The restaurant will put two sauces in Florida stores as a test this April.
Soon you may be able to use your favorite Chick-fil-A sauces at home without hoarding packets from the restaurant. The chicken sandwich chain is launching a pilot program in Florida with the hope of rolling it out across the country. Two sauces will be available in 16-ounce bottles—signature and Polynesian. Additional flavors will be available in Florida Chick-fil-A restaurants. All proceeds from the sale of the bottles will go to pay for scholarships for Chick-fil-A employees.
The company is starting with its most popular sauces to gauge the interest of the public. Chick-fil-A will award $17 million in scholarships this year.
“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.”
Each 16-ounce bottle of Chick-fil-A sauce will retail for $3.49 and can be found in Florida Target, Walmart, Publix, and Winn-Dixie stores. Customers that order catering will be able to get 8-ounce bottles of Barbecue, Honey Mustard, or Garden Herb Ranch with their orders (sorry, no Sweet and Spicy Sriracha or Zesty Buffalo yet!). Walk-in customers will also be able to buy the 8-ounce bottles.
If this pilot program is successful, Chick-fil-A hopes to have the sauces in stores across the country. Chick-fil-A has more than 2,500 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada.
