“Y’all, we love that you love The Sandwich. Unfortunately, we’re sold out (for now),” the company tweeted.

The company suggested customers download its app to keep track of the return of the sandwich, which has caused long lines at its franchises and an uproar among fast-food competitors since its Aug. 12 debut.
