Sold in 1924, the Bouillon Chartier Montparnasse changed names and owners several times, until the group Gérard Joulie bought it in 2003. Already managing a dozen brasseries in Paris such as the Wepler, Au Boeuf Couronné in La Villette, and the bouillon Chartier Montmartre in Rue du Faubourg Montmartre since 2007, the group Joulie returned the restaurant to its original vocation back in 1903: "to offer a meal worthy of the name at a low price".
