TUCSON, Ariz. - Raising Cane's plans to open a drive-thru near the University of Arizona.

According to city building permit records, the company was approved Feb.15 to build a 3,760 square foot restaurant at 2604 E. Speedway. It's the former home of Speedway Self Serve gas station.

The restaurant, which carries the "one love" slogan," is slated to open in the summer and will hire 75 crew members.

“We love Tucson, so we couldn’t be more excited to bring local Caniacs a second Raising Cane’s restaurant to get their chicken finger fix,” said Raising Cane's Regional Leader Jason Zwerin, in a statement. “We have found the perfect location close to the University of Arizona, so our next step will be to assemble the perfect crew. Along with sharing our 'one love' with everyone in the area, our team will be dedicated to getting more involved with schools and organizations throughout the community.”

Raising Cane's opened its first Tucson location in November 2015 at 6352 E. Broadway.

The Baton Rouge, La.-based restaurant chain specializes in chicken fingers. There are 15 locations in the Phoenix area, but currently just the one location in Tucson.
