BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- Raising Cane’s has been recognized by Glassdoor as one of the ‘Best Places To Work’, ranked 89 out of the nation.

“We work hard and we have fun,” Matt Massey, Raising Cane’s Regional VP of Operations said. “It’s very humbling because this is based on voluntary feedback.”

The restaurant was the only company from Louisiana to make the Glassdoor list.

This is the third year in a row Cane’s has earned a spot as one of the best places to work, but Massey says this year is special.

“This has been a challenging time and the fact that they [employees] feel like we as a company rose to the occasion is a very good feeling,” he said.

Throughout the pandemic the company has done their job by giving back. Cane’s has sold and made face mask with proceeds going back into the community and to first responders.

Massey says one of their biggest accomplishments this past year is keeping Cane’s members safe and employed.

“We never furloughed any employees at all,” he said. “Because of their hard work we actually hired 8,000 crew members and able to distribute five million dollars in thank you bonuses to our wonderful crews.”

While this recognition is awarding, Massey wants to remind others the pandemic has been rough for those in the restaurant industry.

“We had to get creative,” he said. “We knew safety had to be paramount. They have done everything we have asked, one to keep each other safe and to keep our customers safe.”

Cane’s ranking is based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews of former and current Crewmembers shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year, according to Canes.

“I just want to say thank you to all our members, we are not only grateful I know our customers are too,” Massey said.
