Sonic Drive-In to Open in Medford
A chain of drive-in restaurants that opened its first two locations in the Boston area over the past year and a half is going to be opening a third spot, and this one will be its closest location to the city.
According to The Medford Transcript and Wicked Local, a new Sonic Drive-In is going to be opening at the site of the former KISS 108 FM building on the Revere Beach Parkway in Medford sometime in 2011. An entirely new building--which will be about 2,000 square feet in size--will be constructed for the eatery at the site, which is located near Wellington Circle.
Sonic Drive-In first opened last summer on Route 1 in Peabody, with a second location opening over the past spring on Route 38 in Wilmington (another Sonic had been planned for Marlborough, but that one has apparently fallen through). The chain features such quick-food items as burgers, hot dogs, chili cheese tots, shakes, and limeade. Sonic is currently the largest chain of drive-in restaurants in the country.
The address for the upcoming Sonic in Medford will be: Sonic Drive-In, 99 Revere Beach Parkway Medford, MA, 02155.
