Sonic Drive-In prepares to open restaurant in Basehor center

July 2, 2002

Sonic Drive-In will have another location along U.S. Highway 24-40.

The franchise will build another restaurant in the Basehor Shopping Center, 155th Street and 24-40. The Sonic will be built just east of the temporary Community National Bank.

"It's coming along, said Charlie Kraut, who supervises Tonganoxie's Sonic Drive-In. "Hopefully we're going to have things finalized with them in the next week."

Kraut will be the supervising partner of the Basehor location, while, Joe Thompson, Tonganoxie, will be the managing partner.

Groundbreaking is expected later this summer and Kraut hopes the new restaurant will be open in the fall.

"It shouldn't be a problem by the end of September," Kraut said. "But it's just a projection."
