Sonic waited all through this miserably cold winter to complete work on the grounds of its first Chicago store, at Kenmore and Wilson. Now that the ground has finally thawed, they're wasting no time. What was mud and gravel just a few days ago is now poured cement. Every day there's something new.
The double drive-thru lanes are ready
So are the carhop-serviced parking spots
Work on the two curb cuts on Wilson is underway
After everything is complete, there will be city inspections and probably some adjustments. No one is even hinting at an opening date yet. But at the rate construction is happening, you know Sonic is eager to get things going and start serving customers.
