100% of Chick-fil-A, Inc. profits from third-party retail sales will support Team Member Scholarships
ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Chick-fil-A® announced today that bottles of its signature sauces will soon be available for purchase at retailers nationwide, with 100% of the royalties Chick-fil-A, Inc. receives from third-party retail sales supporting scholarships for Chick-fil-A restaurant Team Members. Starting mid-November, customers will be able to purchase 16-ounce bottles of the company's signature Chick-fil-A and Polynesian Sauces at participating retailers, including Publix, Kroger, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi, with a nationwide rollout scheduled for early 2021.
Retail sales of the 16-ounce bottled sauces start around $3.49, and customers are encouraged to check with their local retailer on availability. With every retail store purchase of a 16-ounce bottled sauce, all royalties Chick-fil-A, Inc. receives will be donated to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures™ Scholarship Initiative. Since 1970, Chick-fil-A has helped nearly 60,000 Team Members pay for their education through a total investment of $92 million in scholarships, with $17 million in scholarships being awarded to 6,700 restaurant Team Members in 47 states and Canada just this year.
"Chick-fil-A Sauce and Polynesian Sauce were offered as part of a pilot program in select Florida retailers earlier this year, and we're excited to expand availability of our two most beloved sauces across the country," said L.J. Yankosky, senior director of Innovation & New Ventures at Chick-fil-A. "Restaurant Team Members go above and beyond every day to care for our guests and the communities they serve. We're thrilled that every 16-ounce bottled sauce purchased from a participating retailer will help provide additional scholarship opportunities to Team Members, who are a key ingredient to our restaurant experience."
In addition to offering the bottled sauces at select retailers, 8-ounce bottles of signature Chick-fil-A sauces are available for purchase at participating restaurants.* Bottled sauce gift sets are also available at select restaurants, while supplies last. Customers should check the Chick-fil-A App or contact their local Chick-fil-A restaurant to confirm availability.
Bottled sauces are available alongside other Chick-fil-A menu items under the Chick-fil-A Safe Service guidelines, which remain a top priority at restaurants as the holidays approach. The brand is committed to providing the high-quality food and service guests have come to know and expect from Chick-fil-A, while working to ensure the health and well-being of Operators, Team Members and guests.
