Years established

From humble beginnings in Sunnybank Hills, Brisbane in 1987 with the first 'The Poultry Shop', Lenard and his team took to the road in 1989 and set up shop in major cities and country towns around Australia. Over 30 years and plenty of stores later - our passion for providing the best chicken meals remains. From our famous Chicken Kiev and the freshest of fresh cuts, to an ever-evolving range of oven-ready meals, we are constantly finding ways to make life easier.

Training and Support

Lenard’s has a number of effective systems and programs in place to support franchise partners.

Franchisees will have assistance from the National Support Office, who will be guided extensively in the initial stages, with a 4–6-week training program, as well as operational ongoing support. The National Support Office will also be able to help with any supplier issues. After 12 months, the training will be more focused on profit-maximizing rather than standard training.
