Sonic Drive-In Eyes Major Expansion in the Boston Area
A chain of drive-ins that currently has four locations in the Boston area could increase that number tenfold over the next several years, with a major expansion being planned for the region.
The Boston Business Journal is reporting that Sonic Drive-In is looking to open a total of 40 locations in and around Boston over the course of the next five years, with the article also mentioning that the expansion may include 25 to 30 additional outlets across New England during that time period as well. Currently, only three shops can be found in Eastern Massachusetts, including ones in Lawrence, Peabody, and Wilmington.
The Oklahoma-based Sonic, which first started out in the 1950s, is the largest chain of drive-in restaurants in the United States. Its website can be found at https://www.sonicdrivein.com/
