With a name like Lenard ‘Poulter’ it was inevitable that Lenard would one day open a poultry business! Combining his skills of art and butchering, with his love for food, he developed the unique concept of value-adding to chicken. In 1987 Lenard’s was born!
34 years, hundreds of stores, thousands of products, and millions of happy customers later – we continue to be a leader in the fresh food marketplace. You can find our products at our 28 locally owned stores, and at hundreds of independent supermarkets. Stay tuned as we continue to grow and evolve our stores, stockists and products over the coming years.
At Lenard’s, we use only the best and freshest. In fact, we take it so seriously that we guarantee it. This is why we use 100% Australian healthy barn-raised chickens, with no added hormones or steroids. Our products are handmade fresh using quality, locally sourced, naturally delicious ingredients, to ensure we give you the very best products every time you shop with us. So if you are not satisfied that we are delivering on our promise, we will happily replace your product with another, or refund your money.
From humble beginnings in 1987 in Sunnybank Hills, Brisbane, when the first ‘The Poultry Shop’ opened; to our modern store designs of today – you can expect good-old fashioned service and the most deliciously fresh chicken products, all handmade with love by the people that serve you.
