Chick-fil-A just dipped into the bottled sauce game
By Cooking Panda
The word is out! Chick-fil-A will begin selling its sauces in bottles… But that catch is, the sauces will only be tested as a pilot in Florida, making this the company’s first shot into penetrating the retail channels.
The sauces will start this April and May, allowing Chick-fil-A fans the opportunity to purchase 16-fluid ounce bottles of Chick-fil-A’s signature Chick-fil-A and Polynesian Sauces in all Florida Publix, Target, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores.
To help with this effort, Chick-fil-A customers in Florida will receive an 8-ounce bottles of Chick-fil-A, Polynesian, Barbeque, Honey Mustard and Garden Herb Ranch Sauces with their catering orders starting in mid-March. Sweet & Spicy Sriracha and Zesty Buffalo will still be available in individual packets. The 8-ounce Bottled Sauces are also available for purchase in participating restaurants.
“Retail sales of the 16-ounce Bottled Sauces start at $3.49, and with every retail purchase of a Bottled Sauce, 100-percent of Chick-fil-A, Inc. profits will be donated to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures Scholarship Initiative, which will award $17 million in scholarships to 6,700 restaurant Team Members this year. Since 1973, Chick-fil-A has helped nearly 60,000 Team Members pay for college through a total investment of $92 million in scholarships.” Chick-fil-A
“Chick-fil-A Sauce and Polynesian Sauce are our two most popular sauces, so we are extremely excited to offer them at select retail stores outside of the restaurant,” said Michael Patrick, principal program lead, Beyond the Restaurant. “And because our Team Members are truly our ‘secret sauce’ to creating a positive experience in our restaurants, each time a customer purchases a Bottled Sauce at a participating retailer, the Chick-fil-A profits will support Team Members through our scholarship program.”
