(CNN) – The shortage of supply chains has just increased: Chick-fil-A is putting a limit on the number of sauces being served to customers due to limited inventory.
The Chicken Chain said on Wednesday that industry-wide problems in the supply chain, which affect essentially all aspects of the economy, have resulted in a “shortage of select items” that Chick-fil-A sells, including sauces.

In response, Chick-fil-A only gives its customers one dip sauce cup per item ordered in many of its 2,600 US restaurants.
“We are actively working to make adjustments to resolve this issue quickly and apologize to our guests for any inconvenience,” the company said in a statement.
The chain said it was working to fix the sauce supply issues as soon as possible.

Fast food restaurants have been particularly hard hit by labor shortages and supply chain problems in recent months. For example, ketchup parcels have become scarce due to increased demand. Heinz recently announced a 25% increase in production.
The fried chicken wars put a strain on the poultry population. Big chains, including KFC, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Wingstop, are paying “high prices” for chicken, and suppliers are struggling to maintain demand as it is difficult to attract workers.
Fortunately for Chick-fil-A, the company says it is not affected by the chicken shortage.
