New Sonic Drive-In opens, complete with playscape area, volleyball court
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
Carhops rushed out the doors with the classic brown bags and slushies as cars filled the drive-in stations at the new Sonic on West Court Street.
The new location, located at 968 W. Court St., opened for business after four months of construction.
“It feels amazing. Everything is almost going as smooth as we want, but it’s going wonderful,” Sonic Drive-In part owner Megan Esparza said. “We’re happy to be able to be open again and we’re super excited about the system. We love the system, we love the playground and volleyball court. We love it all so far.”
After Esparza took over the old spot, located across the street at 961 W. Court St., nearly five years ago, she said the franchise group believed they needed to expand.
So when the two lots across the street, formerly Charmain’s Hairstyling, became available the group took advantage of the opportunity, she said.
After four months of construction, the new space now features a volleyball court, playscape, the traditional drive-up spaces and a drive-thru.
The court and the playscape are also available for families or friends to use for parties or get-togethers at no cost, Esparza said.
