HAMPTON-A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers new location in Hampton.

Raising Cane’s announced earlier this year plans to open two new locations on the Peninsula. The Hampton restaurant is opening at 1044 West Mercury Blvd., in the space where Casual Male XL used to be located.

In addition to the new location on Mercury Boulevard in Hampton, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, which is based out of Louisiana, will open an establishment on the site of the former Ruby Tuesday on Kiln Creek Parkway in York County. Ruby Tuesday was demolished to make room for the new restaurant. A new location in Norfolk is also in the works.

Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers was co- founded more than two decades ago by Todd Graves, who came up with the concept during his time as a college student. His dream was to build a restaurant that served high-quality chicken finger meals and nothing else.

The chain now has locations across the globe, including roughly half a dozen restaurants in Virginia.

Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ribbon cutting event on Thursday, November 17 at 9am for the Hampton location. The event is free and open to the public.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
