Chick-fil-A fans can be passionate about their sauces.
Whether Chick-fil-A sauce, Polynesian or one of the others is your favorite, we've all said at one point, "it sure would be nice if I could buy this in stores."
The dream will soo be a reality as the chicken franchise will begin selling its sauces in bottles as a pilot at Florida grocery stores.
Starting this April and May, customers will be able 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.
Sales will also benefit a good cause, as the company says the program will be used as a way to give back to Chick-fil-A restaurant Team Members.
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 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.”
