Meanwhile, the popular Facebook page  posted an interesting read about how a Florida man named Dave Charls claims to have helped invent the popular chicken tender sub.

According to Charls, it was created as far back as 1997.

"We had been buying the tenders and rolls for months separately because the people in the deli REFUSED to ring it up as a sub," according to the Facebook post. "But I finally had a guy on the inside who would do it! The next day he talked his manager into making it a special, put a chalkboard sign out front with it and everything. Then it was such a hit they started doing it at other stores. Thus, the chicken tender pub-sub was born. You're welcome." 

Whether it's true or not is anyone's guess, but do we really care if it is? 

Now if you want to skip the line and get that Pub Sub in your hands fast, you can always order online at and pick it up at your convenience.
