Chick-fil-A faces sauce shortage
Chick-fil-A is limiting the number of sauces it’s giving out to customers as the chain faces a shortage.
The chicken chain said the shortage is due to industry-wide supply chain issues. At many of its 2,600 US locations, Chick-fil-A will only be giving customers one or two dipping sauces per item ordered.
“We are actively working to make adjustments to solve this issue quickly and apologize to our guests for any inconvenience,” the company said in a statement.
Fast food chains have been hit especially hard in recent months with both a labor shortage and supply chain issues. Recently, ketchup packets have come in short supply due to a heightened demand.
Major chains, including KFC, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Wingstop, are paying “steep prices” for chicken as well, and suppliers are having trouble keeping up with demand because of difficulties attracting workers.
Luckily for Chick-fil-A, the company says it hasn’t been affected by the chicken shortage.
