What is chicken without sauce? Chick-Fil-A is known for many things. Extremely fast and accurate service, closed on Sundays and with a net worth of $ 15 billion. But now the chain is facing a crisis of epic proportions, something so terrible that this may be the worst we’ve ever experienced, a sauce shortage.
Yes that’s right, the shortage of the famous sauce is just another problem we will face in 2021. For the first time ever, the famous chicken chain limits the amount of sauce you get when you order. Currently they offer one sauce cup per item ordered. This will take place in the chains of 2,600 restaurants in the US. This comes as another blow to the industry, which has already seen a shortage of ketchup and several other items over the summer.
In a recent statement, the company said they are making every effort to address this issue and resolve the issue in a timely manner. But with the demand for ketchup up 25%, we can only imagine that the shortage of Chick-Fil-A sauce could last longer than anyone would like.
On the plus side, the chain doesn’t seem to be affected by the chicken shortage (yes it really is). KFC, Buffalo Wild Wings and Wing Stop all fell victim to the “fried chicken wars” and now pay high prices for chicken, which was and is in high demand. Can you imagine the chicken disappearing too?
However, everything is not lost in these troubled times. If you need more sauce and one cup per item isn’t enough, we have a plan. Right now Chick-Fil-A has its “house sauce” and it’s bottled “Polynesian” sauce to be sold at local retailers like Kroger, Wal-Mart and Target and more (for a full list, check out thechickenwire. buy a full bottle for your house but they donate all the profit to their team members scholarship program So a 160z bottle of sauce for the house and help someone How can you beat that deal
However, I would not be too concerned about this crisis we are facing. Chick-Fil-A is focused on customer service and providing the best product out there. They have assured us that the sauce will come back and they are committed to returning to a time when we can have more than one cup per item.
I don’t know about you, but I need all the sauce I can get. In the meantime, we shouldn’t be doing a human duty and buying the bottles in these times to support your local retailer. Please limit yourself to at least one bottle per person, we don’t want another toilet paper fiasco like we had to do last summer. It doesn’t matter what we do in this together and we will survive. What do you think? Is this the last crisis in the food chain? Is there more to come? This news comes from The Today Show.
