Heads up, your favourite chicken sandwich may or may not be available on your next run to Chick-fil-A. The fast-food chain has posted a notice on its website saying that some items may not be available at its Canadian restaurants because of supply chain issues.
“Due to global supply chain challenges, some menu items may be unavailable or prepared differently,” states its website. “We apologize for the inconvenience.”
A representative of Chick-fil-A Canada told Curiocity that while the chain doesn’t have an official statement to provide, Canadian restaurants are experiencing intermittent challenges with some of their menu items.

The rep does note that there aren’t any widespread shortages of key items, so rest assured that your favourite chicken sandwich is probably safe. However, individual restaurants may be impacted at different times.
This comes as the chain prepares to open its newest location at Queen St West and Spadina Ave early next month, which will be its third restaurant in Toronto and its sixth in Ontario. Chick-fil-A plans to open 20 more locations all over the country by 2025.
Supply chain issues have been plaguing the restaurant industry lately, and not even McDonald’s is immune to shortages.
Last month’s flooding in the Port of Vancouver caused a shortage of french fries at McDonald’s restaurants in Japan, and supply chain issues in the U.S. are causing hash browns to go out of stock at locations in Taiwan.
After what the past two years have put us through, please don’t make us substitute our fries for a salad.
