Chick-fil-A isn’t the only restaurant chain suffering from supply chain shortages. 

Moe’s Southwest Grill, McAllister’s Deli, and sandwich chain Schlotzsky’s have all announced that some items may be temporarily unavailable because of the supply chain shortages.

The news comes after Heinz warned that it is having a shortage of ketchup packets due to supply chain issues.

The chicken industry also says it is having trouble with chicken supplies nationwide that could bring skyrocketing prices.

There have been shortages of flour from the great baking boom early on during quarantine when many Americans tried baking sourdough bread during the pandemic.

Pepperoni was also in short supply with more people ordering pizza during stay-at-home orders.

And more people consuming alcohol and buying beverages for at-home consumption led to a global shortage of aluminum cans.
