It’s something Fargo-Moorhead area residents seem to long for almost as much as a flood-free spring – a SONIC Drive-In.
When a recent Forum Trade Talk column invited readers to email Business Reporter Marino Eccher about restaurant rumors they wanted him to check out, the vast majority were inquiries about SONIC.
A SONIC spokeswoman told me the company does plan to open a restaurant in Fargo, but it’s still too soon to speculate on an opening date or location.
She said a SONIC might open in Fargo in 2012.
There are more than 3,500 SONIC Drive-In locations across the country, but the closest to Fargo is 190 miles away in Elk River, Minn.
The drive-in fast food chain offers burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and an array of slushes, limeades, and ice cream treats.
