Sonic Drive-In relocation still planned in Tupelo
Part of that building went to the corner of West Main and Lumpkin streets, but the South Gloster site where it was was essentially cleared to make way for the relocation of the Sonic Drive-In at 1197 S. Gloster.
That was supposed to happen by October, but obviously that hasn’t happened.
So, we checked the Sonic franchise owner, Jaco Foods in Columbus, which said the relocation is still planned.
“Yes, we should be breaking ground within the next 2 months,” was the reply.
The new Sonic was most recently Chips and Salsa, a Mexican restaurant, and before that, it was briefly Peggy’s Place and Guthrie’s Fried Chicken Tenders.
There are three other Sonics in town, on North Gloster , West Main Street and McCullough Boulevard
