According to Facebook page 'Are Publix Chicken Tender Subs On Sale?,' a Florida man named Dave Charls helped invent the popular chicken tender sub. He says it was created in 1997, as he was buying tenders and rolls separately for months. One day, the store rung it up as a sub and a manager decided to make it into a special.

We are not 100 percent sure if this story is true but either way, we are happy to have the Publix Chicken Tender sub.
