Tackle hunger with Publix's new trio of Florida NFL sub creations

Publix is making sure you can score on and off the field this NFL season. 

The Florida-based grocery chain is kicking off football season with three all-new subs inspired by the Sunshine State's NFL teams. 

"We worked hard to make the initial recipes unique to each team, with characteristics about that market," Publix Business Development Director of Deli Allen Brown said in a statement. "We wanted to create something special that each team would be proud to call their own."

Furthermore, a crucial aspect of the sub plan was to engage with fans who were celebrating outside the stadiums.

"It’s all about the tailgate," said Publix Corporate Chef Tim Donnelly. 

Here's a look at Publix's newest NFL-inspired offerings:

Miami Dolphins Sub

Jacksonville Jaguars Sub

The Jacksonville Jaguars Sub is a Chicken Tender Sub centered on BBQ flavors. It's topped with coleslaw and barbecue mayo. 

""Customers really love our chicken tender sandwich already and what’s more popular in the South than barbecue?" Donnelly said.
