Raising Cane’s founder and CEO Todd Graves will lead the ninth webcast in a series presented by Arkansas Business throughout 2021. 

The “21st Century Business Forum,” sponsored by CHI St. Vincent, is a monthly webcast featuring authors, entrepreneurs and key leaders in business and sports. It’s hosted by author Jon Gordon, who has written on leadership, sales and teamwork.

The show aims to inform and inspire Arkansas business leaders — executives, managers and entrepreneurs — with engaging interviews that yield practical advice for leading organizations and achieving success.

The 40-minute episode, featuring an interview with Graves, will broadcast at 11 a.m. Sept. 8.

Graves has grown his restaurant chain to more than 500 locations globally, and it is continually recognized for its unique business model, culture, community involvement and customer satisfaction. Graves was named one of the Top 100 CEOs in the U.S. by Glassdoor and an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

He and Raising Cane’s have given more than 25% of the company’s profits back to the communities where the restaurants operate, a practice that earned the company the SCORE Award for Outstanding Socially Progressive Business.

Graves is the host of the new docuseries “Restaurant Recovery” on Discovery+, helping restaurateurs across the country overcome the struggles of operating during a pandemic. 

He has also made appearances on Fox’s “Secret Millionaire,” Animal Planet’s “Treehouse Masters” and the Food Network’s “Food Court Wars.”
