There is a Facebook group for the new Sonic. The creator of the group contacted the VP of Trigo Hospitality, who said that it should be open in late April to early May. There is another post on the page that says the opening date will be April 22. The April-May ballpark seems to be about right.

Glad to see Sonic (as well as Chipotle recently) finally breaking into the GR region. I tell you having spent some significant time now in Columbus, OH there are a lot of chains I would like to see expand into GR.

-White Castle

-Cosi

-Mimi's Cafe

-Tim Hortons

Just to name a few.

This seems like a blast from the past: the days of $1 gas. With so many available parcels south of the freeway, I don't understand why their site acquisition folks don't throw some logic and sustainability into the equation.

The whole concept of Sonic seems unsustainable to me- not just their choice of location- so I completely understand why they want to build where there's more motor traffic. Also, I don't frequent this area too often, but I would imagine there is much more vacant land up towards Comstock Park...but I could be way off.

They don't seem any less sustainable than any other fast food restaurant that is designed around the automobile and built in an area of giant strip malls and a sea of parking lots.
