Chick-fil-A Is FINALLY Bottling Up Its Wildly Popular Sauces
Chick-fil-A is known for their deeply delicious chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, but their true champion is the sauce. No, really! Their sauces make everything they touch just a little more magical. And as a result, many food bloggers have tried to recreate the tangy-sweet sauces at home, but they never taste quite the same.
Good thing for us, there’s going to be a new way to enjoy the sauces at home: Chick-fil-A, is finally getting into the grocery business with bottled sauces, so we can enjoy them whenever we want! Starting in April, you can buy 16-ounce bottles of Signature (the signature sauce is a blend of honey mustard and barbecue sauce) and Polynesian sauces at Publix, Target, Walmart, and Winn-Dixie stores for around $3.49 a bottle.
The catch? To start, the sauces will only be available in Florida (I know, I KNOW, it’s a bummer).
It’s the first time that Chick-fil-A will sell its products for retail purchase in stores, which is a huge step towards reaching people in another way that doesn’t depend on going into the restaurant for some food. “We’re seeing a blurring of lines between all food channels,” Michael Patrick, principal program lead for Chick-fil-A’s Beyond the Restaurant team, told CNN Business in an email.
Other restaurant chains like The Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, IHOP, and more already do sell their products, like sauces and syrups, in retail locations, so it makes sense that Chick-fil-A would hop on board this bigger trend. “Our customers love our sauces,” Patrick added. “Chick-fil-A Sauce and Polynesian Sauce are our two most popular sauces, which is why these flavors are leading the way.”
Chick-fil-A’s bottled sauces will also be available as a part of catering orders in Florida, and will include Barbeque, Honey Mustard, and Garden Herb Ranch Sauces in 8-ounce bottles. And get this: All profits from the bottle sales will go to Chick-fil-A’s scholarship fund for employees, and that will stay true even if (and let’s hope when) the bottles go nationwide.
