The new Raising Cane's off South Fort Hood Street in Killeen is set to open on Sept. 4.

Raising Cane’s in Killeen is set for a grand opening event on Sept. 4 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The chicken finger restaurant, 1035 S. Fort Hood St., is being constructed in the location of two previous fast food restaurants — Sure Fire Tacos and Tortilla Grill and Whataburger.

According to a Facebook post for the grand opening, the newest Cane’s will offer promotions to its customers — appropriately referred to as “Caniacs.”

From 8:30 to 9 a.m., customers aged 13 years and older can enter to win free Cane’s for a year. Only 20 entrants will be selected at random between 9 and 10 a.m. Entrants must be present to win, according to the Facebook page. For a complete list of rules, visit

In addition to the free Cane’s promotion, the first 100 in-store customers aged 13 years and older who buy a combo meal will receive a free T-shirt and a free combo meal on their next visit, according to the Facebook post.

Construction for the Killeen Raising Cane’s began earlier this year. According to a Herald article from March, this is the first Cane’s in Killeen. Other Cane’s opened up in recent years in Copperas Cove, Harker Heights and Temple.
