It’s our pleasure.
Soon, you’ll no longer have to bear the awkward – albeit justified – request for extra sauce packets at the Chick-Fil-A counter. Seriously: two packets of Polynesian is not going to cut it, Susan. Thankfully, you’ll soon be able to buy 16-oz bottles worth of the good stuff from supermarkets. [Featured image: @candyhunting]
Chick-Fil-A is hitting the retail market for the first time ever. Back in March, the chicken chain announced their plans to launch a pilot phase release in Florida, with later plans to expand their release nationwide. At that time, lucky citizens of the Sunshine State were also be able to buy 8-oz bottles of their beloved sauces — including its Chick-Fil-A, Polynesian, Barbeque, Honey Mustard, and Garden Herb Ranch — on the shelves of Publix, Target, Walmart, and Winn-Dixie. Each bottle will cost $3.49 a pop at specified locations throughout the state.
In a recent announcement, the company is finally expanding the release of their Chick-Fil-A and Polynesian sauces to a number of southern states, including Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and, of course, Georgia.
“We’re excited to expand availability of our two most beloved sauces across the country,” said Chick-Fil-A Senior Director, L.J. Yankowsky.
In mid November, Georgians will be able to find the chicken franchise’s coveted sauces in 16-oz bottles at Krogers, Publix, Walmarts, and Winn-Dixies across the state.

Earlier this year, their signature Chick-Fil-A sauce was ranked as the second best fast food chain sauce in the country, losing out only to Culver’s Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Sauce.
While the roll-out is to occur solely in the aforementioned states the chain is expected to distribute their sauces by the bottle nationwide in 2021.
