Todd Graves, the founder of Louisiana born restaurant chain Raising Cane's, is putting his business success and money to work for other restaurants in a new docuseries!

There's no arguing the success that Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers restaurants have enjoyed. After all, they're up to 500 restaurants now in 28 states and abroad. The chicken is always good (fresh, never frozen), the 'Cane's' secret recipe sauce is on point, and the Texas toast, fries, and coleslaw never disappoint. There's something to be said for specializing in something and concentrating on doing it well! When you add in how much Cane's helps to serve the communities they're in, you have a winning combination. Having LSU's Football Coach Ed Orgeron as a spokesperson doesn't hurt either!

Now, Graves is taking his recipe for success on the road for a new docuseries called Restaurant Recovery. The premise of the show is to help independent restaurants that have been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and breathe new life into the eateries and their communities. Graves will travel to 20 different cities for 20 initial episodes including New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Dallas. And don't think he'll just be a pretty face imparting his restaurant wisdom. Graves is actually injecting his own time and hard-earned money into the project, investing $2,000,000 for the relief and recovery effort, spending $100,000 per restaurant. That's commitment.

Graves is no stranger to the small screen, having previously appeared on Food Court Wars and Secret Millionaire. If you have an eatery that could use Todd's help, submit an application for your restaurant to be considered here.
