A second location of the Sonic drive in chain is coming soon to Spokane. This time Sonic will be in North Spokane at 10421 N. Newport Hwy. , which appears to be just north of Hawthorne Rd but I'm not confident enough to say exactly which lot the restaurant is planned on.
This new location however will be a different franchisee then the other 2 locations that have been in the Inland Northwest since the mid 2000's . This location is proposed by the Boise based White Leisure Development Co. , currently Sonic has a location on N. Ruby by Gonzaga , on Hwy. 41 in Post Falls and another to our South in Lewiston.
There is no construction start date or opening date listed on the plans but the building permit has been filed the County and a pre-development conference was held awhile ago. It appears this new Sonic will be like most Sonic locations featuring the drive up stalls and drive through lane. Plans call for a 2308 square foot building with 18 parking stalls, a drive through and 5 parking stalls.
Sonic, which operates their restaurants under the motto " America's Drive In " is an Oklahoma based restaurant chain. They are primarily a fast food style restaurant with over 3500 locations open for business, mostly franchised.
