Yesterday, we told you that Sonic Drive-In would not be coming to Staten Island. Despite months of speculation, the chain released a statement saying it had no plans to open a location in the area in the immediate future. However, an SILive reader claims that Sonic has been posting ads online seeking potential employees.
In addition, SILive reports that a local source with "knowledge of the plans" said the new Staten Island location is just waiting for final signatures, which could come "in a matter of days." The site of the first restaurant? Richmond Valley, according to the source.
There's also a Craigslist posting seeking managers for a Sonic location reportedly opening in the borough next year. See Staten Island, we told you to keep hope alive. Your prayers were answered in less than a day.
