Sonic Drive-In to (Eventually) Open in Stoughton
A chain of drive-ins that has three locations in Eastern Massachusetts is adding a fourth, though plans for this new one have been delayed.
The Stoughton Journal is reporting that Sonic Drive-In is looking to open on Route 138, moving into the space in the Stoughton Town Center plaza where a location of Friendly's had been. The article indicates that this location of the chain has been a long time in the making, and that its plans to open by the end of this year no longer seem realistic, with a possible opening coming in the second quarter of 2016 instead if all goes well. Once it does open, the new Sonic will join others in Lawrence, Peabody, and Wilmington.
[October 20 update: A new article in the Stoughton Journal says that Sonic has received final approval from the town to open in the Stoughton Town Center plaza, with the shop hoping to be up and running sometime between mid-May and mid-June of 2016.]
[October 5, 2016 update: The Enterprise states that the new location of Sonic plans to have its grand opening on Friday, October 28.]

[October 31 update: A Facebook post from the eatery confirms that the new Sonic opens in Stoughton today.]
