History: The East Brainerd location opened in 2006, but the franchise has been around since it opened in Memphis, Tenn., in 1998. With a focus on fresh, quality ingredients, Lenny's now has more than 100 locations nationwide, and recently celebrated the sale of its 1 millionth sub sandwich.
"As a brand, we feel extremely excited and humbled to be a part of the communities that serve our signature sandwiches and that our most loyal guests have embraced the brand to achieve this great milestone," Lenny's Marketing Manager Ranee Huff said.
Favorite order: Hands-down, the Mile High is the best order, Huff said. Filled with turkey and provolone cheese, the sandwich is a classic.
More to come: With its 1 millionth sub sale comes the celebration of a second local location on Brainerd Road, which doesn't yet have an opening date but should soon, Huff said.
Address: Lenny's current location is at 1913 Gunbarrel Road. The one coming to Brainerd Road should be open later this year.
