Sonic Drive-In is arguably a household name — especially in Shawnee, given that it got its start here.

The Shawnee area boasts five of the more than 3,500 Sonic locations coast to coast, the website, at sonicdrivein.com, reads.

The Sonic at 1106 N. Harrison plans to relocate to the new site in a matter of weeks.

In March Kristin Davis, director of communications for Sonic, said the franchisee hoped to open the new drive-in sometime in May, but on Friday she confirmed that its grand opening would likely be early June.

“The date hasn’t been set yet,” she said.

Davis said she may be able to share more information on the date as early as next week.
