From Law Man to Sandwich Man: NY Subs in Firestone Has New Owner


After retiring from Adams County as a Deputy Sheriff, William Parnell was looking for a change into the retail world. He found NY Subs was for sale at a price he couldn’t pass up. So, after 21 years, the law man is fully vested into the sandwich business located at 8350 Colorado Blvd #110, in Firestone, next door to Blackjack Pizza.
Parnell took over the store on October 8, 2018. The original menu still stands, however since taking over, Parnell has added Sauerkraut, Thousand Island Dressing and Rye Bread to the menu and that means Reuben sandwiches! Cheddar and pepper jack cheeses are now included on the menu and plans for soups are in the near future. As for the restaurant, lighting issues are fixed, and the oven is being replaced.
Parnell shares, “When I took ownership of this shop, the employees were local students. I am happy to say they are still my employees.”
NY Subs busiest time is the lunch crowd including students. The store is now opening at 10am because lunch schedules are starting earlier for most of the customers.

“Meeting the customers,” Parnell says, “Is gratifying after primarily dealing with the criminal side of society.” He says he’s learning a new way of communicating with his clients. He enjoys the day-to-day conversations with good people. Not surprising, but William Parnell also enjoys target shooting, hunting and fishing.
