Lenard’s Chicken is Australia’s favourite chicken shop and a leader amongst Australia’s fresh food retailers. Our unique concept of value-adding to fresh chicken is a leader in the marketplace. This concept is one our competitors have tried hard to imitate with little success.
Founded in Brisbane in 1987, Master Butcher Lenard Poulter identified a niche market for value-added chicken products, tailoring meal solutions to customer's busy lifestyles. It soon became clear that for the continued success of the concept, dedicated management was needed. People who felt as passionately about the business as Lenard did, and had a vested interest in seeing the group grow and succeed. The answer was in franchising! The concept proved so successful that Lenard’s Chicken has now grown to over 300 outlets throughout Australia.
Lenard’s Chicken has a world-class franchise support system with dedicated consultants, an innovative and comprehensive hands-on training curriculum, a program of continual product development and improvement, and industry-leading Marketing and Retailing programs.
In over 25 years in operation, the Lenard's Chicken business has never stopped challenging itself to do better for its customers and for its Franchise Owners. In recent years this has seen the launch of two of the most exciting developments for Lenard's Chicken Franchise Owners with the introduction of the Easy Cuts supply system and the Hub and Spoke franchise model. Both represent industry-first innovation and enormous profit potential for our Franchise Owners.
Every day the team at Lenard’s Chicken National Support Office is dedicated to our vision - ‘provide outstanding Franchise Owner support’. We know that the way to grow the business is by providing the systems and support to our Franchise Owners to assist them to be successful and profitable - supporting them in delivering our Brand Promise to our customers. Often that means going the extra mile, and ultimately, that is how we put more Lenard’s Chicken on more tables, every day.
