The sauces will start about $3.49 a bottle, and 100% proceeds from those sales will contribute to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures Scholarship Initiative. Since 1970, that effort has helped nearly 60,000 Chick-fil-A employees pay for their education.

“We’re thrilled that every 16-ounce bottled sauce purchased from a participating retailer will help provide additional scholarship opportunities to Team Members, who are a key ingredient to our restaurant experience," L.J.

Customers can check with their local grocers to see if they’re offering the sauces. In the meantime, bottled sauces, in 8-ounce sizes, are available for purchase at participating restaurants. As the holiday season hits, the restaurant chain is also doling out bottled sauce gift sets for a limited time.
