Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers Coming To Kiln Creek Area

YORK-The fast-food chicken chain Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers will be opening a location in the Kiln Creek area at the site of the former Ruby Tuesday restaurant.

James W. Noel, Jr., York County’s Economic Development director, confirmed on October 20 that the Ruby Tuesday building at 3150 Kiln Creek Parkway will be demolished for construction of the new Raising Cane’s establishment. A timeline for the project including an opening date for the new restaurant has not been announced.

The Ruby Tuesday restaurant has been vacant for more than a year after the national restaurant chain quietly closed many of its locations in 2020.  Other local Ruby Tuesday locations that closed include one in Hampton, one in Williamsburg, and two on the Southside in Norfolk and Portsmouth.

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, which first opened in 1996, is popular for its chicken finger combo meals. The restaurant currently has locations in Virginia in Norfolk and in Richmond.
