(WTXL) — Starting in April, Florida's favorite chicken restaurant will begin selling bottles of its signature Chick-fil-A sauce and Polynesian sauces.

The 16-ounce bottles will be sold in Florida at Publix, Target, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores for around $3.49.

With every retail purchase of a Bottled Sauce, 100-percent of those profits will be donated to the Chick-fil-A Remarkable Futures Scholarship Initiative, which will award $17 million in scholarships to 6,700 restaurant team members this year.

“Increasingly, our customers are searching for ways to enjoy our brand at home,” Michael Patrick, principal program lead for Chick-fil-A’s Beyond the Restaurant team, told CNN Business in an email.

As well as selling bottles at grocery stores in Florida, some locations of Chick-fil-A will offer 8-ounce bottles of its signature, Polynesian, Barbeque, Honey Mustard and Garden Herb Ranch sauces for purchase staring this month.

Chick-fil-A customers in Florida will also receive 8-ounce bottles of Chick-fil-A, Polynesian, Barbeque, Honey Mustard and Garden Herb Ranch Sauces with their catering order starting in mid-March. S.

The company says the success of this pilot test will help them determine next steps for a possible nationwide rollout of retail sales later this year.
