Chick-fil-A apologizes for the company-wide sauce shortage


In the words of the immortal Roderick “Gucci Mane” Davis: “If you don’t have the sauce, you’ve lost.”

Chick-fil-A might learn this the hard way, now that the chain is running out of popular dipping sauces.

The company announced in a statement on Wednesday that industry-wide supply chain problems affect “essentially every aspect of the economy”. As a result, the chain has been reduced to a shortage of select items including sauces. To combat the shortage, Chick-fil-A will only serve one sauce cup per item ordered in most US restaurants.

“We are actively working to make adjustments to resolve this issue quickly and we apologize to our guests for the inconvenience,” the company said.

Chick-fil-A isn’t the only chain hit by the sauce shortage. The problem appears to be a labor shortage production problem that is not related to a specific fast food chain or store. In fact, companies like Heinz had to increase production by 25 to curb a recent drought in ketchup packages.

On the other hand, Chick-fil-A has proven that it’s bulletproof when it comes to the current “chicken war” of fast food. The craze for chicken sandwiches and products has weighed on poultry production, leading chains to “pay high prices” for chicken. But Chick-fil-A’s calling card has been the chicken sandwich since the company was founded. So since it is true and not new, Chick-fil-A’s poultry supply has not been affected.
