Sonic Officially Opens

Some of the workers hired at Sonic, mostly local residents
Cutting the ribbon! Business Partners' Executive Director Keith McCormick,
Ald. Cappleman, and the Wolken family, Sonic's franchisees

This morning Sonic officially opened in Uptown, with Grand Opening ceremonies, free t-shirts, and a line of customers waiting to get in at 11am.  It's the first urban design Sonic has ever done, catering more than usual to walk-up and dine-in customers, since 45% of Uptown residents are car-free and the Wilson el's just a block away.  There's a dining room, an outdoor patio, and a fireplace.  The free wi-fi didn't work very well for us, but there's time for them to get it right. Welcome, Sonic! Time for a Green Apple Slush....
