Progress On Sonic In Elk River

For anyone following the only Sonic in Minnesota the walls are up at the Elk River Sonic. So far the Burger Time has been razed and concrete block walls are up. Looking at the building you wouldn't yet know that it's a Sonic as it does not have that traditional look you'd expect. Once more construction on this Minnesota Sonic is completed it will have a nice modern look that you can likley expect to see in many other Sonic locations in Minnesota. Interesting that Elk River was chosen as the first Sonic restaurant for Minnesota. Perhaps it's that the old Burger Time was a block from 169 and cabin folk will likley stop for the novelty. It could be that for the same reasons that Elk River cannot get sit down restaurants to locate that fast food restaurants do quite well in Elk River. Whatever the reason, hopefully the Elk River Sonic will be successful we we can see more Sonic restaurants in Minnesota.
