Chick-fil-A has a sauce shortage

Chick-fil-A is facing a shortage of its beloved "Chick-fil-A Sauce" at locations across the U.S.

In many of the 2,600 restaurants, employees have been told they are only allowed to give out one sauce packet per food item ordered.

"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,” a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said.

The shortage in the sauce is due to supply chain issues and labor shortages that are affecting many fast-food chains in the country.

Although sauces are limited, Chick-fil-A has not been affected by the chicken shortage that other companies are currently experiencing. 

The shortages at Chick-fil-A come as some areas of the country are dealing with gas shortages following a ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline. Charlotte, for instance, has seen 71 percent of gas stations report they are out of fuel.
