Winner, winner, chicken fingers for lunch and dinner.
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, a Louisiana-based fast-food chain restaurant specializing in chicken fingers, is adding three South Jersey locations, including Cherry Hill, Burlington Township and Marlton.
The Cherry Hill location will be on Route 70 and Haddonfield Road at Garden State Park, while the Marlton location will be at Route 70 near North Cropwell Road, and the Burlington Township location will be at Mount Holly Road (Route 541) and Bromley Boulevard, the company said.
“We are so excited to bring our One Love – crave-able chicken finger meals – to the South Jersey area,” a Raising Cane’s spokesperson said in an email response. “We’ve seen so much enthusiasm for Cane’s in South Jersey already, and we can’t wait to officially become a part of the community!”
Raising Cane’s has two locations in Philadelphia and one set to open in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, in Bucks County, in September.
The chain was founded in 1996 by Todd Graves (and named for his yellow Labrador) and began with one store and has grown to more than 600, including locations in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and more.
The Burlington Township restaurant will be located at The Crossings, at the former Burlington Center Mall, which closed in 2018 and was demolished in 2021. A Maryland firm plans to build three warehouses at the old mall site with a combined 1.9 million square feet. That proposal calls for more than 100,000 square feet of retail development, including shops, restaurants and medical offices in seven buildings.
“The retail development at the former Burlington Center Mall has been a long time coming and we are absolutely thrilled that Raising Cane’s eatery will be one of the first retailers at the new Crossings,” Burlington Township Mayor Pete Green said in an email statement.
The Marlton location is 800 Route 70 West. It is currently a vacant building. The location is near a Republic Bank, an AT&T store, a McDonald’s and other businesses.

While Raising Cane’s is all about chicken fingers, the menu also offers a “sandwich combo” consisting of three chicken fingers on a toasted bun, Cane’s sauce, crinkle-cut fries and a fountain drink. Their box combo offers four chicken fingers, crinkle-cut fries, Cane’s sauce, Texas Toast, coleslaw and a regular drink. Cane’s sauce is described as “tangy with a little bit of spice and full of flavor.”
The restaurant features 100% premium white meat chicken tenderloins that are marinated, hand-battered and cooked to order, the website states. Raising Cane’s offers fresh-squeezed lemonade and freshly brewed sweet tea.
“Our concept is simple and unique … we only have ONE LOVE – quality chicken finger meals,” the Raising Cane’s website states. “At Raising Cane’s you get an exceptionally high-quality product served quickly and conveniently. We can do this because we offer a limited menu.”
