Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based restaurant company known for its ONE LOVE® – craveable chicken finger meals – is continuing its national partnership with Lemonade Day and is committed to helping our youth build character and empower them to achieve their dreams.
Raising Cane’s is providing a $180,000 sponsorship over three-years to support Lemonade Day’s goals to bring its innovative, youth entrepreneurship program to one million kids annually in all parts of the world with the help of a new digital platform called My Lemonade Day. With the My Lemonade Day app, children everywhere are taught how to start, own and operate their very own business – that quintessential youth small business of a lemonade stand.
Raising Cane’s Founder & CEO Todd Graves helped bring Lemonade Day to Louisiana in 2011. Since then, Raising Cane’s restaurants across the country have been actively involved in supporting and promoting the organization. Once again, Raising Cane’s will be stirring up success for youth entrepreneurs interested in participating in Lemonade Day.
“We are so grateful to Todd and Raising Cane’s for expanding their support of Lemonade Day through a robust three-year partnership,” commented Nicole Cassier-Mason, Lemonade Day National CEO. “The pandemic has underscored the gaps in education and workforce readiness. We are very fortunate to work with the dedicated Raising Cane’s team at corporate and in the local communities to inspire an entrepreneurial spirit in kids across the country.”
Raising Cane’s will offer 1000 free seats to the My Lemonade Day app for budding entrepreneurs who do not live within a Lemonade Day licensed city. The My Lemonade Day app equips kids with a “recipe for sweet success” in the form of animated, interactive lessons that focus on goal setting, business planning, financial management, marketing and sales skills development, product development, customer service, character education, and charitable giving. The app is available for download in English and Spanish and does not require Wi-Fi to use. Parents can register their children at raisingcanes.com/lemonade-day or lemonadeday.org/raisingcanes.
