BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Raising Cane’s located in downtown Baton Rouge will be closing its doors permanently after failing to reach a leasing agreement.

CEO Todd Graves released the following statement:

As much as we loved serving the Downtown Baton Rouge community, we were unable to reach an agreement on the lease of our Third Street restaurant. We continue to grow in the Greater Baton Rouge area and are currently hiring 100 Crewmembers for our first West Baton Rouge restaurant set to open in March on LA-1 in front of Walmart in Port Allen. All of our downtown Crew were offered jobs at our other area locations.
