Get hand-battered chicken tenders via this new virtual brand available for delivery in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami.
The next time you're craving bite-sized friend chicken bites, reconsider reaching for those same boring frozen chicken nuggests. Not when you can have hot, fresh-fried chicken tenders delivered straight to your door.
Tender Shack – the first virtual brand specializing in fried chicken tenders – is now available in South Florida.
The delivery-only menu is offered to customers in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami via the DoorDash platform.
Tender Shack made its Florida debut in September of 2020 in Tampa, part of the Bloomin' Brands portfolio of brands that include Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, and Aussie Grill. The platform uses kitchens from its nationwide footprint to execute orders, and is expected to expand to 750 cities.
The menu features the brand's premium take on hand-breaded chicken tenders, which are served as large strips or stuffed into sandwiches alongside seasoned fries and cookies.
There's just one decision to make — and it's not easy: Will it be "Dang Good" or "Hot AF"? Customers can choose from two signature seasoning options, be it the traditional-style breading dubbed Dang Good, or the spicy Nashville Hot AF.
Prices range from $9 for a sandwich to $25 for a 20-piece platter. Orders of tenders are also available in three- or five-piece servings, as a combo meal served with fries and a drink. Dip them in any of the brand's five sauces, including classic Tender Shack Sauce, Honey Mustard, Buttermilk Ranch, BBQ, or Buffalo. Additional sauces are 50 cents each, and cookies are $1.
Of course, those same tendies also come in sandwich form — which means Tender Shack even has its own take on the Nashville favorite with its Hot AF crispy chicken tender sandwich. It's served on a brioche bun with housemade pickles, shredded lettuce, and the signature Tender Shack sauce with a side of fries and drink.
To celebrate the brand's expansion, tender-loving foodies will also have a chance to win up to $100 in daily prizes — includnig a $5,000 grand prize — available to all South Florida customers.
Beginning Wednesday, March 10, Tender Shack will launch its "Ten Days of Tendies" giveaway. Daily prizes (with the exception of the grand prize) will be awarded as Amazon gift cards for a total value of $10,000 in prize winnings. To participate, customers can follow the link on their online purchase, or follow the brand on social media via Instagram and Facebook for more details.
"We're obsessed with tenders, and we know our customers are, too," Tender Shack spokesperson Kristy Jobe says. "We're going all-in to deliver the best chicken tenders to all the tendie-loving folks out there."
