The Chick-fil-A sauce shortage is the latest industry-wide shortage to hit the U.S. in recent weeks. Chicken wings, ketchup and bubble tea supply have also taken a hit.

There’s another industry-wide shortage on our hands. Chick-fil-A sauce is the next product shortage.

According to a statement provided to The Tennessean, Chick-fil-A said, “Due to industry-wide supply chain disruptions, some Chick-fil-A restaurants are experiencing a shortage of select items, like sauces. We are actively working to make adjustments to solve this issue quickly and apologize to our Guests for any inconvenience.”

According to an email sent to customers and obtained by WTRF, Chick-fil-A said it would be limiting the number of sauces it provides with each order.

Sauces at Chick-fil-A will be limited to one sauce per entree, two sauces per meal and three sauces per 30-count nuggets, according to the email.

Customers can continue to purchase 8 oz. bottles of Chick-fil-A sauce in retail stores like Walmart, Target, Publix and Kroger.

That email was from a single location to its employees, but Chick-fil-A has had to limit the sauces customers can receive because of supply-chain issues, a rep confirmed to the Tennessean. The restaurant asked for customers to be patient with employees who are doing the best they can given the circumstances.

“Due to industry-wide supply chain disruptions, some Chick-fil-A restaurants are experiencing a shortage of select items, like sauces. We are actively working to make adjustments to solve this issue quickly and apologize to our Guests for any inconvenience.”

Chick-fil-A also currently has a banner up on its website and app with a short message regarding the sauce shortage.

Customers can continue to purchase 8 oz. bottles of Chick-fil-A sauce in retail stores like Walmart, Target, Publix and Kroger. Their sauces — Chick-fil-A Sauce, Barbeque, Honey Mustard, Garden Herb Ranch and Polynesian — are also available for purchase on the Chick-fil-A app.

The Chick-fil-A sauce shortage is the latest industry-wide shortage to hit the U.S. in recent weeks. Chicken wings, ketchup and bubble tea supply have also taken a hit.

Although Chick-fil-A’s specialty is, erm, chicken, the company said its chicken supply remains strong and has not been impacted by the nationwide shortage, a public relations spokeswoman said.
