 miles southeast of Twin Falls.

Raising Cane's, founded by businessman Todd Graves, is one of the fastest-growing chicken chains in America, according to mashed.com. They have over 30 locations across the U.S., including Utah, Nevada, California, and Oregon.

They are known for chicken fingers, chicken sandwiches, crinkle-cut fries, Texas toast, coleslaw, and tea drinks. Their menu also offers tailgate orders to take to outdoor events. Raising Cane's is expected to open more locations in the west in 2023 and 2024, and the Magic Valley should be considered due to its close proximity to Boise and Salt Lake City.

Post Malone, who is deemed the most famous Utah resident by many, was asked to join owner Todd Graves at the recent grand opening of the northern Utah restaurant. What if one of the most famous Idaho celebrities, Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad, joined Graves in cutting the ribbon at a southern Idaho location?

I think it would be a win-win for all parties involved. You can never have too much good chicken.
