Seekonk Chick-fil-A Owner Announces Exciting News
As you might remember, my family hit the jackpot last fall when the owner of Chick-fil-A was nice enough to drop off a case of their world-famous Chick-fil-A sauce.
Seekonk owner Jonas Williams called into the Rock and Fox Show this morning with some breaking news. Knowing how much we love the signature Chick-fil-A sauces, Williams called to let me know that the company will be testing the waters of retail by selling its sauces in grocery stores.
Listen to the audio here:
A lot of people have been waiting for this moment, and it is finally happening.
So far, the test drive will only include two of the sauces: Chick-fil-A sauce and Polynesian sauce, both of which are "fan favorites," according to Williams.
The sauces are expected to hit grocery store shelves in April; however, for the time being, they will only be available in Florida. If you are traveling down to Florida, or have friends or family there, the sauces can be found in all Publix, Target, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores.
All of the proceeds will go towards the company's scholarship program that awards money to team members. So buying a jar of the sauce will not only bring your homemade chicken to the next level, it will support future students with college tuition payments.
Williams is optimistic that with strong sales, the sauces will be available nationwide before the end of the year.
Before we let Williams go, however, we did ask him the most pressing question on everyone's mind here on the SouthCoast: we asked him about the rumors there is a Chick-fil-A being built near Wareham Crossing. Williams gave a chuckle and said he "could not confirm nor deny" the rumors. His tone made me hopeful that the rumors might be true!
