“It means so much to receive such positive feedback from our crew, and even more so in this time of COVID-19,” Raising Cane’s founder and co-CEO Todd Graves said in a release. “Throughout the pandemic, our crew stepped up to the challenges. We are one of only a few restaurants on the list because it’s so hard to operate during a pandemic – but our crew made it happen! And I’m so grateful for them and this recognition.”
Raising Cane’s officials touted their company’s “fast-paced environment, fun culture, flexible schedules and growth opportunities.”
An employee’s review left on the Glassdoor web site last fall by a Cincinnati-area employee praised the company’s “good crew and work culture (and) profit-share bonuses every quarter,”
MIchelle Webster — recruiting director for RCO Limited, Raising Cane’s franchisee that operates all of the Louisiana-based chain’s restaurants in southwest Ohio — told this news outlet Monday that the Glassdoor recognition “means a lot because it comes voluntarily from our crewmembers, and we were one of only a few restaurants on the list. ... Our Culture is the best, and we are all about working hard while having fun.”
