MINOT, N.D. – Rumors have swirled for years, but it now appears a Sonic fast-food restaurant is coming to Fargo.

Abe Sakak, who is part of a development group that is now constructing a Sonic in Minot, said the plan is to build one in Fargo within the next 18 months.

Sakak said they are scouting possible locations in Fargo and one will likely be selected in the next few months.

Over the next three to four years, the group expects to have Sonics in Bismarck, Grand Forks, Dickinson and Williston as well as more than one in Fargo, Sakak said.

The Minot Sonic is expected to open in April or May.

The Oklahoma City-based restaurant chain is known for its drive-thru cuisine, but Sakak said given this region’s climate the Sonic being built in Minot will have a dining room.

It is being designed so part of the dining room can be opened to the outdoors during warmer months, Sakak said.
