According to the Clark County Auditor’s Office, three parcels of land including 1329-1347 W. First St. was sold from SFL Properties LLC to Springfield Real Estate Holdings LLC, a company affiliated with Raising Cane’s, for $870,000 on April 24.
Dietz said the company bought additional parcels behind the shopping center for $126,000.
“It’s my understanding that they are going to be where that (the shopping center) is,” Dietz said. “I think they are going to demo that and build new.”
Raising Cane’s has been searching for property in the Springfield-market for “quite a while,” Dietz said. “They couldn’t find a property that would work for them.”

Dietz added that there were several different brokers that put in “a lot of time and effort” to get Raising Cane’s into the Springfield area.
“Great work to the brokers that worked on it,” Dietz said. “I’m sure Raising Cane’s is going to be doing a lot of great work in the next couple months.”
Dietz said he did not know when the restaurant is planning to open.
“It’s good to see new,” Dietz said. “It’s good to see new that people want and I can tell you that people are constantly asking me when we are going to get a Raising Cane’s. Now it’s happening.”
He added that the construction of Raising Cane’s will be “a huge positive for the community.”
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers has two nearby locations in Beavercreek and Centerville. A third location in Huber Heights is in construction.
