A much requested restaurant is heading to the Gainesville district.
Sonic is planning to open a new location at 10850 Promenade Lane in Manassas this summer.
“As a big fan of SONIC’s handmade Onion Rings and Strawberry Limeade, we are excited to bring SONIC’s signature menu items and personalized experience to Manassas,” Franchisee, Steven Covey stated. “We are looking forward to making a difference in the community.”
More details, Covey added, will be released closer to the grand opening.
On Tuesday, the Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) approved a special use permit for the restaurant.
They voted on it at a meeting held at the McCoart Administration Building in Woodbridge.
Standing on about 1.3 acres, the Sonic Drive-In will be located west of the Balls Ford Road-Sudley Road intersection.
It’s replacing a former Burger King, according to Supervisor Pete Candland.
During the past seven years, the Gainesville district representative has spoken about county government to students taking Civics classes at area schools.
“I always ask the students what would they like to see in the community,” he explained to What’s Up Prince William.
Many have expressed interest in a Sonic Drive-In.
“So, I was very excited when the applicants reached out and let us know that they wanted to open up a Sonic in western Prince William, and I think it’s going to be a great addition to the community,” Candland said. “I know folks are really excited for it to come into our area.”
