Poulet was co-founded in 1979 by Marilyn Rinzler and Bruce Aidells. Inspired by Marilyn who was a single parent of two, Poulet began as take-out only, designed for people who didn’t have the time to cook and wanted to take home fresh, healthy, gourmet food. Poulet has always had a simple philosophy: Food is very basic, let’s enjoy it.
