Chick-fil-A Is Launching New Grocery Items With Walmart, Kroger, and Meijer
Chick-fil-A's sauces are beloved by many, with at-home recreations and adaptations sprawling the internet's recipe archives. And while the chain already brought its magic to the grocery store shelves in 2020 with the launch of its sauces in retail, it's taking things a step further by bottling several other condiments for purchase.
The company just announced that customers will soon be able to find their favorite Chick-fil-A salad dressings at select locations of Walmart, Kroger, and Meijer.
"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," says Michael Garrison, senior director of innovation and new ventures at Chick-fil-A. "We've worked hard with our supplier and retail partners to help bring these Chick-fil-A flavors into people's homes for their own salads, marinades, and other recipes."
The salad dressing pilot program will first include grocery stores in the greater Cincinnati area and across Tennessee, while the rest of the country will see them on shelves in the spring of 2023.
The dressings will come in four flavors: Avocado Lime Ranch, Garden Herb Ranch, Creamy Salsa Dressing, and Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette. They will all be sold in 12-ounce bottles.
Chick-fil-A sauce fans will also find the larger, 24-fluid-ounce bottles of the brand's signature sauce at participating Kroger and Walmart locations nationwide later this month.
"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," Garrison added.
And those hitting up Chick-fil-A's restaurants will also find some novelties on the menu. In recent weeks, the chicken purveyor launched several new items, from new breakfast bites to a new chicken sandwich.
