As if gas shortages on the East Coast this week weren’t enough, Chick-fil-A has some rather devastating news for its devoted consumers.
The chain announced on Wednesday that it’s facing shortages of its beloved Chick-fil-A sauce due to supply chain disruptions facing restaurants nationwide. “Due to industrywide supply chain shortages, some items, like sauces, may be unavailable,” the company said in a statement. “We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.”
Naturally, the masses who have created a cult-like love around Chick-fil-A’s beloved sauce took to the internet to air their grievances.

First, the markets started to slide.
Then lumber reached ATH.
Then oil pipelines are hacked and a shortage begins.
And now you’re telling me Chick-fil-A is out of sauce?????
This is blasphemy.

The supply chain shortages facing Chick-fil-A are not unique, as the pandemic continues to disrupt shipping times, costs and demand for product.
Some customers have already reported massive drive-thru lines as hopeful customers rush to get their hands on their beloved dipping sauce before it’s seemingly gone.
