Bel Air Sonic Opening Pushed Back 2 Days

The Sonic Drive-In is expected to open April 14.

The opening of the Bel Air Sonic Drive-In has been pushed back for several days.

Franchise owner Rick Joshi told Patch the much-anticipated Bel Air location is on target to open soon, however, the opening date has to April 14.

This is not the first time the eatery's opening has been delayed. The business was initially expected to , but a series of setbacks delayed construction and pushed the opening into 2012.

Joshi told Patch in November that . By the time the matter of utility lines was resolved, the winter months had set in, causing further delay, he said.

Joshi said the building and canopy are completed and the next step is preparing the ground. "Everything’s pretty much done except for the asphalt," he said.

Employee training is expected to begin April 10 with a test run for family and friends of employees taking place in the days preceding the April 14 opening, Joshi said.

"I’m ready, because we have a couple of other stores, but this one here is in a better area," Joshi said, comparing growing Bel Air to the less populated area surrounding an Eastern Shore location.

@EMMS... LOL at being critical. Questioning the value of multiple articles related to a fast food restaurant opening isn't being critical, it's legitimate. I don't care if thirty 17 year olds are being hired at minimum wage or not, it's nothing more than marketing fluff. I don't think that the Patch is being compensated for these types of articles, but, they AND you have been conditioned by those in 'local commerce' to report upon the grand arrival of cherry limeades as newsworthy. It's just not, no matter how many apologists rush to the corporate machine's defense. I don't expect content on the Patch to be recognized with Peabody's anytime soon, but, how about some legitimate content covering topics like the rampant prescription drug problem in the county, or the rift between the county teacher's union and the superintendent, or the growing gridlock because of the insatiable appetite to develop every square inch of the county with Royal Farms, McDonald's, and Walmarts to offset advertisements like this one for Sonic? Get back to your Prozac and McMuffins, sheep!

How DARE you, Balto Boob? I prefer Zoloft!

You tell him, Dadof2. Balto Bub, if I wanted serious news I would consult The Dagger, Washington Post, New York Times. Maybe some of us like to read fluff. Have you considered that?! What's important to you may not be what's important to us, and vice-versa. In the marketplace of ideas, yours isn't the only meaningful one. Us sheep gotta have something to read, you know, while were being sedated.

Clearly everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But, there really isn't room for name calling and accusations. Move along Bob. Maybe you could devote your time and energy to something more newsworthy then. If you are so concerned about the topics you mentioned, I challenge you to put your energies into something that will make a difference in the community. There are plenty of organizations that would appreciate a voice like yours. Best of luck to you.
