We've been hearing reports of Sonic coming to Syracuse for a while, and now we have target opening dates. The first Sonic coming to Syracuse has a new target opening date of Late August, early September 2015.

If all goes as planned, according to the franchise owner, we could enjoy some delicious shakes and burgers. Syracuse.com reports that the plans are in place, but it depends on approval:

"A lot depends on the planning board and town,'' said franchise owner Fran DeSimone of Rochester, who will operate the Sonics in the CNY region. "So it's very hard to say for sure, but we would like to be open by early September.""

Currently it appears Sonic will be at the former car wash building at 3170 Erie Blvd East. The second Sonic to be built in CNY will be in the town of Clay near Mattydale. Currently we do not know of a location for that restaurant yet.

When more information is provided, we will be happy to update you.
