How Cane’s gives back

How to local companies are giving back


Raising Cane's was founded on the premise of serving communities in five key areas: education, feeding the hungry, pet welfare, active lifestyles and business development and entrepreneurship. At the New Iberia Admiral Doyle location—nicknamed “Da Berrie”—this means partnering with local schools, opening a dog park, sponsoring a batting cage at the Pepperplex and supporting the Chamber's annual banquet.

“There's not a month that we don't at least donate money to certain organizations,” says Aaron Leleux, a New Iberia native who worked his way up from crewmember to assistant general manager. He says this summer Raising Cane's is partnering with local Bible schools and recently gave out almost 3,000 awards for kids who excelled during the school year. “We also had a Teacher Appreciation Day at the end of May where we fed all the teachers in the parish for free,” Leleux adds.
