New Republic Sonic to open in 2020, building taking shape

Construction is operating full steam ahead on a new Sonic drive-in restaurant at 790 U.S. Highway 60 in Republic. According to the Major Project Tracker on the city’s website, the new restaurant will have 1,300 square feet of floor space, and will feature an outdoor playground and volleyball court. The restaurant is currently under construction and will be completed sometime next year.
Sonic released this statement from Johnny Jones, Sonic’s vice-president of real estate and development:
“The Sonic Drive-In located at 790 U.S. Highway 60 East in Republic, Mo. is scheduled to open in 2020. The drive-in will feature a drive-through, enhanced technology with Sonic’s digital touchscreens, as well as entertainment.” A Sonic account executive said a more specific date will be provided as the restaurant gets closer to its grand-opening.
The current Sonic location, which sits just in front of the incoming building, will be demolished.
