Soldier has attack plan for new sub shopMarch 01, 2013
In addition to protecting his country,
Army Maj. Cody R. Roberson has taken on
another mission — being the
proud owner of a new Lenny's Sub
Shop, the fourth in San Antonio.
He opened the latest store in the franchise
about four months ago at 1015 Rittiman
Road, Suite 113.
"Having been in
the military for over
21 years, retirement
was getting closer
on the horizon," said
Roberson, who hails
from Arlington. "I wanted to have something
to fall back on when I got ready to re-enter
civilian life. I did a lot of homework in
order to find the right opportunity for me.
One of the reasons I chose to invest in a
Lenny's franchise is because I like the way
Lenny's promotes a family environment."
The sub shop is located on the southeast
corner of Rittiman and Harry Wurzbach
Highway in the renovated Sam Houston
Center, close to Fort Sam Houston
and Terrell Hills. The 2,000-squarefoot
space has room for up to 110
patrons, and there is an outdoor patio
nestled under a covered breezeway.
The Lenny's concept differs from
most so-called "fast-food" restaurants
in a couple of ways. For one, there are
no trash cans visible. Employees bring
the meal to your table, which they
have already bussed and cleaned.
In addition, the hot subs are cooked
fresh, and all the meats for both the cold
and hot sandwiches are not sliced until
the order is placed. The selections are
piled high on fresh bread baked daily.
For even more fun, check out the hightech
drink-dispensing machine, which offers
131 choices. Bring the kids so they can
help figure out how to operate the device,
which has a front panel that resembles the
controls of the military aircraft Roberson
is involved with in his "other job."
The major plans to open a total
of five shops, with a new one
scheduled to debut each year.
Roberson is also a professional
bass fisherman and president of
the ArmyBassAnglers LLC.
Lenny's Sub Shop is open 10:30 a.m.-8:30
p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11:30
a.m to 6:30 p.m. Sunday. For more, call
