Some Sonic Drive-In fans had a moment of panic when the restaurant at 8612 W. Maple, which is just east of Tyler, recently closed. It’s not permanent, though.
“It is closed right now, but just for a refresh,” says Jason Acock, spokesman for the Oklahoma City-based chain.
The “refresh” actually is a complete rebuild from the slab up.
“They’re basically going to create a new building for it,” Acock says.
He says a number of Sonics will be rebuilt, though he can’t yet say where else that may include around the area.
“It’s just part of … trying to make the Wichita locations better.”
