Raising Cane’s founder and CEO Todd Graves is ranked No. 28 among Glassdoor’s Top 100 CEOs.
Glassdoor, the anonymous website where employees can review company management, put together its list by tallying employer’s positive approval ratings from workers.
Graves, who opened the first Raising Cane’s near LSU’s campus on Highland Road in 1996, had 95% positive reviews. Cane’s was also ranked No. 96 on Glassdoor’s Top 100 Best Places to Work in 2019. Cane’s has been rapidly expanding—more recently in the Middle East—and has no plans to slow down. In 2016, Graves said he planned to grow his business from 255 restaurants to 600 by the end of 2020 and is set to soon open its 500th restaurant.
On Wednesday, to celebrate the ranking, Graves’ staff threw a surprise party at the headquarters with members of the Southern University marching band, says Canes spokesperson Julie Perrault.
