Our Franchises Au Coq Rotisserie


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.

Rotisserie 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. 

OUR Concept


At Au Coq, we don’t stop at chicken! We’ve perfected our slow-cooking technique and we serve ribs. Get the best of both worlds with our chicken and ribs combos, served with house coleslaw and fries.

We invite you to try our unique poutine with crinkle cut fries topped with our delicious roasted chicken and homemade gravy. Our menu showcases our chicken in so many ways that you are sure to want more! The club sandwich for cold weather lovers and the hot chicken sandwich for comfort. Opt for a healthy and tasty meal by choosing one of our simple fresh salads or chicken wraps.


We are proud to specialize in take-out and quick delivery service. Dining never has to be complicated!
