Sonic To Build 2nd WNY Location on Transit Rd. in Amherst

The local Sonic franchisee has signed a lease with Target and is waiting for approvals before it can get the ball rolling, according to Bill McGowan, chief financial officer at Sonic Buffalo, which owns the rights to local Sonic development. Early plans call for the second location to be almost identical to the current one at 3601 Union Road in Cheektowaga. It will have indoor seating, as well as 12 exterior stalls and a double drive-thru. The restaurant will cost more than $2 million to build. Sonic Buffalo partnered with Evans Bank to finance construction.

The  new store is expected to open this spring.  ]]>
