Chick-fil-A bottled its signature sauces and started selling them on grocery shelves late in 2020. Now the chain is planning the same move with its salad dressings.
Later this month, Chick-fil-A will roll out four of its most popular salad dressings at participating Walmart, Kroger and Meijer stores in greater Cincinnati and across Tennessee, with plans to go national in Spring 2023.
The QSR’s branded Polynesian and Chick-fil-A sauces went national in 2021.
The salad dressings hitting store shelves include Avocado Lime Ranch, Garden Herb Ranch, Creamy Salsa Dressing and Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette. Each is available in a 12-ounce bottle.
“We love that our guests are enjoying our salad dressings in our restaurants and can now share them more easily with family and friends at home,” Michael Garrison, senior director of innovation and new ventures at Chick-fil-A, said in a statement. "We saw excitement from customers around the launch of our bottled sauces in 2020, and we are thrilled to add more retail offerings for our fans while introducing the brand to new customers in our pilot markets."
Chick-fil-A is also rolling out larger bottles of sauce starting this month. Fans of the Chick-fil-A Sauce will be able to purchase 24-ounce bottles at select Kroger and Walmart locations, along with the original 16-ounce size.
When Chick-fil-A sauces first launched, the company announced that 100% of the royalties earned from retail sales would be donated to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Scholarship Initiative to fund educational scholarships for team members. The salad dressing debut was not accompanied by a similar announcement.
