100-percent of Chick-fil-A, Inc. retail profits will go to Team Member Scholarships
ATLANTA (March 11, 2020) – Chick-fil-A announced today that it will begin selling its sauces in bottles as a pilot in Florida, marking the company’s first endeavor into retail sales and a new way to give back to Chick-fil-A restaurant Team Members. Starting this April and May, customers will be able to purchase 16-fluid ounce bottles of Chick-fil-A’s signature Chick-fil-A and Polynesian Sauces in all Florida Publix, Target, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores so they can dip, drizzle and marinate to their delight, right at home.
To elevate the catering experience, Chick-fil-A customers in Florida will receive 8-ounce bottles of Chick-fil-A, Polynesian, Barbeque, Honey Mustard and Garden Herb Ranch Sauces with their catering order starting in mid-March. Sweet & Spicy Sriracha and Zesty Buffalo will still be available in individual packets. The 8-ounce Bottled Sauces are also available for purchase in participating restaurants.
Retail sales of the 16-ounce Bottled Sauces start at $3.49, and with every retail purchase of a Bottled Sauce, 100-percent of Chick-fil-A, Inc. profits will be donated to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures Scholarship Initiative, which will award $17 million in scholarships to 6,700 restaurant Team Members this year. Since 1973, Chick-fil-A has helped nearly 60,000 Team Members pay for college through a total investment of $92 million in scholarships.
“Chick-fil-A Sauce and Polynesian Sauce are our two most popular sauces, so we are extremely excited to offer them at select retail stores outside of the restaurant,” said Michael Patrick, principal program lead, Beyond the Restaurant. “And because our Team Members are truly our ‘secret sauce’ to creating a positive experience in our restaurants, each time a customer purchases a Bottled Sauce at a participating retailer, the Chick-fil-A profits will support Team Members through our scholarship program.”
Guests in Florida are encouraged to contact their local retailer to confirm participation. The success of this pilot will help determine next steps for a possible nationwide rollout of Bottle Sauce retail sales later this year.
