We do one thing: quality chicken tenders. This specialization allows us to focus, to do things better and more efficiently.
Doing one thing means higher quality, faster service, and better value. Our limited menu makes this possible.
Our commitment to one thing means we never compromise on quality, cut corners, or clutter our menu with things that don't fit.
We always wanted to fry chicken. Something simple, tasty, happy, comforting, high quality, and good value. Something that appealed to families, young and old. Chicken tenders were the answer.
Chicken tenders get a bad rap. They don't get the respect they deserve. They're relegated to pub food and kids menus. We thought we could do better. So we set up shop inside a restaurant in Oakville and started cooking. The rest is history.
Although we are inspired by the decades of chicken frying history in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, we are a uniquely Canadian fried chicken joint. Poulette is 100% Canadian owned and operated.
Poulette is French for "young chicken", which is fun, because we're young chickens in this business. Poulette also relates to frying. Many years ago, only young chickens were suitable for frying.
Why French? It's a nod to Canada's connection to fried chicken in the South. Did you know that the Acadians ("Cajuns") that settled in Louisiana were French Canadians?
We operate on five simple principles that anyone can understand.
Food should be simple, tasty, consistent, and made from scratch with whole ingredients.
Service should be fast, friendly, tidy, attentive, and knowledgeable.
Everything and everybody should be clean and well maintained.
Portions should be generous. Prices should be fair. Products should be available in value sizes.
5. The Golden Rule
Treat others as you want to be treated. Including guests, employees, suppliers, and community.
