Fast-food fans in New Milford will be excited to hear that Sonic is coming to town.

Road signs announcing that a new Sonic is on its way have been posted at the Route 7 Travel Plaza, which is currently being built at the corner of Route 7 and Still River Road. The building has sat empty for several years, and previously housed a Webster Bank branch. The Travel Plaza will also include a Sunoco gas station.

There was talk of a Sonic in New Milford a couple of years ago when an Arby's location closed, but that building very quickly became a Wendy's franchise.

Sonic has three additional Connecticut Locations, in Wallingford, Milford and Manchester. The drive-in restaurant chain's menu boasts burgers, chicken, hot dogs and breakfast burritos. Their frozen slush drinks are also very popular. Sonic joins McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Wendy's, Five Guys, Subway and Panera Bread in the battle for New Milford's fast food dollars.
