Our franchises Au Coq rôtisseries


From humble beginnings, a family of Quebec poultry farmers launched their first rotisserie chicken restaurant in 1960. A Quebec institution, Rénald Benny grew the family business, which has continued to evolve over the last 50 years. Honouring family tradition, we continue to follow the secret recipes passed down through the generations. We offer the juiciest chicken with irresistible golden, caramelized colour, and tenderness in every bite. Our commitment to serving the best quality chicken at affordable prices is why our loyal customers continue to choose Au Coq.

Au Coq was founded by a family who values the importance of sharing a meal with loved ones. We created a quick service concept for you to grab dinner on the go, making it easy to provide a quality meal from our family to yours. We serve locally-sourced, grain fed poultry, air chilled, never frozen. Our commitment to quality is why families love the delicious flavours of our slow roasted chicken. 

We pride ourselves on specializing in fast takeout and delivery service. Dinner never has to be complicated; our locations are designed to make takeout simple and easy, always with a smile from our Au Coq team. As our family continues to grow, new locations offer fast casual dining areas, with comfortable, welcoming ambiance. Come in and have your favorite Au Coq combo with a beer or one of our select wines to complement your meal!

We invite you to try our unique crinkle-cut fry poutine, topped with our delicious rotisserie chicken and homemade gravy. Our menu showcases our chicken in so many ways, you are sure to come back for more. The club sandwich is loaded with our delicious chicken, the hot chicken sandwich is a hearty comfort food choice. Keep it healthy and flavourful with one of our simple fresh salads or chicken wraps.

At Au Coq we don’t stop at chicken, we have perfected our slow cooking technique and serve tender, juicy ribs. Get the best of both with our chicken and rib combos, served with homemade coleslaw and fries.
